Although this trip will include some sightseeing and fun things like that, it will also be a growing experience for many of the players on the team. With not a lot of experience returning to the roster this year, the younger players could use some playing time in real games to get ready for the 2010-11 season, and this trip will definitely provide plenty of opportunities for that.
