"The Islanders are a talented, talented team, they improved their back end, they're better in net, and they've always had good talent up-front; They got a good hockey club, it should be lots of fun." - Mike Babcock
"We've got to get on the inside a lot more, throw more pucks at the net, we haven't had many shots on net as of late, and we've got to get more traffic in front of the net." - Niklas Kronwall
