Carpiniello also has quotes from Henrik Lundqvist on the upcoming season.
Rick Carpiniello at Ranger Rants has numerous quotes from John Tortorella's press conference including this one on whether he thinks this team is better than last year's...
“I do. I do. I’m not going to make predictions. I’m not in that part of the business. I just go on as I’ve been talking about the whole camp: I think the group is together, I think we’re familiar. I think the addition of an experienced backup goalie; Frolov, who we’re hoping will score some goals and help Gabby; and Stepan as stepped up; just some additions there—Fedotenko who can give me some utility work.
“And again, the bottom line is that the kids are intact. They’re still here and they’re going to improve as we go along. That’s where I see, I think, we’ll improve as a hockey club.”...i'm with Torts here. This team is, in my opinion, dramatically better than last year's. Now that doesn't mean they're playoff bound because I feel a few other non-playoff teams have gotten better as well but I think we should be in for an exciting season.
