Off Day, May 17 quotes: Braydon Coburn

NHL.com @NHL

Q.  We keep hearing that you're not feeling that well, and that's why there's been this uncertainty.  Do you have concussion symptoms, and if so, what are they?

BRAYDON COBURN:  Right now, I'm just kind of dealing with some things with the eye and stuff like that.  So every day it's been getting better.  Tomorrow we're reevaluating it again.

Q.  Do you think you'll play tomorrow?

BRAYDON COBURN:  Yeah, I think there's a good chance.

Q.  What would change that if you didn't?

BRAYDON COBURN:  You know, if I don't feel like I'm able to play and react to the play like I did it before.

Q.  Can you talk about your practice today?  How things went?  How you felt during the practice?  Are there any limitations?

BRAYDON COBURN:  Nope, no limitations.  Everything felt pretty good.  Felt like I've been off the ice for a couple of days.  Wearing the visor is a little bit of an adjustment as well.  But it's something I'm going to have to do right now.

Q.  Everybody knows you want to play, but how much pressure, given the situation, given the kind of hockey players and what they play through at this time of the year, does that add to your situation and your desire to get out there?

BRAYDON COBURN:  Well, it's an important time of the year.  But I think that -- I don't think they put me out there if they didn't feel that I would be able to contribute and felt well and I wouldn't put myself in that situation either.

Q.  In terms of your depth perception, is that becoming more and more of an improvement and how much will that add to play tomorrow?

BRAYDON COBURN:  I don't know.  It's getting better every day.  Yeah, I don't think it's limiting me at all.  So I think it's getting better.

Q.  I know we talked about this earlier, but when you have seen the doctor, what have they told you about your eye?  I mean, is there any kind of damage to actually itself or can you kind of fill us in on what that status is?

BRAYDON COBURN:  The status is it's improving and getting better, and it will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
