-"I wasn't able to train for a year. I don't consider going for a 10-minute run training.

There's a big difference between training and having physical activity." - Sidney Crosby on the limitations presented by his concussion issues.

You play good or you play bad, guys know what to expect.” - Canadiens forward and former Penguin Colby Armstrong on his new/old coach, Michel Therrien (right), also formerly of the Penguins.
-“I’m not a big fan of the shootout, but I know they want more points, more fun for the fans. Hopefully, we don’t go to many shootouts. We want to win in regulation. But I know what I need to do.
