Setting the Scene in Traverse City; Victory

Hi all. Thanks for checking in.

We got into Traverse City on Friday night and everyone was kind of everywhere at first. We had a meeting and, because there are some new guys to the area and few guys who know each other, it was kind of quiet.

On Friday we had practice and it kind of starts with the guys who have been here for the summer, like myself, Phil (McRae), Ian (Cole) and Delli (Stefan Della Rovere). We just kind of loosened up the room a little bit and it went pretty well.

We had a mini-golf tournament Friday night -- we're just trying to keep it loose. It's been a lot of fun and it's a good bunch of guys and you have to get everyone comfortable in being in their first pro camp and it's our first camp as a team. It kind of starts with us as leaders and works its way down.

We won our tournament opener on Saturday against Tampa Bay. From a team standpoint, there will be mistakes, it's your first game in 6-7 months, so in that sense, there were a couple of turnovers you want to correct but overall a pretty good hockey game. I thought we played pretty well defensively and certainly the offense was there with the guys we have; you're going to get those chances. It was physical out there and it was a good first game to get under our legs and tomorrow will be a better test (Sunday against Dallas, 1:30 p.m.)

We're excited about this year, playing here, especially when you have this many guys who finished fourth and fifth the last couple of years. We have high expectations for ourselves and hopefully we can meet those expectations. It's always tough not winning, so this year we want to put our best foot forward and come out with the win.
