Illegal Curve:  Coach Maurice pre-game scrum.   Enthusiasm of the Czech players.  How much input did he have in this acquisition?  What was his thought process on putting Tlusty on 2nd line and Byfuglien back to defence?  On the final stretch, is this a gauge of where his team is?  Any different way to approach this game against Blues as it is one of four?  On the players they’ve brought in (Stafford, Tlusty) and playing for contracts.  What does it do for the mood of the group when a move like this is made?  What does he hope to see from O’Dell?  Is there a common language on the structure he is implementing that Tlusty can understand?
