    One thing I dislike about photographers is they make you take these weird poses that you would never do in real life and so that you're left wondering how anybody got you to take that pose..

    "Vogue" no, not vogue, not ever vogue....;)

    The only time I ever cooperated in monkey shots was in our wedding photos.. ;)

    No one hand over one eye? Guess he hasn't made it into the illuminati yet.

    Did they ask how much Trump's presidency affected his play last season?

    Idiotic journalism;

    Q Why did you pick the number 97.

    A Because I was born that year.


    Seriously, what kind of unprepared, or stupid journalist asks that question? Is it not obvious? Talk about an unprepared interview.

    The only more idiotic question would be what sport are you good at...pfffffttt

    Or, you know, they know their audience isn't hardcore hockey fans.

    They can still research adequately. As in who is Eddie Purcell? That's just bad journalism, doesn't matter who you write for. Its a troll piece. The author is basically hiliting how meaningless the article was to him. Didn't even do a modicum of fact checking. Inexcusable gunk when online facts are had in an instant. Proofchecking is dead too evidently...

    I expect he asked the question for the benefit of the audience and not because he didn't know himself.

    yeah, I can see how he wrote "Eddie Purcell" for the benefit of his audience.. totally makes sense..

    you're giving the author blanket benefit f doubt when in fact he asked "why the number' in the context of a young McD playing players 5 yrs older. How he didn't put two and two together, even, is hilarious.

    A better segue, obviously, would be; "Thus your #97 to advertise to everybody how young you are. "

    That would be competent phrasing and lead to better dialog than McD deadpanning. "That's the year I was born" and probably wondering if he's speaking to an idiot or the readers wondering that.

    As much as it angers me to see the media point this out, I love his answer. They are just passionate. He never said it's a bad place. But he understands why it's miserable. He is the best role model for canadian cities with hockey clubs IMO. I think players need to grow a back bone like McDavid has done. :clap::clap:

    I wasn't talking about an obvious typo.

    It's pretty clear that it was a way to get the subject to tell the story instead of editorializing.

    Whatever, stay mad.

    Come on Connor, show us some personality.

    That was a terrible interview in the sense that the interviewer knows not a damn thing about hockey.

    It's sad that he remembers those losers chirping him at the restaurant when he was with his parents its such a low brow thing to do on its own. Add onto that do these losers actually think saying **** to the best player in the world that you are lucky enough to see suit up for your home town team has any sort of of positive benefit in anyway other than you getting to look like a loud piece of **** infront of your friends?

    Why does he look like he's shampooing his hair while someone is asking him a question.

    He only acts awkward and uncomfortable when placed in awkward situations. Pretty normal response.

    He's not a blowhard like your typical American so maybe that's why he seems reserved to you.

    You mean to tell me with all your posts, you've never once stood thoughtfully with your chin on your knuckles beforehand? The horizon has all the answers.

    I also do the hair in the hands pose in the mirror after a shower as I try to imagine what it would look like if it didn't start receding by the temples at 34. Not much improvement to be honest.
