from Ben Wright of Thrashers.com,
What is it about playing defense that makes you prefer it over playing up at forward?
BYFUGLIEN: It’s just coming up the ice and being able to see everything and being able to read the game. You control so much more of the game back there. It’s just something I enjoy doing.
What went through your mind when you were told about the trade?
BYFUGLIEN: Right away I was actually bummed. After coming off of winning the Cup, it wasn’t even two weeks after we won. You’re still in a celebration mode, but once I got off the phone and sat down and really thought about it I was excited. I was ready to get out of there and get ready for a new change and set new goals for myself. I’m excited and I can challenge myself for new things in life. It’s just another step.
