HC Beil conducted an interview with Tyler Seguin in their "Interview of the Week" segment on their website. Here a sample of the goodness from that interview (translated through Google Translate):Tyler, why have you just chosen the EHC Biel during the NHL lockout?
When I found out that the lockout is fact, I did not wait long and wanted to play. At least for me it was the longest off-season in 4 years. I told my agent that I do not want in the KHL after Russia and wants to play in Europe. I was then informed about the Swiss league, and I liked what I saw there. EHC Biel from me, too, because the team works very well with young players.
Last Saturday you have in a long time played a gravity fight. What are your impressions?
After the jump, more about some NHL players...
- Zdeno Chara's HC Lev Praha played Alexander Ovechkin's Dynamo Moscow yesterday afternoon and the game was televised on ESPN 2. I can't speak for everyone that watched it, but holy shit am I glad that ESPN is no longer doing NHL games. It was apparent that Steve Levy and Barry Melrose didn't give one flying fuck about this game because most of the time they were cracking inane jokes. Melrose even talked about (and I'm paraphrashing) "How foolish it is for NHL players to be playing in for another team" as an NHL commentary guy does a KHL game. The whole thing was a shit show.
- Roberto Luongo plays poker at the World Series of poker.
- Patrice Bergeron has played well for HC Lugano. I believe he's scored two goals in their last game, but the website is so shitty that I can't seem to figure it out. You'd think these websites would be eaiser to navigate, but nope.
