Come on Molinari...you can do it. Stop wasting people's time on "where the hats from hat tricks go" :roll:

You don't need to "grow a set" to ask that question. It has to be a relevant question. He has given no indication that he's unhappy in any way, so what would be the poing of asking?


Yeltzen, because people want to know...it's a topic that's out there fueled by credible sources, so why not ask?


No offense, but who are these credible sources?

Do you honestly think he would answer "yes"? And do you honestly think the translator would answer "yes" even if he did answer "yes"? Does he want the rest of this season to be a media bonanza?

If Garlic Bread Guy hasn't corroborated them, I'm not buying it.

I know you're an All Star, but I wouldn't question this guy:

I expected to be roasted for this one. I don't know, who knows, who cares, I'm not a reporter, I don't speak Rusian.

Sources: Spectors.

This whole thing is so stupid. Why would a 20yr old kid who doesn't speak English come to North America after hiding away in Finland and expect to be the star attraction in a town he probably never heard of before a few years ago? It's all totally absurd. He gets just as much media attention as Sid and just as much ice time. He's probably HAPPY that Sid is there to detract attention away from him, both on and off the ice.

This is just another stupid baseless internet rumor with no likelihood of truthfulness. I don't blame Molinari at all for not acknowledging it.

Spectors is not a source. He comments on information from sources, ridiculous or not.

It's a source of a source then. Let's not split hairs. For the record, I like Malkin, I give him credit for what he did and hope he retires a Pen and opens another restaurant. Jeez.

So, how does one segue into a question like that?

"So, Evgeni, I've heard this internet guy who is a source of a source of information says that you aren't happy playing in Crosby's shadow? Care to comment? And do you know of anyone hiring, I'll need a job after I lose this one."

well this new article from S Richer must be total fiction...

He lives with defenceman Sergei Gonchar and speaks Russian at home, but is beginning to understand enough English to get by on the ice. He and Crosby can't communicate with words, but you would never know it.

"I'm Russian, so I'm always screaming," Malkin said with a laugh through an interpreter. "When Sidney hears me screaming, he knows what I want. I want the puck. [Crosby] is so much fun to play with, but I still feel like I have a lot to learn from him."
