Transcripts of today’s Q&A’s with Manny Malhotra, Henrik Sedin, Alex Edler, Daniel Sedin, Christian Ehrhoff, and coach Alain Vigneault.
Q. Manny, can you end the suspense and tell us if you’re playing tonight?
MANNY MALHOTRA: It’s gone from day to day to game-time decision right now. I’m honestly not trying to send you guys on a wild goose chase. That’s just the nature of the situation right now.
Q. At this point in the day, do you feel healthy enough to play?
MANNY MALHOTRA: I feel really good, yeah. I felt good yesterday skating. Felt good this morning. So, again, hopefully I’ll continue throughout the day.
Q. Manny, what were you looking for from your game to give you an indication that you’re ready?
MANNY MALHOTRA: It’s tough to say. Obviously being good in the circle is going to be a big part of what I do. It’s always tough to say how your legs are going to be responding in a game. I felt good the last few days of skating as far as my wind goes.
I think early on, things we’re going to talk about if I go, is just simplicity, getting my feet moving, getting pucks in, making smart decisions with the pucks, keeping things real basic for right now.
From the pre-series Q&A with Canucks players Ryan Kesler, Dan Hamhuis, Christian Ehrhoff, Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin. Below is the complete transcript.
Q. You talk about how you know that there’s pressure, you’ve mentioned it before. It’s almost a situation where you seem to really like it. How much different is the pressure in the third round compared to the second round to the regular season?
HENRIK SEDIN: Not a whole lot different. It’s never going to change. It’s always going to be the same. Either you like it and you enjoy playing under pressure or you’re moving out of there. That’s the way it is. We really enjoy playing where people care. There’s a lot of attention on the team, so that’s not a problem for us.
DANIEL SEDIN: I agree. You either embrace it, or like Henrik said, you choose not to play in a Canadian city or in the NHL. You have to like playing under pressure. Things go bad, things go good, you have to stay the same. That’s the number one thing.
