The More You Know

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.

Has anyone told him yet that we're not THAT Atlanta?

Why burst his bubble? Who knows, if Johnny Burma doesn't make the roster this year, the fans could have decided hockey is relevant again by the time he does.

Ha. Sorry about that, distracted daydream over.
