It's good to learn things, isn't it?
From the official Puck Daddy interview with Alexander Burmistrov:
Q. Congratulations on being drafted in the first round and making it to the NHL. Did you think you were going to get drafted so high?
BURMISTROV: Thank you for the congratulations. As for being drafted, yes, I was waiting for it. I was waiting for the Atlanta Thrashers to pick me.
Did you know that Atlanta was going to pick you?
I didn't know it, but I was waiting for it.
At this point in history, enthusiasm for the Thrashers is either heroic or ultra-naive. Probably both. Point is: we're in awe of this Ruskie youth's willingness to become a Thrasher.
