from Katie Strang of ESPN,
STRANG: How different is it in the room these days than it was the first few months?
FOLIGNO: Oh, the confidence is there. You can see it. I think the younger guys have come along really nicely and we've had a lot of new faces, so I think they've found their roles with the team and I think it's allowed us to play more cohesive as a team. [Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky] has been playing great for us. That always helps any team, when you have a hot goaltender. We've got to keep that going. We're finding a lot of good ways to play good hockey right now and we need that to continue.
STRANG: You're a pending unrestricted free agent, so I'm sure you'll be getting asked this a lot in the near future, but what's your expectation about how this will go and what would you like to see happen?
FOLIGNO: It's funny. This is my first time kind of going through it. I'm kind of green but obviously my first priority is to want to sign with the [Blue Jackets]. I love it here. I feel like I've really started to build something here and I want to see this team through because I think we have a lot of key components to being a winning team. I want to help in that regard, so that's definitely the case, but it's a business and you realize that the longer it goes. It's definitely somewhere where I want to invest time in and hopefully get a deal done, but I know that you have to look out for family as well and do what's right for you personally.
