Didn't it take Joni Pitkanen about 2-3 years before anyone understood him?

OK, apart from the wife thing, these are all factors he can control. I imagine he's spending quite a lot of time with his teammates, so there's that. If he invested a measly hour daily to study English with a good tutor, would that be too much to ask for?

I don't know. Did he speak to the media, though, and at least try like the aforementioned Malkin?

No, he won't.

As bad as Bryz has been of late, he's been significantly better than Bob don't the all-star break.

I have way more faith in BOB regaining form than I have Bryz trying to gain formation he never had.
