Traded to Chicago by San Jose for Chicago's 5th round choice (Michael Pinc) in 2000 Entry Draft, August 23, 1999.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
