Coach Maurice – Has he made a decision regarding the 4th line? Is there an ideal way to prepare players for the regular season? Pros/cons starting on the road? Might it be best to start on the road with all the learning curves? What does he feel has improved about this team? How important is it to win early to maintain belief? What’s it like to have so many options with players who have versatility? Is it harder to define roles on this team? What does he expect from Arizona? Is it more about his team than who they are facing? Is there a concern with the defence of the Kane/Scheifele/Wheeler line? On the “sheltering” of Scheifele in terms of faceoffs? How much of a makeover did Pavelec’s confidence require? On the comments Corey Hirsch made about Pavelec being stubborn and tough to coach? Is it the Winnipeg Jets against the world (based on the prognostications of the media)?
