Damn right!

With everything going on in Montreal this year, competitive/asipiring team, 100th anniversary, All-Star game, the players should be very excited about this upcoming season

Maybe he wanted his equipment to show up :P

Although on a side note, wouldn't be almost more expensive and time consuming to drive (with gas prices) rather than take a plane?

HamrlikTheStud* 09-15-2008 01:17 PM

Hmm... or maybe he just wants to have his car here in Montreal since he's going to pass the whole year here...

what do you think an airplane uses? definitely more time-consuming though.

Talent Analyst 09-15-2008 01:32 PM

Wow.. this is motivation.

yukoner 09-15-2008 01:33 PM

He said he had too much crap to carry on a plane, so he decided to fill up the car and drive instead.

HabSim 09-15-2008 01:33 PM

Very interesting interview! Thank you for posting that up!

"You know" count: up the roof! :laugh:

Lol.. :P

But like.. it was just as cheap for me to take a plane home from school than to drive. The train was even cheaper.

I never understood why Europeans were saying "you know" as much. Do they even mean it or is it just something they say because they believe it sounds good in there? :D

_habsfan9 09-15-2008 01:56 PM

You Knowwwww!!!

I think it becomes a habit when you are speaking a different language. I'm French and I notice a lot of my relatives when they try to speak English say "But um" a lot when they talk. Or they say "Ehhh" kind of like a delay before their sentence starts.

CastroLeRobot 09-15-2008 02:00 PM

I think, you know, you kinda know, you know

I often say : "j'veux dire...". Sometimes up to 2-3 times per sentence. It's a bit like "you know"... When you're tired you use this type of expressions more often.

Samsonov was the worst I ever heard on that point.

Stradale 09-15-2008 02:07 PM

wow 14 minutes filled of "you know" becomes quite annoying after a while... you know

But um... you know, that's what I thought. :D

I love it!

I love it I love it I love it

No this is not a secret code

Yeah I definitely noticed that, or if you are in an uncomfortable situation.

lol...yeah some of those Samsonov interviews were classic.
