On Luc's best NHL memories
"Stepping on the ice for the first time and saying I am in the NHL and I am a part of this group, that was something special. Winning the Cup, that is something no one can take away from you. It was fortunate for me that I won it after I played 16 years, if I would have won it my first year it would have been amazing, but I don't know if I would have realized the impact it would have on my life. When I won after 16 years it was amazing, I never forgot, I made sure I enjoyed every moment."
On the Kings
"For us, we are excited where we are at. The entire hockey world is talking about our organization. we have a lot of great young kids, we were the second or third youngest team throughout the season.
"Every player that plays on our team, their goal should be to win the Stanley Cup."
"When you play sports it is about winning, it is always about winning."
