Not surprisingly, Jeremy Roenick was the most outspoken about what’s likely to be in store for the Sharks:
“I don’t see how there can’t be big changes,” Roenick said. “When you underachieve like we did in the playoffs, there has to be major change. I don’t know what that it is. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of closed-door meetings. I don’t think anybody should feel safe.”
What are his plans as far as returning or retirement?
“I’m just going to sit back, relax and spend some time with my family. I’m going to talk to Doug and Todd in the next couple of weeks. I’m totally up in the air. I could go either way. I’m not going to make any rash decisions. I don’t want to pull a Brett Favre and say something when your emotions are running high.”
Might some guys decide they want to be elsewhere?
“When you’re in one place for a long time, it really does get stale. It’s hard to stay in one place for a long, long time, especially when you haven’t won. If you don’t win, there’s change. It’s inevitable.”
