After Practice Talk From Jeff Blashill

10/03/2019 at 2:15pm EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

“I feel great today,” Larkin said. “I think the orange jersey is just a precautionary thing. I don’t know what color jersey I’ll be wearing (Friday), but I’ll be in the game for sure Saturday. There’s nothing to hold me back.”

Said coach Jeff Blashill: “We had him in a non-contact jersey to be precautious and not have him take any extra hits that he didn’t necessarily need. But obviously he was able to get through that and it sounds like he told (media) he feels good, so I anticipate him to play on Saturday.”...

Andreas Athanasiou missed his second practice in a row Thursday dealing with an injury suffered in a preseason game when he crashed into the boards.

“If he practices tomorrow, then it puts him in position to play on Saturday,” Blashill said. “If he didn’t practice tomorrow, it’d be super-hard to play on Saturday, so I’m hoping he practices tomorrow, and he’ll probably be a game-time decision.”

Blashill described it as a nagging injury....

Blashill said they’re still determining whether Trevor Daley or Madison Bowey will play with Dennis Cholowski on the third defense pairing, at least for the opener. Bowey practiced there much of the time on Thursday.

“We film all the practices, we watch them see who makes the best reads in different situations, whether it’s five-on-five or penalty kill, and we’ll make that determination on Saturday who plays,” Blashill said.

Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
