"All’s I know is that it’s been an absolute pleasure playing with those guys in the past two years. I wouldn’t be where I am as far as coming back and the contract. I wouldn’t be there without those guys. "
"People call me ‘Looch’ on the street. I don’t know if I should take it as compliment or not. "
I never wanted to see my dad criticized, especially when I see how passionate he is about the game. That’s all he does. He stays up until the last game on the West Coast is over. He watches more hockey than anybody I know and he really tried to make the right decision. That doesn’t get seen by…
"I think there’s a different opinion between the players that play the game and the people that are involved with hockey directly than there is by media and fans that don’t play the game. In my opinion, those are the people that want to see higher suspensions, and rightfully so. They’re a fan of the game and they didn’t sign up to watch UFC fighting or whatever. But we all as players did sign up to play the game. And with the game, there comes the unfortunate risk of getting injured. I think that’s why you see different reactions from players as opposed to maybe the media or fans. "

Well, I’m not a motivational speaker. I’ve been roommates with him two years now and I’ve developed a relationship where I could tell that he was extremely disappointed [during the week]. He’s a star player. He’s going to be the face of the franchise sooner rather than later. He cares a lot and the growing pains have been there for the last two seasons.
He put together a lot of points for us, but everybody expects so much out of him. He’s had a giant bear on his shoulders out there [in the playoffs].
