"Whether we're trying something that is a popular idea or an unpopular idea, all of it is done to just give us more information. This is all about us being proactive and not reactive. The game has never been better, but we don't want to rest." -- Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's Senior Vice President of Player Safety and Hockey Operations
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
