“He does a lot of good things that are hard to teach. He's got a gift.”
—Thrashers coach Bob Hartley

“He has a real competitive edge. A lot of young guys are talented, but they don't have much heart. When you find a guy with both, then you've got a real good hockey player.”
—Teammate Byron Dafoe

“His style will remind you of Phil Esposito. He has an excellent sense around the net.”
—Scout Frank Bonello

—Dany’s mother Karin

“He could be one of those guys who dominates the game.”
—Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock

“Dany is a scoring machine.”
—Wisconsin Badgers coach Jeff Sauer

“No doubt, he’s a stud.”

"This kid has a chance to be unbelievable. He has a chance to influence little kids for a long time if he wants to be a star, if he'll embrace it."
