Good job on the Utah Grizzlies season preview. Daley should have a good season in Utah. The goalie battles will be very interesting to watch with Cash and Ellis at it all season. Should be fun to watch.
Glu nice job. Utah is also quite young and that will be a factor. Question is Smith likely headed to Idaho after Ellis's fine camp. Interested in seeing the success of Bararuk, St. Jacques and Peters. Are the latter two Stars property. Both had good jr careers and Peters especially could have been a drraft worthy IMO. Another amazing point is daley is the youngest player in Utah. Who are Konopka and Stafford?
That wasn't my article. It was Keith's. I went in and changed that.
Goaltending situation: I still think Ellis might go to Idaho. It's all about the minutes, fine camp or not.
Also, St. Jacques was cut by Utah recently.

I actually had about 4 long quotes taken out of the article by the editor(apparently, I am not allowed to lift quotes from other news sources, even if I give credit). So, that's why it might seem to jump around a bit and was a little on the short side.
If I had to do it again, I'd probably paraphrase a couple of things the organization had said (which IS allowed) regarding their plans for talent development, new coaching drills, and the changes between this team and the last one.
