Coach Maurice – The note left by Coach Noel. Will he reach out to Claude? Skill of the team and allowing the players to flourish. First win make it an easier transition? Status of Evander Kane. Intense practice. New impressions of Buff? Time limit on when he decides where he is going to play Buff? Different impressions after a few days? Thoughts on the leadership of this team.

On the note from Coach Noel – “They are very special people here. Great town”.
On Kane – “Soon I guess. He’s got the injury on the paw and for me I don’t want him back until that thing is healed because the infection in those can cause problems all year and sometimes permanently. So we are going to be really, really careful with him. I don’t have anything closer than day to day.”
On Buff – “I think there is too much focus on him, far too much”
On last night – “That was one of the most enjoyable nights of my hockey career last night”
