Kris Letang D PIT Oct 24 '78
Kris Letang spoke about the challenges of such a short turnaround from the end of the lockout to regular season games.
Players won't have nearly the practice time of a normal training camp, and they won't have any exhibition games to get in game shape and regain chemistry with teammates. "Timing is going to be off for everybody," Letang said. "We need the practice games more than the practices; but only five days of practice is not enough to get everything working."
