He looks at everything logically, and he gave good answers. He didn't say it outright but he pretty much said stop bothering us with random crap, we take care of it ourselves, concentrate on the on-ice performance which has gotten better in the last 2 games, guys have to step-up, etc.
Yeah, pretty much. I just meant it as the fact that he was talking for a while, but didn't really say much, which is a good thing. If there is a problem, keep it within the team.

I hope Gainey punches Carbo, though.

Well just tuned in. The media will be the absolute death to this team. And people blame Gainey for not getting the big UFA. I'll be back later today, hopefully the board doesn't blow up by then.

He and Robinson spoke french as Habs. Bob is a Montrealer. Only very recently have anglo Montrealers started to purpously not learn french like in the 60's and before.

Check out the mini SKost interview on tsn.ca

He looks like a very sad 12 year old

Edit: Sorry Tricolore#20, I didn't realize you had already mentioned it.

Man I just watched it, the look on his face seems so weird. Like when you find a puppy that knows it did something wrong =p

"Did you expect that?"
Lol, his answer was great, he looked really darn scared about what's to come (I guess he's not used to getting in trouble...)

No he's not. He was born in Peterborough, ONT. Montréalers loved him so much because he's English and learned French, that¯s why some give Koivu so much trouble about it.

Gainey's sister is also a french teacher.

Well its nerve wracking for sure, especially when English isn't your first language, and you are being told by the Bulldogs PR guy to avoid certain things. He seems like he didn't know what to do, and I feel for the kid. He came here to play hockey, and now he's just linked with some mafioso and has to answer questions about it. Difficult circumstance for him.

He's just not commenting on it... doesn't mean he's not denying it.

So are they going to start investigations to see if they really are found guilty?

man, those reporters talking to Sergei really don't know when to take a hint eh?

"I can't talk about it."

So they proceed to ask him 5 more questions about it..

Hard to make out. The clip on RDS is a lot longer, and just painful to watch.

The reporters seem to not care that he can't speak English, and just keep hounding him. The female reporter that just seems exasperated, wow that is too bad.
