'"Paul is a guy that has had to come a long ways from his junior days to now. He has had to work extremely hard to even skate at the level he is skating at right now. He also pays incredible detail to his conditioning on and off the ice. And I think he knows that maybe he doesn't have the natural talents that other guys do, but he will still try and exceed anybody on the team in work ethic and commitment."'
