"Losing the 2001 Stanley Cup. It was in Game 7 to Colorado. We [the Devils] had a 3-2 lead going back to New Jersey and we lost. It was a terrible feeling."

"Early in my career I saw a sign that said, 'Niedermayer - dead' and I had to ask my teammates what was going on. I'd never seen the movie. I still haven't watched it front to back."
