Joe Shawhan was in for Mel today:
Dirk asked for any info on Steaman - Joe knew nothing. Both him and Baltus looked great Saturday morning. Just need to keep monitoring Steman.
Most important for Joe is the first round matchup
Walt is a great friend of Joe, happy for their recent success at NMU
How do you keep Kero/Wintjes motivated with Angus having less than perfect performance on Friday then getting the Sat start?
Joe takes Tony Dungy approach, not coaches job to motivate players, but sees the point of the question. We're working with those guys everyday, and they are working, have no problem putting any of the three in net.
Thought maybe no Angus last Saturday, but can see that if Angus had sat, with the bye it would've been two weeks of stewing on a less than perfect game.
