QUOTES:
"It's pretty interchangeable. We've got a lot of guys who are the same and play the same. They are all fast and have skill. I don't think it matters who plays with who as long as everyone believes in the concepts the coaches are teaching and we stick to that." - Goaltender Jason LaBarbera (October 19, 2003)
