Anonymous asked: New Geno interview for Russia 2, complete with the jean jacket he's apparently decided to live in this off season... vk(.)com/wall-3314280_923285

genobest:

On why he went to Minsk: To be honest, at first I didn’t want to go. There was this story that after we lost in game 7 against the Rangers, a Russian reporter came up to me and asked if I wanted to go. Being emotionally down of course I said that I was tired and didn’t want to. Afterwards I was reading the news and people were not pleased. What I said hadn’t been taken out of context, but I said it after a game we lost when we were leading the series. After that loss I couldn’t be like, “Quick, give me the tickets, I’m gonna go over there right now!” The next morning I woke up and talked to Tretiak and Znarok. It was a totally different situation. They told me that the team needed me.

On Crosby: He’s number one for me. Not just on the ice (although he’s obviously the best hockey player), but in the locker room and just in life. He’s a very humble and pleasant young man. Because considering how famous he is in Canada and in the US, he is very humble.

Int: Thanks for coming, it’s a rare treat having you here.

Malkin: But that’s your fault. You never invite me to your show.

Int: And that’s a bit of teasing from one of the best hockey players on the planet. […] Please say in was a lie. We always invite you and you never agree to be on the show.

Malkin: Are the cameras still running?

In 2014, Jonathan Toews and Canadian Tire created a commercial that celebrated the coaches, rinkflooders and volunteers in his community that helped him achieve his goals growing up. To honour Hockey Canada’s 100th Anniversary, Canadian Tire and Hockey Canada are celebrating 100 ‘Heroes of Play’ across Canada that enable hockey in their communities. Jonathan is contributing his jersey from the commercial so that it can be cut into pieces and sewn into 100 red jackets that will be awarded to each ‘Hero of Play’. It connects the highest level of hockey to its grassroots because we all play for something bigger than ourselves: We All Play For Canada.

You signed this huge deal but you signed it along with Kane, because you  wanted to stay and you wanted to stay and play together. [x]
