On playing for the Leafs: "This is definitely a dream come true. When I was a kid watching Hockey
Night in Canada it was one of my favorite teams and definitely my mom's favorite team. So she's very excited."
On wearing his familiar number 20: "I didn't know it was going to be there or not but when I found
out it definitely put a smile on my face."
On his relationship with Pat Quinn and what that meant to joining the Leafs: "They contacted me almost
right away and that made me feel really good because I wanted to be on a team that respects me and wants me. Pat Quinn
and I had a good relationship in Salt Lake. Of course I wanted to play and be the guy in net but it didn't work out
that way and for me I was just happy to be on the team to represent my country in the Olympics."
On changing his style in net: "I think when I first started in the league I probably went down a lot
too much, went out of the net too far, got caught wandering a lot because I played the puck a lot. I think I stand up
a little bit more and maybe a little bit more conservative when I play the puck."
On his fitness level: "I've always been physically fit. I have a really good background in that
being a track and doing some triathlons. I've always had that background and it's really helped me over the years."
On his manner in the dressing room: "I'm not really a vocal guy. I try to lead by example.
Sometimes being a little quiet can be misunderstood but I'm not too worried about it. I'll try to say things when something
should be said."
On his relationship with legendary Russian goalie Vladislav Tretiak: "My relationship with him started
when I was a rookie in Chicago in 1989-90. Mike Keenan hired Vlady as a goalie coach and I started working with him
that summer. He has goalie schools across the country. He has a school here in Toronto which I'll be attending
in August. It always helps me get ready for training camp. He's helped my game out tremendously right from the
start, he's a class guy and will help anybody. I can't say enough for how much he's helped me."
