No GF makes him more "hungry" if you catch my drift

Immigration is tight these days...at least legal immigration although illegal is also more difficult. Snider can't really do much even if he did offer a job...there is a long line. If she had family here already then it would be easier for her but since they are not married it's a different case. I expect though within the year she'll make it through...

I did my best, please enjoy.
Thanks for the translation! That last quote makes me want to pick up one of those sick Bob t-shirts.

If you don't like Bob you don't have a soul.

The other day someone asked if anyone saw Bob give a wink after making a save. I don't remember where it was, probably the GDT. Anyway, found a video of it. Sorry if it was already posted.

Thanks for the interpretation CSKA!

The google translated article has some gold in it though. "The washers stop here". "Physics was not sufficient", I think that's a reference to Pronger.

What will happen, is his girlfriend will arrive in the US 10 days before the play-offs. Bob will be so happy and post 20 consecutive shutouts on the way to the stanley cup.

One can dream right?

He's saving them all for the post-season. I know it

Thanks for translating! I burst out laughing at the Shelley part and also the comment later about Bob wearing dress shoes to the beach!

Ditto on the thanks, CSKA. Though I do love the generated translations handling sports terms. I'm still wondering what imps in snuff boxes is all about.

I already trudged through Google Translate before seeing this thread.

I loved some of Google's interpretations.

"He was not even picked for the NBA Draft."
"I'm much more important than winning."
"In the locker room burst into a noisy crowd of peasants who dragged a brave song."

I always stank in physics, so I can understand Bob's struggles. Probably when the other team was coming at him in waves, he couldn't measure the amplitude or frequency. Maybe he underanticipated the coefficient of friction when going post to post?

Hopefully, the Bobrovsky's had a better experience than the Primakov's:

Bob never ceases to amaze me about the way he goes about things for a guy his age.

Thanks for the translation CSKA, my favorite part has to be:

In a nut shell, the host dressed as a Santa Claus asked me some questions and I had to answer "Bob" to all of them with a silly smile.
Silly smile eh? Coatesy must be rubbing off on him.
