PK: No problem and thanks.
I'd like to thank Patrick for his time. He was openly receptive to taking the time out to talk with me. He is a great kid with a promising future. I really feel bad for opposing players who will have to face him in camp this year. He is dead set on making this club from day 1. Well Patrick if you get to see this. Thanks again & good luck in camp.
Check in for Friday for a Q & A with Tim Kennedy
