In speaking with Larry Brooks of the NY Post, Quinn added, "we need guys who are committed to working each day to be at their best. If a guy didn't have his best year last year, we need him to be better this year. That's the way we're going to get back to being successful." (NY Post)
Earlier in the offseason, Quinn said "if everyone can get 5-10% better you are going to have a big improvement and a much better hockey team. I don't want to go Bill Belichick on you, but if you get dialed in and focused on the moment, get better on a daily basis and create an environment where people want to come to the rink, I think you have a chance."
