Guy couldn't speak English when he got here.. guy speaks fluently now..


Is that an insight into PoolParty's lack of give a damn?


JP is an enigma.

But it could be an indication of how serious a guy is about doing whatever it takes to improve as a pro hockey player in North America.. Only took Petrov a year to learn the language.

I think JP's biggest problem is his agent.. the agent got a 4th overall pick as a client and is choked he hasn't cashed in by now.. 10% on 1.2M is not what he banked on.


Languages come easier for some than others. I have a friend I played hockey with who is from Quebec and has been here for over a decade and his English is still not good. I have another who's very fluent and never struggles at all. Some guys are going to do better than others at it, and some need more help. Hopefully after their failures with Puljujarvi, the Oilers pay more attention to this with players they've drafted since and make it more of a priority in their development - even for guys still in Europe.
