We exchanged last year [Jake] Lucchini because we’ve been in this situation and we know Lucchini is doing really well there in Belleville (Ottawa Senators’ Ranch Club, editor’s note). We want to be patient, they will play, all the players will play during the year. It’s just that at the beginning of the year it’s a little more difficult to get everyone involved. I’m sure Joël, when he has the chance to come back, will play well. »
