These are some quick quotes from a brief conference call with Glen Sather. It just ended. Not a lot more than this:
“Antropov is a big winger or center-iceman and he’ll help us in the goal scoring department.
“Morris gives is a bit more bite on the back end. He can play a little bit of offense and defense, and he’s an aggressive defensman.”
“Antropov is certainly a guy whos had a lot of power play time. Morris is a smart player who has had a history of playing on the power play.”
“I think it’s a little early to tell how they’re going to perform here or (if they will be re-signed). But I’m fairly optimistic (they can be signed).”
On Prucha: “I like Prucha too. He was certainly given an opportunity (in Phoenix), but we needed to get some size on the power play and (Antropov does that).”
On the lack of trades across the league:
“So many people are in the (playoff) hunt. It doesn’t seem there were that many guys willing to sell today.”
“We tried to add (grit) for sure. I wanted to get some scoring, some size, some grit and some speed. We’ve done that.”
Voros is still on the NHL roster.
On Tortorella’s feeling on the trades:
“He likes them. He thinks we’ve helped our team immensely.”
