I am sure I will miss a lot so please feel free to add. I missed the very beginning.

Happy with coaching staff and Kelly Buchberger's progression. Thinks Kelly is a great teacher. Thinks he is going to be a great head coach.

You want to be in two places as a coach, either a contender or rebuilding. Hard to be in-between.

Kruger - Instills high work ethic, no matter what the skill level. He is offensive minded but the Swiss can't score.

Renney calls himself through and to the point in his communication, he expects the players to work as hard as the coaching staff does. They have not defined the roles completely. I think he then said he and Kelly on the PP and Steve and Ralph on the PK.

Thinking of line combinations but haven't really put anything in stone yet. The guy in the middle is the key. Whitney and Gilbert are a pretty save bet as together. Everyone has to earn their minutes including the three kids.

Commercial so I will start a new post.
