Plenty of words were spoken, flattering ones at that, after the Hamilton Bulldogs upended the regular-season champion Soo Greyhounds to win the Ontario Hockey League title series four games to two.

“It shows how much character and how much desire we have to win.” — Hamilton forward Robert Thomas, who was the most valuable player in the playoffs.

“Obviously, we had a real-good season. But playoffs are a different story and we couldn’t get it done.” — Soo captain Tim Gettinger.

“I’m just so proud of our city. Making the whole city feel proud is what it’s about. What a great time for the OHL in Hamilton.” — Bulldogs owner Michael Andlauer.

“Overall in the series, Hamilton was the better hockey team. We had a lot of injuries to endure, we were pretty banged up.” — Greyhounds head coach Drew Bannister.

“Man, oh man, the character of this group, the resilience, the goal-tending. We just poured it on and were the better team.” — Bulldogs president and general manager Steve Staios.

“I didn’t do it. The players did it. And just the resiliency and the care they have for everyone, it’s just nice that we were able to do it when it mattered the most.” — Bulldogs head coach John Gruden.
