Once again a new group of players joined the group already at the IcePlex:
Jets: Dustin Byfuglien, Ron Hainsey, Al Montoya, Grant Clitsome, Andrew Ladd, Chris Thorburn, Olli Jokinen, Tobias Enstrom, Jim Slater and Bryan Little.
Ron Hainsey – His experience as a CBA rep for the team. Concerns how his role could impact future in the game. Should people be concerned about his focus? How he practiced during the lockout. Talks about his level of conditioning. What was it like being in the negotiating session with Mark Chipman in the room. Thankless job being player rep. Message to fans. Any reason to think we won’t be in this position in 8 to 10 years? Does he expect to receive the brunt of fan ire?
Dustin Byfuglien – Conditioning question. How did lockout impact him? Practicing in Minnesota. Another conditioning question. Using a green hockey stick. Better shape then if camp had started in September. Training regiment change at all? Does team need attitude change? Resolution of his court matter. Jets chances this year. What is he expecting from fans. Does Pavelec’s DUI impact relationship with teammates? Expectations for himself.
Al Montoya – Why Winnipeg? What was it like walking in the room for 1st time? How does he feel? How hard was it to wait during lockout? How much does he expect to play? Playing for next contract. Are Jets a playoff team? What he did during the lockout. Can the city live up to the what Toews said it was? Options other than signing in Winnipeg. What makes a successful goalie tandem?
