I believe of course how we are going to cope with the pandemic, COVID environment we are working in,’’ Cashman said. “Been accustomed over class of time to dealing with injuries as they manifest by themselves, but if we have a sport tomorrow and your starter shows up and he has a temperature and all of a unexpected has indications out of the blue suitable prior to the start out and how do you adjust together the way. And then the connectivity to that and clearly the roster you have to offer with.’’
