Rangers fan here.

I had the opportunity to attend a lunch with Zherdev when he was on the Rangers. Zherdev sat at my table, and his mastery of the English language is limited at best. He can only speak conversational English so I understand why he would want to speak through a translator.

Pretty classless of Panaccio to criticize Zherdev for using a translator. This is not an uncommon occurrence for many foreign athletes. Hideki Matsui always spoke through a translator when he was on the Yankees, even though his English improved as time went on. Panaccio needs to realize Zherdev is doing him and other press members a favor by speaking through a translator. The alternative is Zherdev not being able to properly express himself or not speaking to the media at all.

I don't think he will realize that, being a ********* and all...

I sensed Timmeh had some vendetta against Zherdev from the tweet he had about him wearing no. 9.

I can't quote it directly but it's something to the point of Bill Barber must not be happy some Russian is wearing his old number.

Sometimes I wish Timmeh would use a translator so I could understand the river of gibberish coming out of his mouth (or through his articles).

aaaaaand it begins

I have a very good feeling come November, I'm going to hate Zherdev

but remember, he will produce just as well as Gagne does, but at over half the price...

He's an idiot. It's like he was waiting to see how he could knock Zherdev and somehow he feels that his lack of English is a way to embarrass him. He's acting like a bully.

I had a feeling something like this was going to happen today. His first tweet was about how Carter blew Richards away in a skating drill and he said Richards looks like he has a lot of catching up to do with regards to his conditioning. He's already picked up where he left off last year.

I'd be pissed if Carter ever lost a race to Richards. Does Timmeh understand that Carter should always blow Richards away in skating drills?

I've seen some pretty stupid **** written, and most of it has come from HFBoards in some way, shape, or form.

I've always said the guy's a moron. Zherdev is going to have a monster year this year and he'll get a long term deal here. Richards is going to bring the best out in Nik and I can very easily see Nik easily replacing the offense that was lost when Gagne was traded. JVR - Richards - Zherdev looks to be a beautiful line. There's no reason why this line shouldn't score 100+ goals between them.

He'll definitely be playing for a longterm contract but it will only be with the Flyers if we drop significant salary.

Carter is one of the fastest skaters in the league. I'd fine if richie never talked to the media and let pronger make fun of timmy p after every game.

It's Timmy P.

Read the rest of this thread, and you'll understand that nobody in Philly really cares much what language Zherdev speaks or who he talks to as long as there is a cohesive locker room. Well, nobody cares except Timmy P., and probably the mass majority of Philly media.

english isn't his first language, and he's still learning. if i were him, i wouldnt want to come to america, play for an athletic team, and risk saying the wrong thing to the press because i misunderstood.

edit: what im saying is, timmy should drag a turd from his butt and eat it.

Wow, this Timmy guy is a real idiot. We have Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski on the Leafs who both speak through translators and even the Toronto media doesn't complain about it; well except for Don Cherry, but as you all probably know that's expected from that bigot.

Okay....and that has what exactly to do with my post? If I was arguing about HFBoards, I'd totally agree. But as it stands, it's pretty irrelevant.

The hordes of Eagles fans he caters to.


Dude's an *******. It's gospel at this point, and there's nothing he can say, write, or do to change it.

After your first sentence, I thought this post was going to be about Timmeh.
