"I expect a lot out of myself every year," [Martin St. Louis] said. "And if you start giving yourself excuses, you're just speeding up the process of fading away."
"Everyone kind of feels a little bit older every year," wing Teddy Purcell said. "But I think he's going the opposite way. He just gets younger."
"He's a machine — he's that little ball of fire," captain Vinny Lecavalier said. "You'd think he's 22."
"You don't realize how hard you have to work until you watch a guy like Marty," teammate Steven Stamkos said. "That's why he's been so successful, there's a correlation there." (...) I'm trying to keep him young, and he's trying to keep (me) wise," Stamkos said. "It's been a great ride so far, hopefully it's only the beginning and we have a lot of great years ahead of us."
"This guy has been unbelievable for the organization and the people around him," Boucher said. "I don't know when or how it's going to be recognized, but in my book right now, he's already won."
But St. Louis hasn't dwelled on the opportunities missed in the 116 games lost to lockouts. "Maybe I'll just play an extra year," he said with a smile.
