Richards said that he has been very impressed with the attention the Blackhawks have in Chicago. Comparing it to New York, Richards said that when the Rangers are winning they get a lot of attention but “when it’s over, it’s over.” (Blackhawks)
Marty St. Louis was asked if the Rangers deep playoff run and all the personal issues he had to deal with accelerated the process of him feeling like a Ranger.
St. Louis said that the playoffs really helped him get close to his teammates and the fans and “scoring the winner in OT at MSG against Montreal, which is a team that I idolized growing up and my dad was in the stands. That was an unbelievable memory for me….to do that at MSG. (Rangers)

Adam McQuaid said that Hunwick was a player who brought a lot of different things to the Bruins and is an “excellent skater” and PP guy.
His average career Corsi number is 48.3% (HR) and has averaged 18:07 per game.
Joe Sacco, Hunwick’s former coach in Colorado, said that he brings an “outstanding” attitude to the rink, is a “consummate pro and is always preparing for when he will get his opportunity. (Denver Post)
On Hunwick, Hockey Forecaster’s 2013-14 guide said, “Although he’s not very big, and his puck moving skills at other levels have yet to manifest in the NHL, Hunwick led all Colorado rearguards in total ice time. He kills penalties well thanks to his poise, as well as his smart positioning. Credited with 40 hits and 59 blocked shots in 2013, his value is in his intangibles.”
