I don't blame anyone for not wanting to spend their winters in Edmonton.

 

What about that mall they have?  Don't women like malls?  


Shanny called Mrs. B personally and said he'd make her feel right at home.

 

I wonder how many posters here get what incident(s) you're referring to?

I was glad he said that.  I know he said it originally as a joke but the whole thing about "his wife being the boss" irked me.  

 

Take responsibility for your decision.  Even if it is your wife saying no way in hell I'm going to Buffalo, you still say it was your decision and not put it on her.  

 

Kind of like Pronger throwing his wife under the bus?   ;)

That's what people have been saying since the 1960's.  There will always be good old boys, because there will always folks too invested in the status quo to change anything...

 

Hence, Slava Fetisov's complete about face. 

 

When our generation of people who play video games in their 30's grows up, I have no idea what we'll be like.  But we won't be like the older people today.  It's a less mature generation we live in.  Technology has done that.  

 

It's not much different in Russia.  The younger generations are less mature, get married at later ages and are more independent.  People play with their cell phones all day like mindless idiots. Will be even worse for the generations after ours.  Fetisov grew up playing on the Red Army team when regulations and rules were everything and you didn't get paid jack squat.  Nowadays, players hang out whenever they want, make millions and have lots of freedom.  

 

You'll never see teams again like the Red Army team because there's too much independence now.  A bunch of controlled robots being forced to play for the country is not possible.

At least as much as lawyers do. 

 

They are lawyers.  Thankfully, the good old boys will be gone in 10 to 20 years.  Then the new generation takes over.
