Some quick notes from today’s non-practice:
I asked Voros about his time out of the lineup, and the forward was both honest and diplomatic.
“It’s bittersweet obviously,” he said. “You want to be in helping the team and you consider yourself valuable, but obviously we’re performing well. So here’s no reason to change anything. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I understand. I’d be lying if i said i wasn’t disappointed with the way things have gone, but I hope when I get my opportunity, I’ll be ready to play.”
One of the ways Voros hopes to stay ready is by continuing to work on his fitness. You may recall Tom Renney said that had dropped off a bit before taking taking the player out of the lineup. When I asked Voros about his conditioning, he paused for a few seconds before answering.
“Obviously the coach wants what’s best for the team,” he said. “They have no other prerogative than getting wins. So if the coach has decided your fitness level has slipped, they obviously have the most to gain by having you perform at the highest level. So that’s something they noticed and felt I needed to address. And I have addressed it.”
