Giroux's pretty good

One teammate on Claude Giroux during last week's two wins over Washington: "He just would not let us lose to those guys."

Recommendation: Bob remains as locked in as any goalie in the league, and if the ragtag Blue Jackets do end up squeaking into the postseason he may just deserve Hart Trophy as well as Vezina attention.

Regarding the trade bringing Zybnek Michalek back to Phoenix from Pittsburgh - "Phoenix general manager Don Maloney said. "We know what he is, so we were thrilled. ... We looked at ‘Z' playing with a young player like Oliver Ekman-Larsson as a terrific combo to matchup against the best players in the West."

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.

"I have way more respect for the game than that. People always say, if Wayne Gretzky can be traded, anyone can be traded. To suggest I'd deliberately try to hold one up is an absolute joke. "I love my teammates in Philadelphia. Management has treated me extremely well. Honestly, I'm the type of person that, if a team did not want me here, I would not want to be here. I certainly would not hold anything up."

-- James van Riemsdyk on the rumors surrounding him this week, as told to the Daily News
