    hehe for someone who just played their first NHL game, Sergei didn’t sound too excited.

  2. Ali says:

    Most dissapointing thing I heard, that Guy didn’t speak to Sergei personally before OR after the game.

    That speaks volumes about his communication skills.

  3. Naila Jinnah says:

    I agree, that was interesting. However, his brother didn’t talk to him about the game either, so it could just be Jr’s style in terms of focus.

  4. Naila Jinnah says:

    Koivu seems a bit… touchy on one of those questions… Jumpy… Maybe he’s been hearing those trade rumors :O

    Carey’s mom seems like loads of fun… And so were Carey’s comments lol.

    As for Sergei, chances are he’s not only a bit shy, but he’s cautious. Not too sure what he should or shouldn’t say. And also, he’s probably trying to keep up with the language.

    You’re right, Saku was a bit touchy on the one question….the reporter tried to put Carbonneau’s words into Saku’s mouth, and Saku straightened him out on it.
