What's on your iPod now? "Geez, everything. There are about 1,000 songs on there now. I'm into heavy music like Chevelle, Tool, El Nino, Rage Against the Machine."

What are your favorite web-sites? "A couple of sports sites like TSN, and a lot of music stuff. Some of my favorite bands I get the monthly e-mails about what's going on, what's happening."

Who would play you in a movie about your life? "Dane Cook. That's what I hear. They say I look like him a little bit."

Do you eat in, order in or go out? "I usually pick up. I was into an Indian phase, which is weird, but I love it."

Favorite TV show? "Conan O'Brien. I either watch it, or TiVo it every night and watch it the next afternoon."

Favorite movie? "Vanilla Sky, the Tom Cruise movie. It's mind-bending. I think it's brilliant."

What Hollywood starlette would you go out with? "Pam Anderson. That's it. Without a question. I mean, why not?"

Favorite sports team of all time (excluding your team)? "Philadelphia Flyers. I grew up watching them my whole life. It's the Flyers up until I got to the NHL."

Favorite sports figure of all time (excluding yourself)? "Harry Neale. Growing up watching Hockey Night in Canada, his voice just resonates."

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
