How Awesome Is This Quote?

July 1, 2008

Paul Gaustad in today’s Buffalo News (via John Vogl)

“I’m pretty speechless that I have a four-year deal in the National Hockey League,” Gaustad said by phone from Oregon. “I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to be back in Buffalo. It’s just a great place to play. I really do think we have a chance to win, and that’s a big factor for me.”

Its not that often you hear a player say that they’re speechless about having a multi-year deal. And its not that often that you hear someone excited about being in Buffalo. Its a nice change from the “gimmegimmegimme” you hear around contract time.
