Recchi Meeting The Challenges

from the Philadelphia Daily News,

“I still don’t know why it happened here,” he said. “But then that kind of pushes you, too. You want to stuff it to people who don’t believe in you. I played hurt through all those playoffs and I did a lot for the organization, so you know, it was a little disappointing. But that’s what keeps you going. If you don’t have that little bit of bite in you, there’s no use playing.”
