Yes, please. Marisa would be a lovely addition to the birthday thread.

Also, are there pics of this translator? Two or three threads have mentioned her now.

I'm intrigued as well. I think infidelappel called her cute, not hot, and Russian. I'm probably wrong, but I remember reading about a French accent too. Color me curious.

Since I don't get to watch On the Fly until at least a day after the fact, here's a quick heads up: Carter was their Performer of the Night, and Giroux got the Highlight of the Night.

There's a video posted above in response to me... she isn't nearly as hot as the hype. Cute, but that's all I'd give her.

...Anderson has had consecutive really strong years in the NHL. Sure, the season in Florida was relatively short (31 games), but it isn't like he came out of nowhere last year.

Santa Claus reference...

These writers are so predictable its laughable yet pathetic for the industry.

1968 and football. Ideal for 2010 and Gagne.

Quote:
Gagne, 30, just hopes he doesn't get booed.

Fans can be mean in Philadelphia. Santa Claus once was booed at an Eagles game. "So you never know," Gagne said.

It would be a shame. Gagne scored 259 goals for the Flyers, scored 40 twice, was a two-time All-Star and lifted the team in last season's playoffs with nine goals and 12 points in 19 games.

But the Flyers needed salary-cap space, so Gagne was traded for defenseman Matt Walker.

"I don't know if it's going to be tough or special; maybe a mix of both," Gagne said about being in the Wachovia Center. "I'll try … to go in the right locker room."

Gagne has fit in well with the Lightning, and though without a point in Saturday's opening win over the Thrashers, his screen of goalie Chris Mason was key on Lecavalier's goal.

"But that's Gagne," Boucher said. "He does the little things right. He does the little things to win. He's a tremendous player."

Still, Lecavalier said Gagne is "really going to have to focus" the next two games.

"He's played almost every year in the playoffs, so he can handle pressure," Lecavalier said. "But it's not even pressure, it's the excitement, the emotions."

"You still get a feeling for the people you were working with," Gagne said. "I'm not talking about the players but the people outside, people working in the building. That's going to be the tough part. I never really had a chance to say goodbye. But from the hockey side, it's over. I'm a Lightning now. It's time to say, 'Okay, I'm with a new team.' "

Even Mcnabb got cheered, there is no way Gagne doesn't. Philly loves him.

Translator is good looking enough that I'd take her out to dinner and listen to her talk (I like accents).

Maybe they found her thinking that Timmy wouldn't antagonize them since Bobrovsky doesn't speak English.

To make the playoffs, they could be fine as is. Like Hover said, they're a bubble team. They're still a revamped defense, some better secondary scoring, and some development of their young players away from contending though.

Just imagine Giroux coming in on a 1on1 against him. It will feel a lot better.

I don't mind Jones. On the visiting teams roster at least.

There's no way in hell he gets booed and he knows that. He probably responded to the question with his typical settling personality and a slight chuckle. He isn't going to respond in an egocentric manner saying "I expect to be cheered given my achievements there..." As far as "the mix" he mentioned, he probably meant his inner feelings not the fans' reactions. The writer had an agenda and he fit in a quote where he needed it. When Gagne gets cheered, it will be forgotten by these writers who bring up the Eagles and the 1960s. Why not bring up Bob Kelly or Brian Propp and their returns? And the next writer, ten years from now, will mention Santa Claus and a snowball.

I don't get the fascination with Russian accents.

I mean seriously, **** Russia, people forget the Cold War already?

I see that play ending with the puck in the net and Randy Jones sent down to the minors... instantly.
