Kris talking about Day 1 of Pens Training Camp (Source Pens website)

Kris Letang

On how he feels about the team
We have a good core, we have good young kids coming up. I think overall, we have good depth and we're looking for another good season.

On what Steve Sullivan can bring to the power play:
Obviously he's a fast skater, he's got quick hands, he's a good shooter, but I think his first quality is that he's really good with the puck. On the power play, he's been playing the point a lot in Nashville. I think he's got a good shot, he's a great play maker, he sees the ice really well.

On the competition on defense:
It's always like that at training camp. There's always guys that want to make the last one or two spots on the roster, but everybody is really good coming into training camp, everyone's in good shape, you could tell yesterday by the testing and on-ice tests. It's going to be a battle, there is a lot of guys, even up front they have a lot of competition.

On if things are more certain this year in the defensive pairings:
Last year, I played mostly with (Orpik) and Z and Pauly played together, but it's something that we'll see in training camp, if I play with Pauly and it goes pretty well, it might change the pairing. It's just a question of chemistry on the ice right now and getting back together and getting our timing back.
