My interview with Isles Andrew Ladd
At his teammate Anders Lee's Kan Jam event, I was able to catch up with Ladd. Here's the questions I asked him.
Me: "How has the team changed from December to now?"
Ladd: "We had a lot of new guys at the start of the year. Sometimes that takes a little while to gel, and for the new guys to feel comfortable. We obviously he had a slower start than we were all wanted to, but we've found a way to get ourselves back in the playoff race. It's fun to be able to play meaningful games right now."
M: "When you signed here, you were expecting to play with John Tavares. You've settled in the top 9 instead. Is it difficult to change linemates in the middle of the season?"
L: "Sometimes it's nice to get to play with guys, and get comfortable with them. But, the coach gives us the game plan every game. We're all on the same page from that standpoint. It's not too hard. We have a lot of great players on our team, besides Johnny (Tavares). It's great to play with them all.
M: "What do you think of this event Anders Lee is running?"
L: "It's pretty awesome. I think you got to give Anders a lot of credit for organizing this, and make this all happen. It's something everyone gets excited about, raising money for a great cause, and trying to help people out. It's fun to be here and be a part of it.
