The big talk today was about Patrik Laine and you can read all about that here which includes comments from captain Blake Wheeler and coach Paul Maurice.
Both groups took to the humid ice at the IcePlex for a skate today.
Adam Lowry (Lots of CBA talk)
Coach Maurice: Is any of this (RFA situation, Byfuglien absence, Niku/Vesalainen accident). Can he shed any more light on Byfuglien status? What will the lineup look like tomorrow? Status of Copp/Ehlers? Is McKenzie getting close? On Niku/Vesalainen with opportunity in front of them and then that happens. Would he lobby not to have training camp start on Friday the 13th?
