Not much revealed because that’s how Nill is.
-Nill is going to do exit interviews with the players to get their perspective about why things fell apart.
-Didn’t give an especially ringing endorsement of Hitch, but also wasn’t overtly critical.
-Said he talks to Gaglardi daily, but interestingly, Nill uses “they” when talking about ownership. Don’t know who all he means by they.
-Calls Heiskanen a franchise-changing player.
-Doesn’t sound like he has any sort of commitment from Nichushkin.
-Thinks Honka will be a better player thanks to not playing all season.

Has a couple quotes.
He has a contract that allows him to be "promoted" to an advisor's position at any time. Should the team consider that after just one season?
Something they need to do
Can this team live with the mistakes of young players while trying to win now? It's something they haven't balanced in the past while churning through 19 different defensemen in Nill's five years at the helm.
