from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,
Were you worried about the future, your career, when you sustained your back injury in the playoffs last season?
"A little bit yeah, because I heard when it's a back injury it can go downhill quickly. When you start having problems with the back you can have problems over and over. So you get some things in your mind, but I always tried to look at it in a positive way and so far it has improved so much, so I'm happy about it."
What clicked for you that you knew you weren't going to have to worry about those things, that those questions were not going to be concerns for you?
"Well, after we won the Cup, we talked about if I should go to surgery or not. To me, surgery is always the last option. When I can't even move, then we'll have to do it. If I am still OK but I know I can do a couple of shots and that's going to improve it, then why do the surgery? Those shots, especially in training camp and the first month, helped extremely well. Right now I'm playing, and I feel pretty good."
