I couldn't find the actual quote, but to paraphrase:

Last year we played like clowns, this year we look like clowns... - (I think it was Dennis Kearns) Year one with the "Flying V" jerseys.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

”Siberian Husky. She’s all white. Beautiful blue eyes. That’s basically blonde girl with blue eyes. Your dream, man. My husky, basically, she’s a hot girl, man.”

”You know, I have many faces … masks. In home, I have one face. Public, I have other face. Uh … ahhhh, on ice I have different face. Day off I have four face. With you I have fifth face.”

“I think like, ‘And we have some problems here on the earth we worry about? Compared to like…nothing. Just be happy. Don’t worry be happy right now”

”I’m very into the universe, you know like how was created, you know, like, what is it, you know? Solar system is so humongous big, right? But if you see like our solar system and our galaxy on the side, you know, like, we’re so small you can never see it. Our galaxy is like huge, but if you see the big picture our galaxy (is) like a small tiny-like dot in the universe. “

It's an honour and a thrill and a privilege just to play in the NHL.
- Wayne Gretzky

Quotes from my coaches:
-Shoot,pass and kick some (insert word here)
-80 percent of the time the team that wants it the most wins the game
-This will be the last time you all play together on the same team so make the most of it (16 team end of the year tournament that we won)

I don't think so, it was during the playoffs I believe. He was benched for two periods after taking a stupid penalty.
Sig too big.
