Audio:

Bryan Little:  On the team hitting a wall/team confidence.  Does he get a sense from Laine/Ehlers that they are lacking in confidence?  On the passing not being as crisp.  On a contract extension.  Is the team lacking an edge?  When the goal scoring well goes dry.  Does he feel more pressure when he plays with young players to lead them?  Does he have to push them on the defensive end?  Is regaining confidence harder for young guys?

Blake Wheeler:  On the focus of the Jets.  What would it mean to keep Bryan Little long term?  Pushing towards ‘better days’.  Where has the organization taken strides towards this?  Key to breaking out of the slide?  On the youth.  Where do they miss Toby most when he is not in the lineup?  When this group is being successful how would he describe the identity of this team?

Andrew Copp:  What is the team mindset right now?  Thoughts on his new linemates.  Assessing the last block of games.

Coach Maurice:  Injury updates.  Does he push last week away?  On Ehlers/Laine.  Is Bryan Little the kid of player he can slot in to help players who aren’t playing as well.  What was the most concerning part about the loss on Saturday night?  On adjusting the lines.  On his leaders (Little, Wheeler) wanting to be part of the long term solution for this organization.
