This is obviously the most important time of year. As a player, this is when you like to play ... and when you want to be on top of your game. I think on the ice is where (the game) is played. We all know they're a great team and they've got a lot of power. We'll respect that team but we'll have to do what we do best and concentrate on our team.
It's really tough because there's just so much traffic in front of the net now. There were a few times when Ottawa had guys in the crease and the referees didn't call it. I heard a few warnings after the whistle, but if that's not going to be enough, the refs are going to have to be stricter about guys crashing the net.
It was a dream come true playing here, I had a great time. The fans, teammates, everything was fun. I played for 10 years almost, which is really good, but now it's a new start. I'm going to be part of a another great organization and I'm really pleased. It's a nice city and I know a lot of the players. It's a new beginning and I only have good things to say about Montreal.
