Q: Where do you see the Kings and yourself in 5 years? Contending for the title?
A: If I'm completely honest, I have to say I can see us contending for the title a bit sooner than that. We've been putting the team together for 3 years now according to the plans of our management, and now the pieces are together. This team will now grow together and I hope to play in the Stanley Cup finals and win a cup sooner than in five years.
