-Gives credit to sens in the series...they deserved to win, they were the better team.
- Team slowed down near the end of the season, especially after clinching with the game against the Toronto. Carey had difficulty against them. All teams have difficult times though and we had a little bit of success near the end.
-Says he believes in balance. Team is small, but fast. You do not change the make up of a team over night. Balance is important. You cannot win with only big guys and you cannot with only small guys. You need balance and character players like Gallagher.
Desharnais question and his slip after extension...why sign him early.
-Easy to say in hindsight. Desharnais had a good year last year, had a good start this year...he has arbitration, the way it works with the points he put up, arbitration would have given more or less that money. He did not play well, but he will bounce back. I do not have a crystal ball.
On goaltending and Price's comments about pressure:
- It's normal in a market like Montreal, Toronto and Philly...it is a hard position to play and really demanding and normal that they feel the pressure. Carey Price is 25, it's important to remember. It's hard to deal with pressure at that age. He's personally not concerned. He's 100% behind Carey Price.
-there is more than one need. Depth is the most important, especially in the playoffs. It doesn't occur at the deadline, you get depth at the draft. I am staying pat on this issue. Depth, character and speed are the most important factor to reach your goal and to win.
