07:23 AM ET 06.25 | Heading into the offseason, Brent Burns said, for training purposes, it might help to know whether he'll be a power forward or a puck-moving defenseman this coming season. When it comes to [Burns'] position for the 2013-14 season, it's still TBD, according to Doug Wilson. Wilson and head coach Todd McLellan mentioned after the season that they would like the 28-year-old to know what they have in mind for him. "We're not there yet, but it's a good luxury to have," Wilson said about the looming decision. While Burns was a force up front with 20 points in 23 games, playing mostly with Joe Thornton and TJ Galiardi, it doesn't appear to be a slam dunk that he'll be a forward when training camp opens in the fall. That will likely depend on what the Sharks' roster looks like.

I would think that a player wanting to know so he could train accordingly would be a good sign, so why the wait?
