All Jim Nill

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Q: How do you feel about entering the third season of your tenure? Is there increased pressure or are you further along with the plan, so maybe you're more comfortable with the organization?

Nill: "I'm not worried about pressure. We've got some of the best players in the world and the NHL, and our job is to win, so we're looking forward to it. We think we have a good thing going here, and we have been patient with our young kids and they're coming along. We've been fortunate enough to make some good trades and sign some good free agents. We're excited about the year. Our expectations are high and they should be."

Q: You have made a lot of changes. How far along are you on where you want to be?

Nill: "There's a process. You can't come in and get a job and expect things to happen overnight. This is the best hockey league in the world and there are 29 other teams trying to win as well. You're not going to find a No. 1 defenseman or a No. 1 centerman overnight. There's a process that has to happen, but I think we're right on pace with where we want to be....
