"Right now it's about us. Obviously we have to know their tendencies and things we have to be aware of but whether we're defending against Crosby, or Malkin, or Neal or any of these guys we're going to have our hands full."
"I think that people are overlooking how good their other players are. If you look down their roster they got Kennedy on their third line and their fourth line is one of the good fourth lines in the league with Asham and Adams. They're big boys. They got guys like Kunitz..so to me when I look at their lineup they got speed, they got grit, they got smarts on all four lines. They're coming at you every time they're on the ice. They're dedicated, they've won before, and most of their players have won there before, and it carries on. They're well coached, they got outstanding defensemen, probably the most difficult defensemen to forecheck in the league, and their goaltender's good. So there's not many flaws in there.''
"Just worry about our agenda, and that's it. I didn't even think about (Crosby not playing), to be honest, because we look at them as one of the best teams in the league right now. They are playing really well right now, they have some guys who have stepped up and played well. We are preparing like they are one of the top teams in the east, which they are, and for us to be in the game we are going to have to play solid defensively and that's the structure for us."
LET'S GO BOLTS!

It's inadvertently funny. (speaking about Malone) "If he plays tommorrow, y'know, it's great for hockey."
The context is the key here. This is a game where the media was asking about Crosby, and if he'd play. The connotation I think was being implied is very different, but that's sort of the way I heard it.
"Their fort line is one of the good fort lines in the league."
