Is Brent Burns Being Converted To Forward Full Time?

Hi, I'm not a Sharks fan, but I was wondering if Burns is still being played on the blueline, and if so, is that change going to be permanent? I know he was played there for a few games, but can you guys let me know if he's still there? What line was/is he playing on?

He's playing on the first line as a forward still (well except for tonight apparently). McLellan said that he plans to move him back to the blueline BUT that was before he became a total stud as a forward. There's really no reason to bump him down ATM.

He's moving back to defense tonight since Demers is out.

Best guess would be he stays at forward for atleast the rest of this year unless major injuries to our d. He and the team are playing very well with the current setup, no reason to change it at this point.

I would rather have a 50 point defenseman than a forward long-term tbh, but the current forward Burns is damn good.
