Martin Brodeur
[Starting for the Canadian Olympic team has given Martin Brodeur a distinct advantage. He was the first goalie to get the NHL's newly legislated smaller pads, pants, and other gear.] Goalies that like to react to pucks won't have a problem, ... Those goalies that block shots instead of stopping shots, will find it's going to be a little tougher for them, especially in close.

I'm sure it's not where everybody thought we'd be. Hopefully, the suicide game will be good for us. A lot of times it brings out the best in players. We need these players to step up and get us through the next game.

The league is almost treating us like kids. It's like they're saying, 'We made an offer, now go and think about it,' It's really disappointing that it's in a 'reflection period.' It's not fair that they don't try harder. We, as players, made a good effort with the concessions we gave. If [the sides] started talking, something might happen.

I played 25 minutes and 35 minutes in two games. I shouldn't be tired. I'm tired of getting scored on.

It was crazy. There were Japanese people all over him. It was unbelievable. When we arrived in Tokyo, they didn't think about it. They didn't think we were going to come in and people would flip out for Wayne Gretzky. Shayne Corson almost took him on his back and had to walk him to the bus because people were all over him. He couldn't do anything.

My skate got caught and I twisted it. I heard it twist and I couldn't get up. All my body weight fell on it. I had to be really hurt to leave the game. We were still in the game at that point.

It's going to happen. You can't go on all your life and beat up on somebody. They're going to retaliate sometimes. They're a different team than what they were a few years back.

He's been always really good against us. I don't remember the last time (the Devils' scored five goals on Hasek). I'm sure we did it, but I'm not sure when. We had so many opportunities tonight early in the game and he still made some great saves.

People like the glamour and the glamour with Scotty is his hits. That's what they remember. They don't want to talk about him taking the puck away from Jaromir Jagr with one hand or anything like that.

I think there was a big transition in Canada, having younger guys being part of Team Canada now. I think it's nice we had a chance to perform with each other. At least you don't come in and it's a brand-new atmosphere. Now Team Canada has been doing these pre-Olympic training camps in the summer also, where we got together. I think everybody's really anxious to see each other again.

If he doesn't go, people will say that means it's true and that's why he' not going. So, how do you deal with it? He's always been a gentleman about everything and he's always going to put what's best for the team first, so I don't think this is going to be any different.

We didn't give them our best game, that's for sure. We turned the puck over, made a lot of mistakes. (But) Rick played tremendous. He made the saves when he needed too.

It's a big win, regardless of the shutout. We needed to get back on track. We had a great power play and penalty kill, two things that cost us at the Garden. We're paying attention defensively.

For us defensively, we take a lot of pride in it. This year it's a little different because of the circumstances of the CBA. There are no bonuses. The guys are definitely out for just pride and feeding off that performance to move on to the next game.

The distractions that people think we're gonna have, that's bogus for most of the guys on the team. This is such a great time for all of us. It doesn't concern me or any of my teammates.

To me, he's one of the top goaltenders in the league and he's a big reason why the Predators are in the situation they are right now. He beat me at the World Championship, and even though there wasn't as much talent there as there will be at the Olympics, he's brought his game to the level of guys that have been around the league for a long time.
