On team fitness:
Will he pursue Al Montoya to be #2 or seek same within organization?
In hindsight, does he regret not making the decision sooner on replacing coach Noel and why does he think the players bought into the message from coach Maurice?

Is this a team on the cusp?
Anyone else going to World Championships and what does he want guys going to learn?
His contract, Coach Maurice and many of the core players contracts expire at around same time. Coincidental or by design?
