Well we know he won't be able to skate his way out of an argument...

Don't worry. By the time Latendresse finishes his sentence, they'll already be on another subject.

I thought he was playing in the Swiss League or some such.

All in all too bad for someone who at one time held so much promise. He never was the same player after he drove Taylor into the boards that time. Seemed to lose the edge that had made him a fan favorite. Then injuries/lack of conditioning finished him off....

As long as he remembers not to speak with his mouth full, he'll be OK.

Not Taylor. Some TB vet guy with an Italian name, if I remember well.

« Alors que les blessures m’ont éloigné des glaces de la LNH, RDS me propose une autre façon de vivre ma passion et je compte bien en profiter pour donner le meilleur de moi-même aux téléspectateurs. »

Funny, he blames his injuries for his lack of success in the NHL.

Stock is pretty brutal in French, although some will argue that he's only marginally better on HNIC.

Who can forget Stock's classic line on AC: Louis Leblanc est un kid locale.

Too bad about Latendresse. He had so much potential and was way too hyped, but was never able to really put it together. He was doing decent with Minnesota, but then all the injuries... I wish him well.

Oyoyoyoyoye. Now there's gonna be a real Gros Bonhomme on RDS. His wisdom and especially on other Gros Bonhommes is gonna be key on the panel.

Surprisingly, I saw him just before the holidays on Le Match at TVA Sports and I thought "wow this guy is well spoken and intelligent, I could see him in a second career in the media". He came off better than all the guys around the table. And then he signs with RDS. I'm shocked TVA didn't sign him. The war is on.
