If you're interested. Because really, who isn't?

I would really love it if he turned into a Wing killer wearing that number...

Checked out hockey-reference.com (http://www.hockey-reference.com/friv/nu ... r=91&year=) and their jersey database search: Vlady is the first Blues player to wear 91. Sweet.

Kind of an awkward interview. I know the language barrier is a factor, but all of his answers were very vague and it's like he was very careful not to say the wrong things. Can't wait to see the REAL Vladi on the ice...

Oh, and the dude is Jacked! I hope he lays people out.

BTW, the presser was awkward, the Q&A w/Kerbs was awkward. However, it's not really his fault. The questions they were throwing at him were pretty ridiculous, especially Kerbers. I'm surprised they didn't ask him what his favorite color is or if he like's trees. It was like they were trying to communicate with an alien...

Oh well, who cares? I just want to see him play hockey.

I finally watched the full interview. Yeah, it's a little awkward, but I'd probably be the same way if I had just learned Russian and then was thrown up in front of a bunch of strangers to answer questions. I think in time he'll come out of his shell.

Yeah it wasn't just his answers that were awkward it was the questions.

"Are you excited about being here to play in the NHL?"

Seriously?

Well, he doesn't like the nickname, "Tank".
Kerbs asked him if he liked it and he said, "No tanks".

:lol:

So where did this "Tank" nickname come from then?

It's not like he's played in front of english speaking media much.

He looks like a good kid, it's got to be pretty intimidating coming into this situation.

Hearing Armstrong say "Vlady" just grated against my ears. I'm not sure why.
