Postby Tomas on Sun Jul 27, 2008 2:58 pm

Will join their training camp in August to prepare for the new season. The team's head coach is Barry Smith.
Other players that may join them include Alexei Semenov (San Jose) + 3 Buffalo players.

Frankly, him working to improve his language skills would not be a bad thing.

I'd rather have him in better hockey shape than better english shape. He can learn language more easily during the season than he can improve his strength and conditioning.

That was funny before they both had great seasons, even more hilarious afterward. :lol:

I think the hair on his legs just doesn't grow in very dark. Overall he just doesn't seem like a hairy guy. Maybe this is why he didn't attempt a playoff beard..it may have looked worse than Sid's.

or he may have been smarter than Sid

Dude...Malkin and Gonch in a SKA band? That's f'n awesome!

Let's just hope their band doesn't tour with Reel Big Fish, since Penguins feed on fish.

There's plenty of time for both. I worked out quite a bit when I was in college, and managed to both gain muscle mass and get a degree.

I was hoping that both Geno and Gonchar would workout under the same person they did last year. Both had great years, why change it!

Maybe because Malkin was about dead from exhaustion at the end of the year? Who knows though, maybe it had nothing to do with training.

I bet the fact that he lasted so much longer than the year before was due to his training in the offseason.

Yeah I think it had more to do with being the guy for half a season.

His English is perfectly fine as it is for what he needs it for. He knows a lot more than most people think probably. He doesn't need to be fluent. He understands the language, and that's perfectly fine with me.
