Coach Maurice: Did he see what he wanted from his group to end the games of training camp? Thoughts on the goal from Kyle Connor and the chemistry of the top line. Did the way his pre-season go sway his opinion as to whether he should go 13/8 or 14/7 for roster composition? Did he feel like the guys on the bubble make any separation? What is the focus of the group over the course of the next week? Any concern with the cross-ice opportunities? What was he looking for when he flipped Lemieux/Vesalainen? What did Skyler McKenize do for his stock?
The Jets have a day off tomorrow but are expected to make a number of cuts to the current roster. Stay tuned to our web site illegalcurve.com and on social media including Twitter | Facebook | Instagram. You can also follow me on twitter as well (@icdave).
