I love my team.

I had the opportunity on Tuesday morning to go to a breakfast where Jeff Rimmer, Mike Priest, Scott Howson, and my personal favorite Ken Hitchcock spoke. Rimmer basically gave a general talk and said that he was excited for the season and that there is a lot of 'professionalism' and accountability in the dressing room, but we need to wait and see what they do on the ice. Priest spoke mainly of the business of the team like how far we've come since getting the team. Howson spoke about building the team and how you've got to develop your players and how you have to have the right players on the ice. Like he always says anyone has a chance to make the team come training camp. Then Hitch got up he was the one to not use the microphone. He said we know what everyone is saying, they're saying we're going to finish 13th or 14th in the conference. They don't know our team. I know our team. Since I took over the team we were a .500 team. I'm in the business of winning. Our team is completely healthy and there won't be any off time at training camp. He got me completely pumped up for the season. I am so excited to see these boys out on the ice. I want to see what they do. I have a feeling that they will surprise a lot of people. Training camp starts tomorrow. I won't be attending the Friday session but I am hoping to make it up to the Saturday session.
