“I know I’m still a good player and I’m not going to worry about that. It’s just been a tough go. It’s going to be a big summer for me. I had the worst year of my career as far as points go this season. Now I need to come back and have a good year.”
“I still think that the Battle of Alberta is the best in hockey since I’ve played in most of those games. I’ve really only had a chance to face Boston and Toronto a couple of times since I got to Montreal. I’m sure it won’t take too long for me to start hating the guys from other teams here.

The second bit of news is, well, it isn't really news at all. However, it's an interview with PK Subban, in which...
P.K. Subban's typical offseason includes training, preparing, resting and eating an entire cow. Yes, the Canadiens defenseman will see your summer grilling habits and do you one better, eating steak sometimes multiple times a day as part of his offseason nutrition program. "I eat a lot of protein -- steak in the morning, steak in the afternoon, fish, chicken," Subban...
For sure the initial shock of Brandon Prust signing with Montreal has worn off for Michael Del Zotto, but it appears that he has not moved on. Del Zotto was in Canada golfing with Prusty and spoke with The Score about a potential long-distance relationship between the two.
