from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,
But the language doesn’t matter, does it?
That’s what Simon Gagne was wondering on Wednesday, as reporters pestered him about the nickname of his new line - with fellow Francophones Sean Couturier and Danny Briere - as the “French Connection II.” It did not matter that most in the Flyers’ locker room couldn’t name the original members of Buffalo’s famed line of the same name, but Gagne laughed anyway.
“Hopefully having two French guys on the same line will help,” Gagne said. “I have no clue. I don’t think (speaking French) changes much. The only thing it could change is if you’re on a faceoff in the offensive or defensive zone and you want to switch something at the last second - and you don’t have a french guy on the other team - you could speak French and they have no clue what you’re talking about.
“After that, you know, it doesn’t matter if you’re French, Russian, or Swedish. You just need to find a way to play good today. I guess it’s just having that in coming that in common that makes it a little bit easier.”
