from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,
Q: Are you surprised you’re still here?
A: Not really, no. It got intense, but to tell you the truth, I didn’t really know. They were just rumors to me.
Q: Is life without trade rumors a relief?
A: I was just tired of talking about it; people coming up to me. I left for a few weeks and it felt good after the season. I didn’t want to hear anything about anything. I wanted to have a little break. Obviously, when I went back to Montreal (before the draft), that started again. But since July 1, it’s been pretty low key. It’s very nice.
Q: How do you feel about the team going into camp?
A: I’m feeling very good. You look at the defensemen we have. By getting these veteran guys who have a lot of experience, it all starts there. They have more experience in the zone and playing defensively. They can get the puck out, which will help us offensively. To get those big defensive guys, it’s going to change the look of the team, definitely.
