They said it
"I think I was playing really good for myself. I was expecting someday I'm going to get a callup, so I'm happy." -- Canucks forward Nikolay Goldobin on being promoted from Utica of the American Hockey League on Sunday
"I think Travis (Green) has done a good job getting them all on the same page. As a team, they work hard and they've got plenty of youth and skill. I don't call anybody a surprise in this league because there's a lot of talent and everybody can play, but they've played great and they've played consistent. They've lost some tough ones, so I think they're a heck of a team and they're going to be fighting for the playoffs as far as I'm concerned." -- Islanders coach Doug Weight on the Canucks
