What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:
- Justin Williams took a step forward in his rehab today. He is recovering beyond quickly.
- Derick Brassard has been taking some on-ice lessons from former Sabres legend Danny Gare. Always nice to see youngsters trying to get better.
- Guy Carbonneau says he can understand why Montreal fans booed Mark Streit. I don’t think many people find any fault with Streit leaving.
- Mike Sullivan has returned to the Lightning as an assitant coach. The weird moves continue in Tampa Bay. We all know Sullivan is a capable coach but he was working directly with John Tortorella last season. Also, it seems odd to make a coaching move a week after the Melrose firing, instead of right at that time.
