Coach Maurice – Players getting ramped up for a pre-season game. Hard to stay engaged in the game when he is evaluating the prospects. What will he be looking for from his rookies/what makes it a successful pre-season game from the prospects? What is the appeal of the Burmistrov/Perreault/Ehlers line? How will he manage his goalies during pre-season? Injury talk. Could the Burmistrov/Perreault/Ehlers benefit facing off against other team’s 3rd lines? Was this (using a skill 3rd line) something he considered previously or is it a function of having talent? Talking about when it was “easier” to shut down the Jets. What is he hoping to see from Copp/Armia/Lemieux?
