"I remember being on the ice and not wanting to be there. I was so nervous. I can understand what the young players are going through in this tournament; it's nerve-racking." -- Ryan Ellis on playing in the 2009 WJC

Other than the Olympics, this is the next prestigious ice hockey tournament in the world. And we have the fortune to be hosting it here in Buffalo." -- Michael Gilbert, Sabres Director of Public Relations
