Convincing Bob the Backup

Last year, Sergei Bobrovsky came out of the blue to become the starting goalie for the team.  How the coaching staff handled him is questionable. Still, he seemed skilled enough to become the #1 guy. But with the 9 year contract agreement with Ilya Bryzgalov, nobody knows what’s going to happen to Bob. If and when he gets a meeting with Paul Holmgren to discuss his role, it’s probably going to go like this:

Homer: Bob, my main main. Have a seat. Before you being asking questions, I want to explain what we’re doing.
Bob: Мне все равно, что вы делаете. Что я буду сидеть на скамейке в течение 9 лет?
Translator: He’s interested to hear what you have to say.

Homer: We’ve brought along Ilya because we feel you can learn from him. He’s handled being a backup before becoming a star in the league.  You’ll learn a lot from him while you develop.
Bob: Девять чертовски лет я буду учиться? Пошел на хуй!
Translator: What an opportunity!

Homer: Now, I understand that 9 years seems like a long time. But if you haven’t noticed, we don’t let lengthy contracts get in the way of things.
Bob: Вы думаете, я веря ни одного слова ты говоришь? Вы, наверное, собираетесь торговать меня в Сибирь, как только вы получаете шанс!
Translator: Sounds quite exciting.

Homer: I just want you to know, you’re a cornerstone of our franchise. we already have the marketing team working on a campaign focused on you!
Bob: Я убью тебя во сне.
Translator: Excellent, thank you.

Homer: I think I’ve covered all bases. You probably don’t have any questions since you know we’ll take great care of you. Have a great day.
Bob: Это последний раз, когда вы увидите мое лицо где-то здесь, когда-либо снова.
Translator: See you in training camp!

If you want a slightly better translation, use Google translate to convert what Bob really said.
