This morning there was media availability for Jon Cooper, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point, Steven Stamkos, and other important folk, and the best media quotes are below.

Jon Cooper

All-star coach has eyes on top prize. “Maybe the first couple minutes of the 3-on-3s will be wide-open but then the players will dig in once it gets down to the end.

Vasilevskiy and Kucherov

Brayden Point is precious

Steven Stamkos

How Steven Stamkos became Mr. Tampa. “To be one of the elder statesmen of the team, it’s pretty surreal,” Stamkos said. “To just look around and see some of those young guys coming up and you can appreciate what they’re doing and how they’re feeling.
