Coach Maurice – Was the group receptive to what he wants to do? Is Andrew Ladd good to go? B/C of youth of team when achieving success does light go off for them? Being able to have 1 on 1 conversations. How much pride does he take in the Hurricanes franchise? Challenges his team will face tonight? Power Play discussion. Has he shifted any of the responsibilities of his assistant coaches (Pascal Vincent & Charlie Huddy). Is he considering a third assistant coach?

On Ladd – “He’s good. He has a no practice clause in his contract. I’ve got to get him six practices off a month or his agent calls me.”
On challenges Hurricanes will bring tnt – “Speed. Speed and pace. If you look back even at the last month, when the Carolina Hurricanes get any kind of rest, two or three days off, they come out with a real quick, real fast performance.”
