-Was surprised by the trade because of his injury. Happy to be joining the Avalanche.
-Is walking without crutches and working out to come back from the injury. Doesn't know when he'll start skating, hoping it's within a week or so. Hopes to be back a couple of games before the playoffs but will have to listen to the doctors.
-Is used to the Roy comparisons because he's been hearing them since he got drafted by Montreal.
-Says he's had a tough year but his dedication and work ethic has never wavered.
-Loves coming to an organization that's (ahem) committed to winning it all every year. Is excited to be on a team with Sakic & Blake.
Pretty standard stuff. Sandy Clough needs to either cut to the chase when interviewing someone or they need to let someone else handle interviews. Jesus, he gets so long-winded in his questions that the people he interviews have to get annoyed wondering if they're ever going to get to jump in and answer.
