"We choked"
-Markus Naslund

Don't know why people gave him a hard time for this. They DID choke. At least he didn't beat around the bush.

Kevin Bieksa trolling idiot Fox Sports reporter Mike Dunsmore who actually thinks he's interviewing Ryan Kesler.

Dunsmore...... "Hockey's big with nicknames. What's your nickname Ryan?"

Bieksa ..... "Guzzler".

I don't why he's diving, there's no ref - Kevin Bieksa referring to Roberto Luongo going down after being clipped in practice by a high stick
We can't win at home and we can't win on the road. My main failing as a coach is that I can't think of anywhere else to play - Harry Neale

Bieksa on John Scott:

"What do you do when a guy that's 6'8" and can't skate asks you to fight? You say no, go around him and score a goal."

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Favorite Bieksa quotes:

(on Chara): He's big. I think you know that.

(on Tanev's great overall play in [I'm pretty sure] game 5 of the SCF): he was so calm and cool out there. He could've played with a cigarette in his mouth.

(Start of an interview): I'm running for mayor of Grimsby, so everything I say needs to be politically correct.

In 2010 Van won the series against the Kings with that amazing save on smyth. After the game Scott Oake interviewed Luongo and asked him about the save, the series, and what he thought. he replied:

Marchand on Backstrom:

"He was trying to be sneaky and do a cheap shot, The ref caught him and that's all that matters."

(Sounds like Marchand is talking about himself :P)

Ehrhoff:

"My goal is to win the Stanley Cup, and after the offer I received from Buffalo, I believe this is the best place to make it happen.”

Teemu Selanne about the All-Star Game:

"Winning is always fun, but the car is more important."

Patrick Roy on his shot attempt at the Oilers empty net:

"I guess they respect my shot because they were all ready at the blue line."

Brian Burke:

"Hockey is a man's game. The team with the most real men wins."

(too bad he forgot how to build a team)

Mikhail Grabovski:


"I think he is not Belarussian now, he is French because I never fight with Belarussian guys," Grabovski said. "I don't know why he wants to fight with me. If he wants to fight, we'll go in the street and every minute of every day I'll wait for him and we'll fight."

"I tell you, I scared only of my wife when she slap me like in the face sometimes, you know, when I'm bad."




In the Senators' first season, they got destroyed by Pittsburgh on the road. On one goal, Ken Hammond made a horrid pass that was intercepted by Kevin Stevens, who passed it to a wide open Joe Mullen and beat Peter Sidorkiewicz quite handily. After the game Hammond told reporters "Look, if I knew Mullen was open, I would have never passed it to Stevens."
