NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Media Day Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday afternoon at Consol Energy Center, the hockey media from all over the place gathered where the Penguins and Sharks held court. It appeared to be pure chaos, with every player getting a few minutes to discuss their readiness to play for the Stanley Cup.

Here, we have a whole big sampling of quotes from players, coaches, management and more:

It has to be so difficult for Pascal Dupuis, to be in this situation, doing all that he can off the ice to support his teammates without being able to help them at all on the ice.

Well, yes, Patric, we are. We are all nuts.

Evgeni Malkin is the greatest, quite simply.

Matt Murray, ice cold.

There are only so many words I can write to describe how much I love Phil Kessel.

Crosby was also featured on NHL Network, in a sit-down with Kathryn Tappen, Kevin Weekes, and Mike Rupp. He spoke about when the Pens made the Final back-to-back in 2008 and 2009, and thinking it might become the norm, then learning how difficult it can be, and learning to cherish this moment even more.

Happy Trevor Daley makes me happy.

Ben Lovejoy also did an NHL Network sit-down and was asked about his thoughts on being a part of a record-tying eight American-born players to partake in a Stanley Cup Final game for one team, and he gave a great quote. It was something to the tune of "Well...Go USA. But I really don't care. I don't care where my teammates are from, right now we're all from Pittsburgh."

I think we covered most of the angles.

Game 1. Tonight. 8:00 p.m.
