On what he’ll be watching from Jonathan Quick tonight:
First exhibition game. I’m not really watching anything. I just want to get him some minutes in. He’ll tell me when he’s had enough.
On whether he expects any emotion from last season to carry into tonight’s game:
No. It really has nothing to do with anything. It’s preseason. There’s nothing on the line. The only emotion that some guys would show would be trying to earn a spot on their roster.
On competition despite the availability of open roster spots:
It’s not just roster spots. It’s also guys that know they’re going to the American League knowing where they slot in so that if we need a player, where we would like them. I mean, we’ve sent guys down that are ahead of some guys who are still here, but we’re playing some younger guys.
Projected Sharks lineup:
