The team has been tested lately as several players have missed time with injuries and illness, particularly on the blueline. How does it feel to finally have enough depth to rely on during these stretches?
This is the most depth we’ve ever had at every position starting with goalies right through defense and forwards. We know we’re going to have injuries. We went through it last year and we’ve gone through it every year. There’s no doubt that we feel good about the guys that have been able to jump right in and play. With Coburn coming in and doing well and with Popovic playing a few games for us- we feel that he can step in right now also. It’s a nice luxury to have, but you can never have too many quality defensemen, especially at this time of year because you know that injuries are always going to be a part of the game.
