from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
LeBrun: A good place to start: What's the adjustment been like after being with the Devils for so long, the way things were there, to coming here where things are obviously different?
Lamoriello: The people have been great. From the transition end of it, I couldn't have asked for more. As far as being different, naturally things are different. When you've been accustomed to doing things a certain way for so long, it's not saying they're right or wrong, you have to take time to see exactly what and how people are doing things.
LeBrun: Sometimes change is good; people can get complacent being somewhere too long. Do you feel re-energized?
Lamoriello: I do. I don't know if I got complacent by any means ... but right now, yeah, I feel good. I think coming to Toronto, the way the fans have been, the receptiveness, I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to be interesting. I know what the obstacles are, you have to be realistic. Some people have asked about the plan being long-term, that doesn't affect me if I don't see the fruits of it immediately. It's just being a part of the process and doing things and not worrying about the end results. Do all the things that are in your control to help it get to a point. That's what motivates you.
LeBrun: You beat me to an area I was going to touch on. In all the years you've been around, I don't remember you ever using the word "rebuild" --
