Insider Q&A – Finally, A Day To Exhale

A day to breathe, Insiders.

It’s been a steady stream of stuff since September. Australia, road winning streak, disastrous slump, coaching change, playoff clinch, disappointing exit, coaching hire, Dubois/Kuemper trade, new logo, new jerseys, NHL Draft, Jeannot trade, Edmundson/Foegele signings…….and finally we’ve reached this point.

Lots more went into those moves, but the offseason has been much busier to date than perhaps it’s felt in past years. For the next two months, it’s time to breathe a bit. Not much happening……until it is. For today, how about an afternoon Q&A. Hit me with your questions and I’ll do my best to give you my thoughts.
