Line Of The Day

from Red Wings Corner- Babcock on Igor Grigorenko

Grigs not being able to speak English ... “That’s one of the biggest problems. When you’re trying to communicate to him that you’re trying to help him, he just thinks he’s getting demoted. It’s to our benefit when you’ve got a player who could be a real good NHL player, you’ve got to find him. … Now try to explain that to him. You’ve got his agent translating, but any time they’re translating, they’re translating, not you. I’m always a little leery of that.”
“He’s going to play hockey in Grand Rapids. Everyone knows what skate is. Everyone knows what work is. Everyone knows how to ride the bike. It doesn’t matter what language.”
