I don’t remember the last time we checked in with Phoenix Coyotes enforcer Paul Bissonnette, but usually if someone mentions his name it’s either accompanied by dude/bro story for the ages or very attractive females. Alas, comrades, this is not one of those days. No, this time Bissonnette is only being mentioned because he posted a copy of a Twitter direct message conversation he had the other day with Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin.
Granted, their conversation could have used a little more excitement, but Malkin’s “russia best” had Danger Guerrero and me chucking with delight yesterday as we rode horses on the beach. Their conversation gets even better, though, since I obtained a copy of the rest of their chat. Amazingly, it turns out that, much like me, they have very limited knowledge of Russia based on vague pop culture references.
