BENCHMARKS WITH ASSISTANT COACH DANNY FLYNN
Flynn remarks on Day One at camp and previews Day Two

I thought the first day went pretty well. All three groups were ready to go. Everybody's anxious to get started on the new season. We've got some good veteran leadership, and that's nice to see. We're all excited about starting to build a hockey program here.

The first day I was just looking for hands and timing. A lot of guys had a chance to play over the summer. It's different, though, when the guys are out there and the coaches are setting the pace. But we were all happy with the first day.

I noticed quickly Viktor Kozlov and what good size he has what great skill he has for a big guy. He was one guy who certainly caught my eye.

You can see how quickly the community has embraced us. It's a warm community. They're so happy to have the organization here and that's something that jumps at you as soon as you get off the plane. The type of coach Ted his, he wants to build a team first attitude with a hard working gritty type of game. I think the fans will come to respect that and really come to enjoy it.

The theme for today was hands and skills. Days Two, Four and Six will be part of our round-robin tournament with Team Henning, Nystrom and Tonelli playing one another. We're anxious as coaches to see what the players can do. It's an exciting time of year. Everyone's in first place.

Hockey is a competitive sport. Hopefully we'll see today who the competitors are. We're willing to sacrifice some skill to bring forth some competitors, because we strongly believe that's what wins in the end."
