It’s important for kids to have role models. Just to show that goals are reachable. No matter how far you are, how remote you are, you still have an opportunity if you work hard enough. I first realised I was a role model when I came home for the first time after winning the World Juniors and the Calder cup. I went home and I saw all the kids at our community hall and they all came to see the medal and the trophy. That was the first time I realised it. - Carey Price
“There were lots of news about me in the papers when I retired because it was a pretty big headline in Sweden. One day, I got a letter from the Sedins - and a stick - on the office of my team, Brynas.

He’s a tremendous player and it will be good for him to get a chance to win the Cup in Pittsburgh. It will also be good for us not playing against him.

Roberto Luongo: Most of the time they don't even look at each other and they know where they are on the ice.
Alex Burrows: They communicate like dolphins, first of all.

He actually likes to chirp a little bit, but he does it quietly. He usually lets people do it for him — he’ll say it in my ear and I’ll just throw it out there — or he’ll say it to Danny and he’ll throw it out there. Or maybe they’re chirping me and I’m just the target.
