    • Luc Robitaille: We've watched the TV and seen everything that has happened in New Orleans... But this has affected [many areas]. I have seen photos, and it is horrible all around. There is not a place left standing.

    • Luc Robitaille: I told (a team executive), 'You guys owe me big on this one. That's a lot of freakin' jerseys.'
