Every guy I've ever met loves John Gallant, except the guys who have to play against him. He's the most soft-spoken, wonderful guy you could ever meet.
It's great, because the building is only 2 years old. It was damaged by the big snowstorm (in spring 2003) and rebuilt, so this is perfect.
Pat is a champion and a leader and he brings great experience to our team. He's consistent, he's tough and he's simply one of the best defenders ever to play in this league.
Every team Rich has been a part of has been successful. We are thrilled to add a player with his experience and we know his commitment to winning will rub off on our younger players.
We knew that Arizona was interested in Matt, but Dan Carey was easily the next-best choice. I think (Brown and Carey) are very comparable as players. They're both solid left-handers with big potential to score.
