Did you watch this year's All Star Game?
No, I didn't.

Posted Image Me either Pav. Thanks for posting. I wish I could have heard the interview, always makes for a comedic affair.

We wouldn't be lucky if we weren't so unlucky.'

:lol:

If it wasn't for bad luck, we'd have no luck at all.

His English seems much improved.

In my 9 years in the NHL I don't think there was a big move we made on the deadline.

I don't think it was in English. The author sounds Russian. I'm guessing the author gave i t him in Russian and then translated it. Plus, his answers at the end made it sound like he wasn't giving it in English.

Great read though, his humor always shows.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who read it in Pavel's broken English.

And probably better than everyone in the NBA, save Kevin Love.

Haha, yeah. I wish they would explain to him what twitter is though.

If he were to know that 99.999999999999999% of the people who post to twitter don't even know how to spell or type in understandable english, and that even grown adults type like retarded 11 year old girls writing a text message after having 15 mountain dews, maybe he'd realize his english would actually be among some of the best on there and he'd sign up!

Yeah, Dmitry Chesnokov is a Russian reporter who contributes to PD; he does a lot of interviews with Malkin, Ovi, and Datsyuk (as well as other Russians in the NHL) in Russian and translates them to English.

Pavel is always a great interview, whether it's in English or Russian.

ahh yeah, you're right. I didn't notice that. He's the guy who was behind all the Kovalchuk trade news.

I too read it in Pavelese. It took some time to de-translate it, had to jumble up all the sentence structures and add lots of umms, ehmms, erms, and "i feel goo"s.

Pavel might be my favorite all time player. He is so humble, almost too humble but very smart and has a good sense of humor. Pavel is a great guy and player, there is not one player in the NHL I would rather have on our team. Man love for Pavs right here.

Who do you think is the next rising star of the Red Wings?

It's quite difficult for me to say because I haven't seen a lot of our young players in action. At the same time even though we never pick high in the draft our management and scouting are doing a great job. When we had a lot of injuries this year I really liked Jan Mursak(notes). I think he can really play.

Well said, Dats. :thumbup:

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.
