“I'll be ready to play tomorrow...I needed another hard skate and that's what we just finished...I really wanted to play today, but I needed to skate hard with Tom (Renney).”
- Todd Bertuzzi

“I can't come in and not be ready to play a full 60 and help out, contribute, be big down low, finish my checks... 
I just need to go out and keep it simple.”
