Since Paul Maurice has been hired in Winnipeg, I’ve found his interviews to be enlightening and engaging; I’ve enjoyed listening to pretty much every single one. In this article you will find analysis and insight highlighting topics he speaks about that I find interesting. He is one of the best interviewees in hockey and, in my mind, one of the most intelligent as well. He is well known for delivering insightful, well-communicated answers when asked about his hockey club.
When highlighting the differences between last year’s playoff roster and this upcoming season’s roster, the names are easy to switch out, and they’re all at forward.

New to the team this year are Nik Ehlers (19), Nic Petan (20), Andrew Copp (22), and Alex Burmistrov (23), an average age of 21 years old.
