here the take from a bruins and Northeastern fan on Quailer

The most impressive moment I've seen from him this year (which went relatively un-noticed by a lot of the casual hockey fans) was I think the last home game vs Providence. A PU player was skating into our defensive zone with the puck, and Quailer was roughly at the red line, he basically pressed the turbo button and caught right up to the guy. And in one smooth motion, lifted his stick, bumped him off the puck with his hip, stole the puck away, and lead a rush back down the other way.
