Conference Call: Bruno Gervais
Flyers defenseman Bruno Gervais
 
Q: On his relationship with Max Talbot
 
“We grew up together.  I’ve known max pretty much forever.  We played together when we were 10 years old back home, so I’ve known him my whole life.  We had a similar path.  We turned pro at the same time, we played against each other in junior, and kept in touch the whole time.  We used to be roommates this summer when we came back and trained together a lot, so just kind of grew up with him and followed the same path my whole life.”
 
Q: When is the wedding, and is he the best man?
 
“He’s one of the best men.  I have my brother as the best man and three other guys I grew up with my whole life, and he’s one of them, so he’s really involved in the wedding.  And the wedding is July 14.  I still have time, nine days left, but it’s coming pretty fast.”
 
Q: Did Max influence your signing with the Flyers?
 
“Well, yeah, for sue, but the main thing was for me that I want to win and I want to be part of a team heading that way.  Last year, I was really happy going to Tampa Bay.  I did enjoy my year. It wasn’t the year that we expected as a team.  To make a little change right now, I’m really excited about that, and turning to a team with the quality of an organization like the Flyers, and such a great sports town – I’ve been there a few times already, and love the town and love the way the organization is heading. I just want to help the team any way I can to go further in the playoffs and having a chance to win.
 
Q: Could you describe how last season went for you?
 
“I was healthy the whole season.  I knew the situation going in.  The last year I had in New York was a tough one with injuries and was a really hard year for me.... There was a ranking of all the D-men, there was a lot of traffic there.  I knew I was going to going to fight to get my chance.  Early on through the year there was a lot of bodies there, so I had to kind of wait for my time, but the second I got back in the lineup, things went really well.  They were really happy with me on and off the ice, I felt really good, and I got back to the hockey I know I can play.  From a confidence point of view, it really helped me that year and helped me get back on track.
