“I don’t know what happened between the periods, between the players. There was definite leadership on the ice after what was not a real good first period from our team, not at the level we expect… we came back pretty hard, both with the room and the guys on the ice making a statement.”- Head Coach Dan Bylsma on the performance during the 6-3 win over Colorado on Tuesday night.

You're no longer invited to my birthday party, Cole. And we are gonna have pizza AND pony rides.
I loved the handshake lines your username were referring to... but fine. If I don't get invited, I'm going to throw an HF Party where we only talk about gap control. You won't be invited. Smell that? Yum... that smells like free pizza and the entertainment of neutralizing the opponent's speed with a great neural zone gap! You sure you want to miss out?
On the Dadsí Trip:
Itís absolutely amazing. You canít even begin to describe. It has to be the best organization in the world, it has to be.
On other dads giving him advice:
A couple of the other fathers have been through it before. They said youíll really get a feel for what the kids go through, what itís like being an NHL player. Iím not one to miss work. Iím a workaholic, but I wouldnít miss this for the world.
On seeing his son at work:
Itís amazing. We were talking with the dads here. It seems like yesterday we were in the locker rooms putting skates on these little guys. When you think of the percentages for a kid to make it this far, itís just short of a miracle. Itís all about hard work ethic. You have to give these kids a lot of credit.
On how proud he is:
To this day it seems surreal. Even watching him during practice. You canít even imagine how all these kids would make it this far. Who would ever have guessed. Itís just all a matter of work ethic, having a passion for something, a love for something, a desire and saying what one man can do, another man can do. You have to give the kids a lot of credit.
On a childhood story of Joe:
Joey, when he was born had two kidney problems. He had two surgeries. The one thing I think about all the time is after his second surgery my wife and I were in tears and the doctor said, ĎDonít feel so bad, your son doesnít know what heís going through. One thing Iíve found out about kids at this age that have this kind of surgery is they grow up to be tough, strong men.í I just keep thinking about that. The doctor was right.
Gotta feel happy for Joe's dad. He seems so excited.
