Robert Lang drove 12 hours to be in the rookie camp

I heard it on LCN ... He wasn't obligated to be here but he took his car and drove 12 hours to be in rookie camp

Who said he was a lazy guy ??

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

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

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.

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

Lol..

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?

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.

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.
