I actually thought it was a big improvement on Lehmanns part.

Thank you mister Burke!

ROFL, but it's cuz he's old. To learn the English language in school back then wasn't as important as it is now. Like to know how to pronounce etc.

Yeah she does seem to be trying to sound american. Which is OK I suppose, but it does come off as a bit ridiculous IMO

And I just cringed when she was incorporating Renberg into the interview and asked Burke to describe Renberg and asdiajdijadijai

I can't handle it!!!

I don't know if it's even a mistake: it seems more like a rule that English names are to be pronounced in the Swedish way. I remember watching (riks-)Swedish news in the early 00's and was bit bewildered with all the Yorge Bushes and Tony Blääärs....

Somebody should tell her that 'obviously' is the word to use when you don't know what else to say

Hedman seems really uncomfortable with the puck. His bodyplay is "ok" but he just seems clueless with the puck lately. He definitely shouldn't be on the powerplay with that play.

I also don't like the Swedish jerseys having the name at the bottom instead of across the upper back.

Luckily the names will be where they're supposed to be on the official jerseys.
