Game 7
“A lot of guys said that they respect everything that I’ve done in my career. It was a pleasure to play against them and hear all the classy things. Obviously, I know those guys very well. Even during the lockout we were skating together and I’ve been playing golf with those guys. There is a lot of respect between us. Even though we compete so hard and it’s a war out there, but after all when it’s over we’re all good buddies. That’s why this game is so special, a lot of class. That’s what I’m going to miss – these guys and this lifestyle. There is nothing like it.”
