Marty St. Louis9/11/14 | 6:39PM: Marty St. Louis was a guest on TSN 1040 Vancouver yesterday as well as TSN1260 Edmonton:

TSN 1040:

  •  “when you are young you dream about the NHL and once you get there you start to understand what is possible and to set your goals high. For me it was a progression. I set goals every year and they get higher and higher and I have been happy I have been able to maintain the level I have been at. I just wanted to play in the league. I had a chance to win a cup, a scoring title and these aren’t things that you dream about, you dream about getting a jersey and just playing in the league.”
