"Just being a part of that culture and learning a lot from guys like Lidstrom and Zetterberg and Chelios and Draper and all those guys about how to win...All of those things were invaluable as far as my career goes.” - Brad Stuart
"I love Stuey...We miss him. You're always going to miss the player,but you miss him as a man much more. He's a great person and we appreciate what he did for us.” - Mike Babcock
Jonas Gustavsson will make his first start a Red Wing tonight.
"It's a real good opportunity for him. We need a win on the road and he's capable of doing that so get in there and play like you can.” - Mike Babcock
"I'm really excited. I'm always nervous before I play, but not to the point where it's a bad thing. I like to feel that nervousness.” - Jonas Gustavsson
"I was happy with our game last night...I liked the fact that the D was big. They could skate and they went back and got pucks and paid the price to move it and get it out.” - Mike Babcock
