Google Translate adds ten new languages...

...and Canada's hockey reporters and webloggers should take special note, because the new languages include three of the sport's six most important mother tongues: Czech, Swedish, and Finnish. (Hockey Rodent, for one, has been quietly dining out for years on translated intel from the Czech press about the doings and sayings of Jagr et al.)

Of course it usually takes a heavy amount of interpretation to smooth out the machine translation, but Ilya Kovalchuk's quote to the Czech press this morning after winning the Worlds with an OT PP goal against Canada comes through loud and clear: "We were lucky. God stood on this a bit more on our side than on them."

But don't you know? This means Canada will probably lose to Russia in Vancouver 2010. Just ask Damien Cox.
