Quote of the year
Coach Claude Julien had to do some serious line rearranging this year to deal with multiple team injuries as well as see who played best together. But he was questioned and criticized over and over for it.
Finally, when asked yet again why he changed his line in late March, Julien said, "Because I can. Because I'm the coach. And every once in a while, you've got to do those things. Simple as that."
