Winnipeg Free Press: Coach still sorting out lines. Coach Noel was fired up during and following practice as he tinkers with his lines and tries to get the best out of his squad.
Winnipeg Sun: Noel wants more effort. He was a quote machine today during the post-practice scrum.
Illegal Curve: Coach Noel presser. Meeting day? Find anything out? (Quote 1). Injury update (Slater is more day to day more like a week, Bogosian is maintenance, Stuart is hopeful). Has he spoken to Tangradi about what he needs to do and would he share? (Not surprisingly he said no). Drilling puck possession in at practice. Challenge to find right combo of 3? (Quote 2). Needing top players to be top players (Quote 3). Concerned about players who are ‘down’(Quote 4). Is someone in the room able to hold other players accountable? (Quote 5). (Note: Quotes can be found in above post).
