"Last season was not much to write home about, and this lack of success motivates me. One wants to show one’s worth it." "The Sutter brothers, people with a lot of credibility around the NHL, wanted me there. But the team began coming together by about the middle of the season only. We weren’t playing bad hockey, in fact, we were fighting for the playoffs until the final rounds. It didn’t work out, and everybody’s hoping next season will be better. I mean, we’ve got a great team. The goalie is outstanding, the defence and the forwards aren’t too shabby, either. I just hope I’ll get enough chance to show my stuff and contribute." "First and foremost, I will do my utmost to show the Calgarians I still have got what it takes, and then? We’ll see. I’m beginning to feel homesick a bit. It may very well happen that, once I’m done in Calgary, I’ll seriously consider coming home. Not only for professional reasons, personal reasons, also." - Ales Kotalik in an interview with the Edmonton Journal
