Davey Emala and Justin Turri talked enthusiastically as the season opener approached about the reasons they are excited for this year’s Boston Cannons team.
One of the reasons for that is because both Major League Lacrosse veterans had decided to take more of an ownership stake in the squad after last year’s disappointing campaign.
"There were conversations that took place about the future of our organization," Emala said during the team’s media day at Warrior Ice Arena on March 26 following the opening weekend of training camp. "I’ve always had a lot of confidence in our front office that they’re going to do the right things and work to get it right. They were very aware that we weren’t where we wanted to be last year. I tried to increase my role and be in more communication with them, to try to be a medium between the coaches and players."
Turri echoed similar sentiments about the changes that he felt needed to occur and about how he hoped to impact those changes.
