He almost won a Cup, since Anaheim won in 2007 and we won in 2008, and he played for those franchises in surrounding seasons. :lol:

Yeah, if that's what he said (thought I heard it too), it's a rare mistake from the master of hockey trivia

Did I hear him call Bert a Stanley Cup champ?? Forgive me if I have gone nuts, but I don't remember Bert ever raising the cup...

I swear I heard that, too, thought maybe I just didn't hear it right. I then sat there for 10 minutes racking my brain trying to figure out who he won a Cup with.

The blank look on Bert's face after the fact should have answered my question.

I heard that too and he also said we're tied with Chicago. I could tell Bertuzzi wanted to say something but he was biting his lip. Oh Pierre you make me laugh :lol:

The best part was Bert's face as he turned away from the interview. He was like, "Seriously?".

Wasn't his fault he lost a lot of blood from the nose bleeds after standing on such a tall ladder between the benches just so he could see over the boards

He i heard this too. Also did anyone else notice how Pierre said FranSen instead of FranZen during the interview? Call it pulling hairs or what not, but your job is to commentate and be knowledgable. How can he claim to do either of those?

Didn't Denis Potvin call him "Franzine" when we played them last year?

I was watching the Panthers feed.

Actually I thought that I heard that the Swedes actually pronounce their z with an s sound. The correct way to pronounce zetterberg is somewhere near Setterbear

Hopefully it's not a case of Pierre just being his usual idiot self. Maybe he's psychic and sees that Bert and the Wings will win the Cup this year. Thus, making Bert a Cup champion.

I think Pierre is icky and wish he'd be replaced by someone that doesn't creep on the players (as funny as that is when he's interviewing someone I don't like) but give the guy a break.

Tuzzi played for teams that won Cups very near each other. He had just changed teams at inopportune times.

Even an expert who knows who played for whom and who won the cup can miss it by a year with a particular player. He should know, but that doesn't mean he didn't just miss-speak. He probably got off camera and went, "oh, crap. He was with the _______ that year."

Correct. Same goes in Norway.

Here you can hear how swedes say Zetterberg:

Yup. And the vowels in Franzén is pronounced in exactly the same way as the ones in Brashear.

Thanks to whoever it was that mentioned it to me a while back.
