You know what, you hear about it when you play against the Flyers, how they take care of their alumni, and I'm witnessing it first-hand. They've been unbelievable. As a hockey player, we all know that it's hard to retire, and you have those worries, 'what are you gonna do', y'know? 'What am I gonna do?' Those guys really embraced me, they're really taking care of me, this is great. I can't thank them enough.
— Ian Laperriere on Wednesday's edition of Marek vs. Wyshynski (interview starts at the 37-minute mark, that quote around the 44-minute mark). Good interview all-around, and a quick reminder for all of us, myself included, that even if we're not the biggest fans of everything Ed Snider does, there are still a lot of great things that he does for this organization and its players.
