Brent Burns remains steaming mad at his former team. On Thursday, the All-Star defenseman will have a chance to exact a measure of revenge when the San Jose Sharks host the Minnesota Wild at HP Pavilion. "I've been watching how they've been doing, hoping that they would lose every game," Burns told the San Jose Mercury News. "It's like an ex-girlfriend. You really don't want her to get the white-picket fence and the great job." The 20th overall pick in the 2003 draft, Burns found his way to San Jose in a draft day trade that sent right wing Devin Setoguchi, center Charlie Coyle and the 28th overall selection to Minnesota (8-3-3). Burns, 26, has collected three goals and two assists in 13 games this season with the Sharks (8-4-1).
