Eller saying he is not surprised by Martin fired but then changes his mind
 
In this interview Lars Eller says he is not surprised but then quickly changes his mind.

Do you guys think that he actually means that he is not surprised but just said that he is since he is on camera?

Eller just like, "you give me less PP time than Darche? To hell with you!".

Erik Estrada 12-17-2011 12:46 PM

wait, is this being filmed? "no comment"

PhysicX 12-17-2011 12:51 PM

Can players express themselves freely and actually say what they're thinking instead of babbling politically/organizationally correct crap?

Theosis 12-17-2011 12:52 PM

Nah not surprised, wait what? the camera is rolling... oops :sarcasm:

Dekar 12-17-2011 12:54 PM

If you watch the Gorges and Cammalleri interviews, I think they tell a lot about the state of the dressing room without saying it directly.

Gorges hinted that a good chunk of the guys weren't playing for Martin anymore, and Cammalleri didn't really deny the question of the players' and coach's relationship eroding. Sounds like what lot of people suspected.

You can almost feel Eller reaching back in his mind for his athlete cliche book.

That's funny.

When you speak publicly, you have to make everyone look good. This is just how it works in any organization.

Eller's mind '' blah blah blah The business of hockey blah blah blah it's our fault blah blah blah Cammy is an elite scorer and Darche is NHL star blah blah ''

Media might as well never ask these types of questions then, knowing fully it's all BS right?

TroyM 12-17-2011 12:58 PM

It seemed to me like he just misheard the question as "Were you expecting something like this to happen/Jacques to be fired", as he was asked "sorry you just answered this" and likely the question was re-phrased slightly so he was all primed to give his exact same answer, realized the question had changed slightly, and then answered.

But of course all Habs fans would rather assume the most dramatic one, that he was about to spill the beans, Gauthier gave him the look of death from a hole in the wall where he spies on players, and he was scared into the PC answer, haha.

Anyway, apparently I'm alone in this, seemed harmless to me.

Stjonnypopo 12-17-2011 12:59 PM

He may have just made a mistake, but I have a feeling all the players were expecting it. When you start the season like the habs have, you know something's gotta give.

As time goes on, players will share off-the-record how things really went down.

OOPS!

Now that's better, right, boss?

;)

JFB 12-17-2011 01:07 PM

I think he just confused the question "Were you surprised" with the question "Did you expect".

They still ask as sometimes they get interesting responses. Not everyone is a skilled liar. :)

Characters are different too. Some people will just always say the same canned response, others will hint at what they mean and they'll imply the truth rather than say it.
