Kovalev will never get a break in this town especially when some "faction" of the media continue to make highly discriminatory comments on all Russians. Tune in on any given night to 110% and you will hear the same message:
- all Russians are lazy
- all Russians don't care
- all this team needs is more French Quebecers, etc.
Bergeron and others continue to propagate unproven "opinions" about Kovy's injury. The best is that the game before, Kovy shot the puck really hard, how come he can't play now? How smart do you have to be to assume that Kovy was shooting up his elbow so that he could play but things were getting worse. The point is no one knows, but because he is Russian we assume the worse. I guess it is to be expected in this xenophobic "nation".
While I am on my soapbox, did anyone else notice lately that the french media have been poking fun at Bob Gainey's attempts to speak french. Heard more than one parody on CKAC ridiculing Bob Gainey. When I heard the bits the first thing that came to my mind is that maybe Saku has a point in resisting speaking french.
