Every day is a great day for hockey.
When it comes to hockey, it's been in my blood since I was 3 or 4 years old. I love coaching the kids, especially at that level.
I think that with a lot of hard work and dedication, I feel that I could be the best in the world. I'm still only 35 years old... I have a fresh start physically and mentally, and I feel that I can achieve my goal to be the best again.
Since the beginning, I always loved the game. When you grow up in Montreal, one day you want to be a professional hockey player. When I was six or seven, I knew that was what I wanted.
Once I'm at the arena with the guys in the dressing room, and in the bus, and on the plane, I'm a player. And I sit in the back with the players and I play cards and try to take their money.
When I'm able to see the ice ahead of time when I get the puck, I'm able to make some pretty good plays.
We, as a league, must do a better job of protecting the integrity of the game and the safety of our players.
I think people in Montreal smoke a lot, and I used to smoke when I was 17-18, and just picked it up when I was playing juniors. But I think I stopped when I was 22, which was a big decision in my life.
One thing I hate is people screaming at me. If you want me to do something, talk to me.
When someone screams at me to hurry up, I slow down.
A month before the season I stop putting ketchup on my french fries.
Hockey is a tough, physical game, and it always should be.
I've gone through back surgery a couple times, and of course, my radiation treatments for six weeks got me to the point where I was not able to play at the level that I was accustomed to.
A month before the season, I don't order fries with my club sandwich.
For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a professional hockey player.
