Buff still prefers 'D' job

  • Print

DUSTIN Byfuglien was asked Sunday if he expected to start next season at forward. His answer:

"I hope not," he said. "It's been done before, so it wasn't the end of the world. I just had to go do my job, that's it. I always prefer defence first but whatever they tell me to do, I'll just go do it."

Just to clear up any mystery, Maurice was asked later where he saw Byfuglien lining up. And he didn't hesitate for a second before responding, "He'll be starting at forward."

Asked what's next for him in the off-season Byfuglien, an avid fisherman, added:

"I'll just check the water temperatures and see where the depths are right now and go from there."

He said he'll take a couple weeks off before training again. As to when he'll start fishing again, he cracked: "Probably tomorrow."
