THEY SAID IT
"It's hard to believe. It's like a big energy boost for the whole team. He's a world-class player, one of the best in the league, and I can't wait to play with him.'' -- Predators captain Kimmo Timonen, on Nashville acquiring Peter Forsberg.
"Excitement isn't a big enough word to describe what we're feeling. Everyone is so pumped up. He's one of the best — if not the best — players in the world, and to add him to our team is pretty special.'' - Paul Kariya
Fyi...Foppa didn't play in tonight's Preds' 1-0 defeat at St. Louis. Andy Murray's hardworking Blues got 19 Manny Legace saves and ex-Devil Bill Guerin's team-leading 26th (a highlight reel goal reminiscent of No.66) to register points 56 and 57 against the Western Conference leaders.
