"I can't have any doubts or reservations, so we're going to meet as a group to make sure we’re making the right decision. If someone passes Anton, whether it be Zane [McIntyre] or Malcolm [Subban], then we move in that direction. But we've been patient for the development standpoint to try and look internally. But it's a position we've sort of been chasing our tail on a little bit for a couple of years now. I'm very aware of it, do not run from it and I'd like it to be resolved."
