A self scouting report:
"I'm a physical player that needs to play that way to create offensive chances. I've always been a guy who has stood up for himself and my teammates."

On his early hockey career:
"I started playing hockey when I was four or five, and played on a team when I was that young. Later, I got drafted to the Ottawa 67's in the OHL and from the there got traded to the Greyhounds of the OHL. I got drafted by the Flyers in 1990 and it's been great from there."

On his hockey coaches:
"I've had a lot of great coaches. I can't pick just one as my most influential. It's no secret that Ted (Nolan) helped me a lot in Juniors, so through Juniors it would have to be him. It's great to be back playing under him again. In the NHL, I've had a lot of different coaches who have helped me in different ways."

On the best leaders he's played with:
"There are two guys that come to mind. The first would be Steve Konowalchuk who I played with for a long time. Steve's everyday habits were great to see. For young players he's the type of guy you want around. The other would be Mark Messier who I played with on the Rangers. Mark to me is the ultimate leader. The way he carries himself and the way he makes people feel around the rink is awesome."
