You might not be aware of the press condition in Russia, nor by the presence of the tantacules of the russian mafia in sports, but if you can read or listen about it, you might get a clearer picture of how things are going there.
So La Presse is basing their reputation on a corrupted media system?

They're the next to be exposed on the La Presse agenda list after they take down "The Organization" and "The Godfather"

Yeah, he does some. He kust avoids saying 'Marc Tardif and his great and good friend Rejean Houle' and he can use any story. The same catch phrases fit. Honestly, I seldom read the game accounts. What are they going to tell you ? Esp. living out here, you get an edition printed so early that you don't get much info. I think it's cool having an old guy in the press box, as a kind of link to the past, though the snoring can bother the other writers I guess.

Really, I found this board because the paper wasn't giving me the info. I wanted.

Is that the exact quote ?

If so i'm sure he ripped a lot of things from this very forum and never said squat about it but now he goes an rant about the clvmcs of this world

No. It's just my opinion of the concept that the Russian mag's "interview" revealed some deep and rare knowledge of the inner workings of the team that only an insider could have. Frankly, it could just as easily have been a collection of speculation culled from any fan board.
