Comments from the Teleconference:

– “For me it was virtually a no brainer. This is where I want to be. I believe we have what it takes to get to next level”

–  “I’m thrilled to have avoided the process (arbitration)”

– “I think I put more pressure on myself. Having that vote of confidence, I am type of person who will run with it.

– “My impression was they wanted me to be a Jet long term and I also wanted to be a Jet long term”

– (On potentially representing the US in Sochi): “It is a huge honour” (although he might have used honor).

– (On new additions): “I think they are great additions. Can never discount adding a Stanley Cup champion to your team”.

– (On keeping in touch with team mates during negotiations): “We were all in the same boat. Wanting to keep Wpg as long term”.

Back in business on Tuesday as the Jets welcome former bench boss Paul Maurice and the Panthers to town.

The Moose have another day of practice.
