- "we are all tuned into the same show, we all know what is going on and what we have to do and try to do the right thing. We've been through this a few times, it's not easy, he will have a lot of work ahead of him and if we anticipate what will happen, last night there were 25 scouts in the building. There will be lots of decisions to make and we can't make them here and we can't announce them here today. Besides, we still might make the playoffs."
- Are the playoffs realistic, "who would have thought 12 games ago that we would be out of the playoffs today. Things happen and it's an evolving situation with how the team has played and the injuries we have had. It's not an excuse because the guys have come in and need to play better, it hasn't happened. We have to look to the future."
- Did you have to sell it to Dolan, "we certainly discussed it, with scouts and with everyone. We are all onboard."
