"Every team is in a different situation. They have their own goals and their own idea how they’re going to get there. Guy and his staff want to get to know their players, not just the ones that are on the team already but they want to work with our young players too. There’s a lot of work to be done. Having said that, we want to be a good team this year too and want to do everything we can to pick the best players to make this team the best we can put on the ice."

Steve Yzerman -- commenting on building this year's team
