-"I wasn't able to train for a year. I don't consider going for a 10-minute run training. When you're doing an activity and hope that you don't get symptoms, that's not really pushing yourself, that's just having daily activity. There's a big difference between training and having physical activity." - Sidney Crosby on the limitations presented by his concussion issues.
-“I had a big injury and came back and played well. We had a great line, but we didn’t win the Stanley Cup.” - Malkin on his 2011-12 season.

-“He’s still demanding of his guys … but he’s really patient when he’s teaching us about what he expects and the reasons why. There’s no grey area out there, it’s: ‘This is how I want it, and this is why I want it.' There’s no in-between with him. 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. I know I can help. You go first and score, it elevates the other shooters, your goalie. Points are just too valuable to waste.” - Panthers forward and former Penguin Alex Kovalev on shootouts. Last season, Florida went 6-11 in shootouts.
-"I watched him play in Montreal [from 2003-09], and it was exciting every game he was there.

-“He doesn’t have the best track record like myself, but he’s a player, too. At the end of the day, there are only a few guys out here that do one thing out there. He’s obviously shown he can do a lot more.” - Coyotes forward Raffi Torres on Matt Cooke changing his game after multiple suspensions. Torres is attempting a similar change after being hit with a 21-game suspension last postseason.
-The NHL and NHLPA amended an earlier agreement regarding compliance buyouts. Instead of having to wait until June to make the buyouts, teams are allowed to extend them now. The change was made in order to allow the Canadiens and Rangers to part ways with forward Scott Gomez and defenseman Wade Redden respectively.
-P.J. Musico made 14 saves for the Penn State men's team in a 3-2 overtime loss to Neumann.
