QAlso, a thanks to, among others, Dennis in Marshfield, Wis., for reading the blog this week! I really figured by this point I’d be making some questions up to answer myself, so thanks to everyone! Still need a name for the blog …
: Ryan, I am from Spokane, Wash., and have been following your blog for news on Justin Falk
. Didn't see him on the roster from the game on Wednesday and haven't seem him on the list of players returned to their junior team. Can you tell me what his status is? While we would love to have him back here in Spokane, we would also love to see him succeed at the next level.
Thanks in advance for any info you can share. I will keep my fingers crossed for him.You rock. Thanks, Ryan.

: Thanks for the note and the kind words, Sheila. Justin is still a member of our 48-man training camp roster, but, as you note is still age eligible to return to junior.Q
: Hi, Ryan. Was wondering how soon you will know the lineup for Sunday's game? I am from Toronto and will travel to Buffalo to watch the game if I know Corey Locke is playing. He's a good local boy and I have watched him play many times in Hamilton. Fun little player to watch. If there is anything you can do to let us know the lineup, that would be great.

: Thanks for the e-mail, Rob. Wild.com is really going global this week. Our coaches typically post the lineup for an exhibition game the day prior -- after the practice session. We skate at 1 p.m. Saturday, so check later on, and we’ll have it here first. With six game in eight nights, and many Wild regulars playing in their second game tonight, it will be interesting to see which prospects get to play when and where in the upcoming stretch.
