"This will go down as one of the most memorable days of my life and career. Between winning [the Winter Classic] and the way that we won, and being named to the US Olympic team ... I've been waiting 30 years for this. I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for this opportunity... It's definitely the oldest dream that I can remember, much older than playing in the NHL, and certainly much older than winning the Vezina Trophy - that was never really a dream until maybe three-quarters of the way through last season, when I realized, 'Oh, I might be pretty close.' So, yeah, it would be unique... It's the Olympics and all I want is for the USA to win." -- Tim Thomas, Team USA goaltender, to The Boston Globe in 2010
