GM Ron Francis on the Expansion Draft

"The weather couldn't have been any more perfect and the background was outstanding will all of the boats in the water and the people in the stands. I was very proud to be a part of the Expansion Draft and very proud of our group and how hard they worked. We're very pleased that this is the team we're starting with. We're excited to have the puck drop in October."
