Conference call transcript with Hatcher, Drury and Briere

DANIEL BRIERE, Buffalo Sabres
CHRIS DRURY, Buffalo Sabres
DERIAN HATCHER, Philadelphia Flyers
April 20, 2006

DAVID KEON: Good afternoon, everyone. I'm David Keon of the National Hockey League's public relations department. I'd like to welcome you to the fourth of eight conference calls being conducted this afternoon as we prepare for the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

This call we are featuring Series D between the Buffalo Sabres and the Philadelphia Flyers. The two teams will open their series on Saturday at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo at 7 p.m. eastern time on OLN and TSN.

With us we have Buffalo co-captains Daniel Briere and Chris Drury. Daniel finished the season with 25 goals, 33 assists for 58 points in 48 games played, while Chris tallied 30 goals and 37 assists for 67 points in 81 games played. From the Flyers we have their captain, Derian Hatcher, who scored 4 goals and 13 assists for 17 points in 77 games this season.

Again we thank the three of them for joining us to answer your questions. We'll open it up for questions.

Q: Chris, you have played in enough of these playoffs where there always seems to be two or three teams considered the favorites. Can you remember any year where it seems like seeds 1 through 16 thinks they have a good shot of going all the way?

CHRIS DRURY: Nothing like this. I think you saw it throughout the year exactly how tight the races were down the stretch, divisions, conferences, right down to the last night. I think it's true, any team could get out in front and win this thing.

Q: Derian?

DERIAN HATCHER: I couldn't agree more. I think this year in both divisions, if you look, both conferences, really every team going in thinks they have a shot. It wouldn't surprise me. Whoever ends up to be in the Stanley Cup Final, it really wouldn't surprise me.

Since when did Dave Keon work for the NHL?

I always thought he stayed away from the game because of what happened with the Leafs...maybe he just disassociates himself with the Leafs?
