Can one of the Swedes(or any Swedish speakers) give a summary or translate this interview?
Give me a moment then
Q: Which is the best song to listen to when u prepare for a game.
Bacon: I don't really listen to any music before the game except for what's playing in the locker room and that's usually some rock classics when in Färjestad.
Q: How many stitches have u sewn(?) at one and the same time.
B: I've never had any stitches so that's zero on that question.
Q: The one with the most stitches is the coolest one right?
B: Ye I guess that's right, if ur involved in many battles and maybe take a fight so ye of course.
Q: How does it feel to sit in the penalty box?
B: Nah it doesn't feel good, it's affecting the team so u sit there and feel ashamed.
Q: Who's ur hockey idol?
B: It's Nicklas Lidström and always have been since I grew up. He's the best Swedish Defensemen, so yes Nicklas Lidström.
Q: Which is the best hockey movie?
B: I must say Mighty Ducks then.
Q: As a national team player, who is ur biggest enemy and why?
B: Enemy, nah, I reckon all my opponents are my enemies.
Q: How old were u when u knew u wanted to be a hockey player?
B: I was about 13-14 years I think. Something like that.
Q: How does it feel to tackle somebody into the boards?
B: Well, how does it feel. I never really use to hit anyone, I don't play that physical and arn't throwing any hits but of course it feels good to do it.
Q: How does it feel to get hit into the boards?
B: Well, it depends who's hitting you but it usually doesn't hurt, but if it's a bigger guy u might feel it abit.
Q: What's the best practical joke u've done to a teammate?
B: I've actually never done a practical joke. Im the youngest in the team and it's not so often the young ones who does the practical jokes but sometimes they do it to me.
Q: What rituals do u have pregame?
B: I always tie my left skate before the right one. That's the only one I have I think.
He also did a interview a few days ago when he came back to Karlstad. Might translate that one aswell. But he said he haven't talked to Minnesota for a while and that he doesn't know in which club he will start next season.
We have already started looking for a replacement tho.
Which is a nightmare as Brodin is our best D and also our cheapest along with Klefbom.
And the fact that we've lost our other 3 best D's of last year.
He certainly would play towards 25 minutes a game + powerplay if he stayed.
