Straight Pavel gold:

 

 

Henrik Zetterberg was named team captain this season. How did he transition to being the captain?

 

“How? He cut out the letter “C” and stitched it on to his jersey, that’s how.

 

 

Gold Jerry, GOLD!

"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 saw a bit of hype on Twitter for a pending Pavel Datsyuk interview - kind of like the giddy excitement leading up to "Sharknado" last week :)

 

Pavel Datsyuk is one of most uniquely intriguing athletes I can remember ever following closely.  Maybe the whole point is that nobody actually is able to follow him closely.  I certainly don't think of him the same way you would think generally about other "Russian players".  Even the other Russians, many of which do not like each other, seem to revere him like some sort of deity. 

 

Also, that was a pretty awesomely subtle joke about being behind his Twitter handle, and also the handle of his bicycle and car.  I think he actually speaks English better than I do, and is just playing it down as part of his master plan.

 

Also interesting when he was asked about Sochi and didn't even offer an opinion on it one way or the other.  When they ask Ovechkin that question, he almost forgets that he's under contract with the Capitals for about 5 minutes.

I said it in another thread where his intelligence was brought up.

 

He is very smart, but plays dumb very very well!

Do you sometimes feel sorry for the opponents you sometimes make look silly? Like Logan Couture for example?

I don't look at it this way. I look at it completely different. I deked him that time, but he got better because of it. And because he got better, it is now more difficult for our team to play against him. Our opponents get better and stronger every game.


That is some philosophic s*** right there.

It's a shame other athletes out there aren't as smart and humble as Pav. Although that is definitely what makes him special and sets him apart from the others. There's nobody else like the guy

Tell us how does iPhone Siri knows you are the Magic Man?

 

“How? Well, I picked up the phone and called Apple. I said ‘Let’s do this! It will be a great project!’

"And it turned out to be great, everyone is happy. It was easy. You just need to have the right connections!”

 

I love Dats.  He should be interviewed every game....twice.

A lot of this has to do with the interviewer.

 

I don't think Pierre gets the same gold from him.

Hey Pavel you remember the time that you deked Couture and he fell down? Yeah, that was sweet. And Pavel, remember the time you ***** slapped Perry? Yeah thatvwad awesome.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Maybe my passport says I am 35, but on the ice you get punched in the face for some reason

 

OK, that made me spit my breakfast out! :lol:


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Hey remember that time you tried to kill a funny post? Yeah... that sucked.
