One of the greatest things about Kurt and all the people with KO is that they bring in guys like Barry Karn and all these different skating and skill people that come in and help us to develop. They care about us off the ice but they obviously have to care about us on the ice and they bring in people to work with us to help us be better and I think that’s special.
