Pure Pavel!!!

Great read, I loved this bit:

The discussions about the Red Wings switching conferences are continuing.
"On one hand, of course it would be great because we would reduce the number of miles we fly considerably. It would be interesting to try ourselves in a different conference. But until the chickens are hatched we can't really count them. So, people can discuss whatever they want. But nothing is certain at this point. I just hope we won't be realigned to the KHL."

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

I love the jealousy that stems from having the best duo in hockey. Reading the comments on PD is epic.

[Nick] is such a great player and a great person. You can always rely on him and take him with you on spying missions.

Oh, Pavs :lol: That is an important quality to consider in friends, I suppose.

I wonder how many other superstars would say that. I think a lot of people tend to underestimate Detroit's work ethic...

Niklas Lidstrom played his 1,500th career NHL game and you couldn't give him a present — a win, or at least help him score a goal.

"Of course, there is some bitter taste after games like this. We didn't play bad, but the scoreboard shows the score. And it's not just about special milestones, when you lose like that the effect stays. Nik was a bit upset. But we have to congratulate him on the achievement. It is a very big milestone. All I can do is remove my hockey helmet for him. He is such a great player and a great person. You can always rely on him and take him with you on spying missions."

Actually, that was a poor translation of a Russian idiom. A better way to put it is: "I would go to battle alongside him any day".

I really enjoyed him suggesting that learning to make coffee was a great fallback plan in case of a lockout. His English has improved a lot as well. Love the guy

His English has improved a lot as well.

Being that they are all Russian, I am guessing the interview was in Russian and that article was the translation.
