Hopefully he has a good off-season and adds some bulk to him. The way the guy throws around his body, he needs some extra beef to prevent injury.
That's one way to look at it. I also thought (hoped) that for about a minute, but the fact that he took the Sharks to arbitration after not doing a whole hell of a lot for them makes me think otherwise.

IMO he probably meant that the Sharks as a team are looking for some redemption from last year's early playoff exit.

I'm a McGinn apologist; I wasn't that impressed with Galiardi or Winnick. But I do feel that our crappy system was at least somewhat to blame for their struggles.
