All Ryan Getzlaf

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Burnside: When you go into that locker room Sunday and know that you’re now in the final four, a lot of the guys will not have been there, will you think about 2007, does it come up or is it one of those things that you have to push to the side?

Getzlaf: I think about what got us there. I draw back on ’07 all the time. Every story is either before the Cup or after the Cup. I think when you’re talking about playoffs, playoff runs, you always draw back on experience like that where you’re thinking about what it took to win. What we did differently than we did other years. And you draw back and you think about them. I try and use some of that information to share with the guys and other information I just save for myself.

Burnside: What’s the best thing about being the captain of this team?

Getzlaf: Oh, the pride. Being a captain is a tremendous honor in the NHL. It doesn’t happen to everybody. It’s not just given to you. It’s a sense of accomplishment. You’ve earned it. Sense of a pride. I think the whole thing is based on what you do as an individual, how you carry yourself and a good responsibility to have.
