Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune was asking this week about the rivalry between the Vancouver Canucks and the Chicago Blackhawks. “That’s a team we dislike a lot,” volunteered Vancouver’s Alexandre Burrows. Duncan Keith, from Chicago said: “I don’t dislike anybody I play against. I don’t have a problem.”
“I don’t know,” said one of the Vancouver goaltenders, Roberto Luongo. “I just stop the puck, man.”
The other, Cory Schneider denied he was feeling sorry for himself. “I don’t cry myself to sleep at night,” he told some reporters.
“You run out of clichés to say to the guys, obviously,” said Washington’s coach, Adam Oates.
About the New Jersey Devils, Marc Staal of the New York Rangers said, “I can’t stand losing to them.”
