“I wasn’t happy about it last night. You can say a million words about getting better but coach says I’m not playing, so I’m not playing.
“I’m not happy about it. I just want to play every game.
“I’m going to play my game. I’m not going to change but maybe play better without the puck, or forecheck more, but I love playing with the puck. I really don’t like skating all the time, and forechecking, and hitting somebody every shift. I don’t think it’s my game.”
-Nail Yakupov of the Edmonton Oilers on being a healthy scratch last night. More from Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal.
