Afternoon Line- Gustav Nyquist

"I think looking at the team, we're in a great spot. A lot of the core players are younger in age, and that's what teams are looking for now, and we've got some great leadership, veteran leadership, on the team, so I think it's a great mix.

"Those guys leaving, a lot of media will talk about that. But I see it as a good opportunity for me personally coming in but also a lot of the guys that are on the team. It's going to give them a lot more opportunities. It's just going to help those younger guys take bigger roles."

"It's a new adventure, that's how we look at it. … It'll be fun to kind of get to know the place a little more. It's funny. I talked to a lot of people after signing there. Everyone says, 'Oh, that's a great city.' That's a good thing to hear. That feels good. I've had no one come tell me, 'Oh …' It's all positive things, so we're really excited."
