'Last season we couldn't win at home and we were losing on the road. My failure was that I couldn't think of any place else to play.'
'A fast body-contact game played by men with clubs in their hands and knives laced to their feet.'
'I'm not dumb enough to be a goalie.'
'We take the shortest route to the puck and arrive in ill humor.'
'I always tell Bobby he was up in the air so so long that I had had time to shower and change before he hit the ice.'
'Ice hockey is a form of disorderly conduct in which the score is kept.'
'You do dat, you go to da box, you know, uh, two minutes by yourself, and you feel shame, you know, and then you get free.'
