(On the season...) We did not accomplish what we set out to, what we were capable of, at the same time we had a franchise record 103 points, we were successful in eliminating Ottawa. We understand the expectations are justified we had a team capable of getting it all done, we failed to do so, we need to improve on that. Make no mistake we had a team capable of winning the Cup, there's no question, not just competing for it, we had a real diverse group of players and capabilites, a number of acquisitions would not fit that category, but these players that were brought in, a lot of them had proven that they were capable winners in this league over time, and that age didn't beat us. We didn't accomplish what we set out to do, there will be one team that gets to say they did what they set out to do. (On Pat Quinn's Future...) Pat will be back, he's our coach, and his record speaks for itself, this club is over the past 6, 7 years over the time he's been coaching are third in the league in playoff rounds won, he has well over 600 career coaching victories, franchise record 103 points this season, knocked out Ottawa, failed to advance past Philadelphia but all-in-all a strong season for us. We've got a good group in place, and we plan on moving forward with the group we have. Pat has a deal through this season, and hopefully beyond it. (On the upcoming Summer...) It will be a busy Summer, absolutely, but I'm not sure that's atypical of any other years, there are deadlines to be met, deals to be made, decisions to be done, preparing for the draft, qualifying offers.
