Birgit Eiblmaier went to Crimmitschau to meet both of the NHL Stars for an interview.



It seems like a dream for you both came true – playing on one team.  But how come it´s Crimmitschau ? – It´s not that one of those famous cities in the world

Chris : It was a dream since we grew up. And we both are very happy that we have the opportunity now. I had offers from Austria and other european countries, but i wanted to play with Wayne, that´s the reason.

Wayne: It was just one phone call of my agent – and flights were booked. I didn´t know Fabian (ann. : Headcoach of Eispiraten Crimmitschau ) before, but it´s great beeing here

 

What was your first impression of Germany ?

Chris : The fans, thats for sure ! They chant during the game, no matter what´s the score

Wayne: It´s amazing playing in such an athmosphere !

 

Typical for Germany are several varities of sausage and beer – have you already tried ?

Wayne (laughs ) : yes, i´ve tried a couple of times „Bockwurst“ ( ann.: kind of sausage which can either be boiled or grilled ) and beer, it tastes good !

Chris ( laughs as well ) i only had light beer at the club, i needed to play hockey the other day

 

Back to hockey – hockey is a little bit different over here than in North America – for instance, we play on a bigger rink. Does this make a difference for you ?

Wayne : Not at all. You just have more space to skate, but that´s it.

Chris : That makes no difference for me

How about the referees over here – both of you got some penalty minutes in only a couple games so far ?

Chris & Wayne (unisono ):  No Comment !


What do you think about the lockout ? Most of the NHL fans feel bitter on both sides – Gary Bettman and the players as well.

Chris : We are locked out, so what should we do ? We just want to play hockey, that´s all !

Wayne : I think most of the fans know that it´s not the players fault, as Chris said, we want to play hockey, hockey is our life. That´s the reason why so many players are headed overseas.

Chris : For Wayne and me it´s great to play on one team, and we love to play here !

 

Thanks a lot for his interview, enjoy your time in Germany and all the best for your career !
