Glen Hanlon Quotes (66 Quotes)


    That's the part I like. He didn't miss a single practice.

    I don't know why there is such a disparity. How do you give a tangible answer to that I've gone over everything. I've looked at all the statistics.

    The numbers that he has put up are astonishing. But he also likes pressure situations. In big games, he's at his best. That's special.

    Those are the types of situations where you get opportunities and you cash in on it. Who knows what that will be a springboard to He's got a great shot. He had an opportunity.

    I read things where he hasn't been sharp. He always seems to be in control against us. He doesn't seem to get himself in too much trouble. I don't know what else to say for a goalie except they stop the puck. What makes Dominik Hasek so good He stops the puck, that's it. The same thing with Luongo, the same with our guy.



    I respect the fact he's worked hard through this and been a good team player for us. Anytime there's been a skate or practice or meeting, whatever, he's given us 100 percent of his time and effort. But he's made it clear he wants to leave.

    He's played great down the stretch. He's started to get the opportunity to play and he's got some confidence and he's gone on from there.

    When you have not won here in eight years, it's not these guys' fault.

    We have some work ahead of us, but we're not focusing on our first exhibition game. We're focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel. We want to make sure all steps are taken before we get to the regular season.

    (The Rangers have) gone from a non-playoff team to a playoff team, and that would have to play a huge role.

    I don't think a right winger has scored five-on-five. We're just trying to find some chemistry.

    That was our best, likely our best overall game of the season. I thought we had more control of the puck than we have a lot of other nights, and so we ended up taking a lot less amount of penalties (than) we have gotten in the past.

    Our next step of improvement is to play a 20-game stretch where we go .500. If you play .500 for 20 games, that's a pretty good cross-section of the schedule. We haven't spent a lot of time focusing on those things. We've tried to get better and improve and work on our systems. Winning will be a byproduct of that.

    That caught me off guard a little bit. We're still waiting to get him better so he can play. It's been a long time he's week-to-week.

    It's a great play, a great goal by a great player.

    I don't know if you can expect your team to outwork people every single night. You can't. It's impossible.

    (Johnson's) falling in line with all of the players that have worked hard all year long. To be rewarded, it's good. That definitely by far was his best game. He was the main reason we won the hockey game.

    There's no way around what we're doing. We're not going to pick five guys off the waiver wire and two weeks from now we're stuck with 3 million worth of salaries and they're not going to be here. It just doesn't make any sense.

    It was a game where we didn't play very well. We had some penalties we took. ... It was 1-0, then it was 3-0 and that was the turning point in the game.

    If he's not one of the toughest players in the league, I don't know who is. Even in the third period I know one of the Carolina players was coming to hit him, and he just waited and waited and waited to take the hit and make the play.

    I really want to emphasize that we have good people here and we can never lose sight of that. Sometimes people focus on the things that went wrong and forget we have great players. I have told the players that I will be patient. ... I had a role model in my coach Pat Quinn when I was a player. He had a goal that he would never ruin anyone's outlook on the game.

    I'm not concerned. If he's healthy, he's healthy. If he's not, he's not. We'll see today.

    When we had an opportunity to get 70 points, we talked about winning four of our last six and we accomplished it. For the players, it's a heck of an accomplishment because there's no monetary gain getting to 70 points. It's just something they wanted to do as a group and they did it. I'm proud of my players.

    It was a great play, a great goal by a great player. Our guys are as happy as he is for his success.

    He give us the flexibility to do some things with our lineup, by him being able to play both defense and forward. He's got an unselfish personality. He's got some speed and one year he scored 14 goals, too. So there's some ability to shoot the puck and score.

    We are what we are. That was not an NHL lineup. We're playing with a lot of prospects. People get to see some future players, but these kids are a long way away from wearing the sweater for real and it showed up.

    I thought it was a good game until the fourth goal. That was kind of a backbreaker.

    The shots were 8-1 at one point and 13-3 and then we had a penalty and we don't kill it. I think that was the story of the game.

    I think the two people involved would likely wish it would just go away. This time it's not quite the same as it was the first time. There's special games for each player in the room. It's a close group, and I'm sure they would like to win for Alex, but it's just our next game.

    His test is going to be consistency. The great players do it for 10 years, and I'm sure that he will be able to handle that. He's just so all about hockey that I can't see why he wouldn't.

    I think our system can utilize his speed to the fullest. We like to apply pressure and get up the ice in a hurry, so I think this system is perfect for him. It's a fairly simple system -- it frees people to skate.

    He's a candidate but our standing doesn't help his cause. I can say this though. I haven't seen many guys more enthusiastic for the game.

    I think this is a good confidence booster for this young club. You know, before we went to Anaheim, I think we lost like eight straight (eight of nine), so it's been a long time coming. It's always good to win back-to-back games, especially on the road.

    I don't see any reason why not. I assume he's ready after watching practice.

    Here we are, we're out of the playoffs, and as coaches, we're all quite sad we didn't get the extra point. It's just another example of a team that's fairly resilient. For a team with 61 points, I think there's likely not a lot of teams like that you could attach that word to.

    We are what we are. I mean, it's not an NHL lineup. We're playing a lot of prospects. On the positive side some people got to see maybe some future players, but these kids are still a long way away from being ready to wear this sweater for real.

    He tries this way in practice, he tries this way in Game 1, and he's trying this way now. He's more concerned about winning games and winning the Stanley Cup.

    Absolutely. If they have nagging injuries and do something to irritate them, you're going to knock them back another week and a half. They've already have a week and a half of recovery so instead of setting it back, we're way ahead.

    He finished the game and looked like he had no problem. When he took his gloves off, it didn't look like he was all bandaged up or anything. My answer always is If he's injured and can't play, I'll deal with it. If not, I don't want to occupy my time with things that haven't happened. I don't want to create problems for myself.

    They work so hard every night, and to go eight games without a win is difficult. For them to come out and to play that hard and play that well is a testament to the character in the room.

    Our penalty killing was as good as it's been in a long time.

    We battled hard. Physically, I thought we controlled that part of the game. We had chances at the end -- we had two whacks at a puck a few feet from the goal line -- but it came down to special teams again. Most of our problems this year have come on the power play.

    Did I hear a whistle before the puck went in the net No, of course not. The interpretation of the rule was explained to me and I don't agree with it.

    Good hockey game in the sense that there was good physical play in it and to see a good scrap or two is pretty exciting. Nobody left after the first one, did they

    Since I've been here we've tried not to make a point of it. We just want them to be part of the solution and not look back.
