Andrew Ladd says the players aren't worried about the possibility of losing paycheques: "I've said before that I think we knew this was going to be their play in the negotiation, waiting until we missed games. Unfortunately, we saw this coming and now we're just kind of in the wait-and-see mode and hopefully they step up and actually start negotiating." [WFP]
Dustin Byfuglien is hoping for a Stanley Cup playoff run with the Jets' in the near future: "Even if we are a bottom-seed team, you just never know what can happen — just look at L.A.. Most of our guys don’t have playoff experience. It’s a whole different game. It’s about who is ready to work and who is going to work every night. That’s what it comes down to. The level and the pace is so much higher than a regular-season game. It just makes the game that much better." [Winnipeg Sun]
