"It's our first act. We've got a long way to go and I'm not going to mortgage the future just to get a little early success. Success for me is being a Stanley Cup winner and contender for a lot of years to come. ... We are on the right track and I feel really good about our future as well."
-- Panthers' GM Dale Tallon
"In the early ages I got made fun of for being so young. Now being 28, I'm sure I'll get some 7-year-old cards." -- Cam Ward
"Anytime you have a team this good and they want to bring you in to see if there's a fit for you and you can help out, you appreciate it. I feel fortunate coming in here." -- Johnny Oduya
I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
