Saw Mike Johnson and Andrei Markov at Ogilvy Downtown

I was heading out this afternoon to Ogilvy to pick up a suit ( Tailor needed to needle it up ! )

So I'm going upstairs to say hi to a friend that works at Burberry Accessories, and tada ! These 2 Huge white guys ( one with REALLY redish cheeks and a small guy with HUGE friggin lips are chatting it up shopping for suits.

Went over to chat, here is a resume :

- Markov can speak english and Johnson was convincing him out of letting him get some weird very dark green suit.

- Johnson is pretty tall although he talks with a very american accent ... never would've guessed he's a small town ontario boy.

- Markov said Ovechkin is better than Bure

- That he likes Koivu alot,

- He likes my suit !

- Johnson said he hated Sweden although he appreciated playing with Chara and Souray

He didn't seem to be limping much, two great guys !!!

Those are probably the two players I would have least pinned together.

He's from Toronto (Scarbourough)

But cool story nonetheless.

Honestly eh

Naw Mike Johnson is a really great team guy. I'm sure he's friends with everyone on the team. Seems very likeable.

The American accent is easy to learn, just replace all O's with HARD A's

for example:

- Dollars = Dallars
- Lobby = Labby

Although sometimes you must completely ignore the letter O:
- Chocolate = Chaclate

Full sentence:
"Can I barraw a dallar to buy same chaclate in the labby?"

see, it's easy

You'd think you'd more then likey see Markov with one of the other Russians on the team. Good to see him making friends. More reason to stay the better.

Never understood this. A chocolate bar has chocolate, self-explainatory. By saying 'candy bar/kandy bahh' you'd assume this bar would be one long jolly rancher of some sort, or perhaps a really long starburst.

Hello, Mohn-tree-aahl?
When I used to wach Fox or ABC's hockey broadcasts I'd cringe when they'd try and pronounce french names. Might as well say it phonetically!

Well Souray only played for NJ and MTL. Chara only played for NYI, OTT and BOS. Johnson only played for TOR, TB, PHX and MTL ...

Johnson is Canadian.
Souray is Canadian.
Chara is Slovakian.

Don't see any relation

*The original poster might have just meant 2 different things though ... e.g. Johnson said he hated Sweden. And that he appreciated playing with Chara and Souray.*

Although, I still don't see where Johnson and Chara played together
