How would you characterize your current preparations for the upcoming season?
“Right now, it’s unusual territory just because of the lockout. We can’t have any contact with the players, which ordinarily we’d be helping them workout and guiding them. So, we are pretty much limited to just watching tape and planning things we might want to do differently — different calls we might make and different ideas we are bouncing around. It’s pretty difficult to not have any contact with the players.”
