Curtis Hunt quotes as he's preparing for 09-10

From Rod's blog. Hopefully he doesn't mind that I am posting the comments (saves people from having to scroll and search out the comments.

Pats coach Curtis Hunt was on Sportsline last night as well. The team dropped goalies Linden Rowat and Derek Tendler on Monday and has elected to go with Damien Ketlo and Dawson Guhle for the 2009-2010 season. Here are some comments from Curtis from the show:

ON WHERE THEY STAND AFTER THE PRESEASON:

HUNT: I look at us today and we're a better group and a better team. We're a lot more committed unit and have a greater understanding of what we need to be than when we first got together for camp a month ago.

ON MISSING FOUR NHL DRAFTED PLAYERS RIGHT NOW:

HUNT: Obviously you're taking out four go-to players (Jordan Eberle, Colten Teubert, Matt Delahey and Garrett Mitchell) with great experience in the league. That's a big void in terms of leadership as well as the abilities they bring to the game. Having said that it's allowed us a look into the window of the future because a lot of young players had to step up and fill some valuable ice time.

ON THE TRADEMARK HE'D LIKE FOR HIS REGINA PATS:

HUNT: Our mandate here is we want to be an aggressive hockey club that plays with great responsiblity. We want to be stingy defensively but we want to provide some offence for our fans. We want to be a team that can win games 2-1, but also a team that can come from behind. Are we there yet? No.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
