‘“To be honest with you, I was shocked [by the trade],” Kotalik told Edmonton reporters following Thursday’s morning skate. “I was in Buffalo for a long time. The first couple hours [after the trade], it was a pill that was tough to swallow. It continued until late night. Right now, you jump in with the guys and it feels better. I just have to get used to wearing a different sweater.”’
