The South Florida 3 got a chance to speak with Richard Zednik over the phone today. Guy says he's excited about the opportunity, excited about playing for Jacques. Well, what else did anyone expect him to say?
Here you are:
"Florida was my first choice so it was exciting when my agent called and said there was an offer. They have young players, they have some friends of mine like Jozef Stumpel. I just feel like I always liked Florida, I like the team and their style.''
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU BRING TO LOS PANTEROS?
"I bring experience and it’s exciting to go and help the team make the playoffs.''
"I like right [wing], but I’ll play both sides like I did in Montreal and Washington. We’ll see where I fit. The season is long. We’ll see how the pieces come together.''
PLAYING FOR JM
"Jacques likes speedy wingers. That’s what I like. I can give that and score goals. I feel comfortable. Guy Charron was in Montreal for a while. I know him very well.''
ON LAST YEAR
"I had some things going on in my life: My family, injuries. The people in Washington were great, but it was a time where I don’t want to think about. I want to move forward with my new team. Everyone here is hungry to make the playoffs.''
