Longtime Lightning TV play-by-play man has been at training camp every day and is encouraged by what’s happening so far.
“What you look for from players you’re familiar with is if they’re struggling in some way and so far, there are no signs of that. Also you look for surprises from the younger players and to how new guys are fitting in and so far everything looks great.”
“Some of the combinations are interesting. Kubina and Hedman, for instance. Also, the pairings of Gagne and Lecavalier and Stamkos and St. Louis. It’ll be interesting to see those combinations in game action.”
“It’s great to see so many fans. They’ve stuck through a lot recently and to turn out in the numbers they have for training camp is a great sign. I think this area is ready to explode.”
“(Richard) Panik has been very impressive. Also, I like what I’ve seen from Carter Ashton and Dominic Moore. You always like to see guys step up when they get an opportunity like this.”
