October 3, 2007 - The most dangerous thing you did this offseason was..."Mountain biking. I started that two months ago and got hooked on that. When I look back, it's pretty dangerous. But it's a good time."
The NHL can boost TV ratings by..."That's a good question. I don't know. I think camera angles are the key. Canadian stations have cameras closer to the ice and sound puts you more into the game. If you watch a game on TSN or Leafs TV, you're in the game, you hear the crowd and everything. But for us in the States, it's different."
Hockey's the coolest sport because..."It's the fastest sport out there. It's got everything. Physical, fighting, you name it. It's a mix of football, UFC, and basketball. You need skill, it's physical and there's fighting involved. You've got everything you want."
If you won the Stanley Cup, you'd take it to..."My dad's grave. I'm here because of him."
The household chore you get stuck doing all the time is..."Not much. I tried to change as many diapers as I could this summer because I know in the winter it's my wife's job. I had my share of diapers this summer."
People couldn't pay you enough money to watch..."NASCAR. I heard live it's a show but on TV, I'm not into that at all. NASCAR is not my thing."
