This training camp has given Blake Coleman a chance to adjust to his new team.
The Lightning acquired Coleman from the Devils on Feb. 16 to help them with their playoff run. Under normal circumstances, Coleman would have been expected to adapt on the fly, but these are not normal circumstances. After the long pause, Coleman is able to go through a training camp with the Lightning to properly learn the system and get used to his teammates. That's on top of the four months pause, which give him plenty of time to get to know the Lightning better. "All of a sudden you kind of get four months off, but that doesn't mean you're four months away from your coaches and teammates," Cooper said. "Now you're in the group chats. You're communicating with everybody. You know everybody personally a lot better, and then when you come back, it's almost like it's your second year with the team." Jul 18 7:05 pm (EST)
