Around the UC:

-Huet: "I was disappointed, but Antti played well. The bottom line is we won, and there is nothing you can say about coaching or management decisions. I had my chance, and I didn't take it."
ChicagoTribune: For Cristobal Huet, playing in Switzerland feels like exile

-Kane: “It definitely humbles you. 250 points at 22 years old is something I can definitely be proud of. I know I can play better, I can produce even more so hopefully it leads to good things down the road.”

-Niemi: "Someone was saying or writing that 'Niemi didn't understand what was going on.' And that's funny because we had these conference calls with my agent. And we'd talk in English and then in Finnish so I knew what was going on the whole time. It was unbelievable reading that."

-Bolland on Turco: ''A lot of guys have their ups and downs, but having veteran guys that have been through this league helps a lot of young guys with the little things. He's a great guy and a great veteran to have on this team.''

-"But while a majority of the photos in this book are of the feel-good variety, here's a warning: many of the photos in “One Goal Achieved” may induce sighs or cause eyes to water because they are of key players from last season who have since departed, players such as Andrew Ladd, Dustin Byfuglien and Kris Versteeg. Don't let that deter you, though; this is a first-class book. But what else would you expect from an organization that strives to do everything first class?"
