Interview with Tommy Lynn

I know a lot of people think Tom's a jerk but I kinda like him. He seems to talk without a lot of filters or BS, and I'd rather hear the straight shit and not like it than have to read between the lines of someone who puts pillows around everything.

Anyway, this is a good interview with O'Donnell from the second intermission of Thursday's game. Good talk about the trade deadline, particularly as it relates to the Aeros, in which he basically says further trades aren't likely for the Aeros because the team chemistry is so good, they're afraid to tinker with it and throw it off.

If you believe it (and I think it's prudent to be skeptical), that's good news in several ways. So, I'll take it.

Also a good discussion about why they've called up certain guys and not others, so if you're wondering why you haven't seen Locker up yet, take a listen.

Not "afraid" to tinker, "reluctant" :)

Also, if they made a trade it would be someone who fit with the team chemistry etc. Not a flat out "no" to any trades though.

I wish Joe had asked him about the Backstrom contract ;)

I've found TL to always been pretty straight forward as well. Sometimes he can't answer and will avoid the question but he's been a pretty straight shooter in all of my conversations with him.

I think you characterized him pretty well.

What? You want accuracy? Pfft.
