Prucha talking about himself in 3rd person was absolutely hilarious!
overall it was a great production and I'm sure it will be replayed a dozen times before opening night.
I was eatting dinner/watching and I turned to the bf and said, "was he just talking about himself in 3rd person?!" and he wasn't really paying attention and didn't think so... ha. I wasn't sure if I had heard prucha right... funny stuff.
Overall, I thought it was a great show in terms of how well it was put together. What I liked was the focus on Jaromir Jagr's desire to have a great season and help lead the Rangers to the biggest prize of all. Same with Henrik Lundqvist's desire to win a championship, too. You can hear it in their voices that they are very motivated and hungry to win that Stanley Cup title.
Scott Gomez and Chris Drury said all the right things and it is good that Gomez said that he truly wanted to be in New York given it is a bigger challenge for him to win a Cup on the biggest stage in hockey (sorry Leafs fans, it's not Toronto).
As for Petr Prucha, I met him ever so briefly last season when I got his autograph at American Legends. I had paid him a compliment on his fine season and he didn't utter a word. Perhaps he's not confident enough to carry on a public conversation in English. Then again, we look at his interviews and he's struggling.
Not too get real nit picky here, but John Giannone oughta say MSG Training Center is in Westchester County or Greenburgh, New York... not "Westchester". Some out-of-towners might not know he's referring to the county.
Not sure if I'll watch it again on opening night to get me in the mood, but if not, at least I got to see it last night.
Prucha talking in the third person was funny, but I think Gianonne (sp) asked him something along the lines of "what does Petr Prucha think of himself this season as opposed to last". And Prucha who still has trouble grasping the language answered it in the third. Just my take, but I laughed either way. You have to love that kid!
Really? I simply assumed that the questioner asked a question to the effect of "So what do you think the coaches would say about your game?"
That's what I though too. We didn't hear the interviewer ask the question.
Overall the preseason show got me pumped. It was niced to hear everyone say they wanted the cup so freely. It was a big change from the "we want to make the playoffs/go farther in the playoffs", of the last two seasons.
