How has it been playing in front of rookie defensemen Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith?
- Vince Naccarato, Des Plaines, Ill.

“It's been awesome – to see their development and how they are progressing into two good D-men.”

What was the most surprising thing about the NHL when you first arrived?
- Andrew Foote, Woodville, N.S.

“The whole thing behind the games; the organization. Everything is taken care of, you just have to go out there and play hockey.”

Who gave you the nickname ‘Bulin Wall?'
- Nathan Hollinger, Grenfell, Sask.

“I don't know who it was, but it goes back to my Winnipeg days.”

What was your biggest save ever?
- Jordan Edgar, Middle Arm, Nfld.

“Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final with five minutes left. Jordan Leopold got a rebound to an open net. I stretched out and it just kind of hit me.”

How much pressure is there on Russian goaltenders to be the next Vladislav Tretiak?
- Jay Draudt, from Hannibal, Mo.

“I don't think there's any pressure, because Vlad never played in the NHL, but he did so much internationally. It would be tough to compare.”

When is it best for a young child (six years old) to just play goal? Is it best to play all the positions for awhile?
- Patrick Nevin, Westminster, Colo.

"Whatever the child wants to play. Personally, I started at 10-years-old. Sometimes kids don't know right away.”
