José's January 20th appearance on TVA's Le Premiere Trio

Here are the two clips that TVA published on their website from his first appearance on Le Premiere Trio on Jan 20th. But first, some info: He said he has nothing to announce, he’s not retiring, and he’ll take the summer to reevaluate. He’s not in a rush.
The first video is when he’s introduced and then they talk about the John Tortorella situation. 
Thanks to Val for this translation.
Near the end, José had a little fun with them, when they called him the “rookie”.
Host (I think his name is Louis): The Premier Trio is a little like a hockey team and in a hockey team there’s a hierarchy, you have to earn your spot. I was looking at your stats, José, you have a number of accomplishments. One being having played 648 games in the NHL, you’ve had a brilliant career. But here you’re a rookie and rookies have to earn their place… Are you thirsty? Dry throat? (He asks Eric)

José: We are gonna make things clear now.. Éric remembers, we are almost the same age, when I was a rookie I was what we would call a little cocky. I got maybe a few pucks flying close to my ears, but it was very rare I went to get water bottles for the veterans… It’s not in my nature to serve.

Host: We have the old Theodore, we like it. And you’re leaving?

José: No now that’s enough, it’s all good.
(This is continued in the next video.) 
Then this one is where they’re talking about Borque and then José brings them their water and then he talks about PK Subban:

José's recent TVA appearances

José has appeared on TVA Sports the past 3 nights, and I have some images, etc. to share. I just haven't had time. He was on Le Premiere Trio on Monday night, then on Le Match Tuesday and Wednesday.

I hope to be able to post some things soon.

Here are a few...

José will appear on TVA's Le Premier Trio tonight at 6:30 pm EST

It's over halfway through January, so I thought surely José would be making a TVA appearance soon. So I tweeted Rico Ciccone today and he replied and said José will be appearing on TVA's Le Premier Trio tonight at 6:30 pm EST.

I won't be able to see it, because we can't see TVA broadcasts down here, so any of you  in the Montreal area who are able to watch...any and all video/images/stories would be appreciated.

18 years ago today José and Team Canada won Gold at the WJC

I didn't know the actual date when Team Canada won Gold at the 1996 World Junior Championships. But a guy on twitter said that it was 1/4/96, so exactly 18 years ago today.

So here are some photos remembering that happy event.

And when he was talking to the camera holding his medal, he was saying that it was for his oldest brother, Nick. He said, "This is for you, big brother." :)

13 Years Ago Today José Scored His Goal

13 years ago today José scored a goal (on the backhand) in a 3-0 shutout of the Islanders.
He is the only goalie in NHL history to score a goal (while shooting) and get a shutout in the same game. 
(Damian Rhodes recorded a goal and got a shutout in 1999, but the goal he was credited with was an own goal by an opponent, not a shot by him.
