Slight detour from the daily hate parade on Tallinder, if I may
Some praise on the team environment from Oates after last night's game...
Tom Gulitti @TGfireandice
Adam Oates spoke glowingly today about "the Devils' culture" and he and George McPhee agreeing they want to establish that with Caps.
Oates on Devs' culture: "no matter what Marty’s your goalie and we’re going to protect him and minimize the chances...and yet we’re going to score enough goals. This is how we do it. The culture has never changed and that’s one of the things I talked to George about. What the system will allow us to do is... that every single night the car is going to run itself and we just have to make sure we don’t derail it. Patrik Elias has been there a long time. So, he’s been doing that play for 15 years of his career, not just for a year and the culture has never changed."
(scraps of TGs tweets put together, it's a little rough)
