Lombardi, on the new players

To start off the quotes, here’s what Dean Lombardi had to say about the qualities of the two players he just acquired, Jarret Stoll and Matt Greene…

“Competitors. That’s the first thing that comes to mind with both of them. They’re both very competitive players. Secondly, in Stollie’s case, he had an off year last year but I saw this kid a lot when I was scouting for Philadelphia. This is a good player who can do a lot of things. He’s good on faceoffs, he’s on the power play and he can kill penalties. The best thing I liked was his competitiveness. Greene, same thing. I’ve watched him going back to his draft year and he was a raw player. I think he’s certainly improved since college. I think there’s more upside with him but he really comes to play. On both of them, they have a chance to grow, given their age and where they are in their careers. They have a chance to grow and fit with Kopitar and Johnson and the rest of these guys.”
