BENCHMARKS WITH ASSISTANT COACH DANNY FLYNN
Flynn remarks on the first Blue-White Game and previews Day Four

(Yarmouth, Nova Scotia) "It was certainly nice to see a full house here in Yarmouth at the game. It brings out the best in players. We're starting to learn more about the players every day. It's a whole new coaching staff and there are a lot of new people here. It's preparation time for the players and evaluation time for the coaches. Each time we see them play we learn more about them and see how the team is going to fit together.

"I thought Jeff Tambellini had a real good day. I thought Miroslav Satan has been solid for us every night. I thought Viktor Kozlov had a real good day. There were lots of positives, but those three guys caught my eye.

"On the prospect side, I thought Mike Mole had a good day today. Jason Pitton worked hard and caught our eye. We're seeing positives from lots of players. Hopefully, when we see more players and play against other teams we'll get a better idea of how the team will come together.

"Teddy's philosophy is that he wants players who want to compete hard and play with lots of grit and lots of energy and play with intelligence. Tomorrow at the next round of scrimmages we'll be looking for players who work hard and want to compete. That's going to be the starting point of this team."
