"I've always been known as a team guy, and I feel real bad

"On something like that, you're
disappointed. It doesn't matter who it is."
"I think that's just as bad as what Marty McSorley did to
[Donald] Brashear. ... You can't

"Let's just see if Colin Campbell finally does something about
this stuff and doesn't give him three games like he gave that other
meathead from New Jersey."
