McLaren to Go?

Sharks beat writer David Pollack is reporting that Kyle McLaren has been kept out of training camp scrimmages, and that it appears Doug Wilson is looking to move the big guy to shed some over-the-cap expenses.

A reliable web site has the Sharks $267,000 over the $56.7 million salary cap — and that does not include pending contracts for Tomas Plihal or Alexei Semenov. The Sharks have until the season begins to lop salary and eliminating McLaren’s $2.5 million from the payroll would seem to get the job done.

Ooooooh. In other Sharks news, the top line at the opening of  training was Marleau-Thornton-Clowe. EXCELLENT first line. The second? Michalek-Pavelski-Cheechoo. Not bad either.

Can we please have Cheechoo?
