Chillin' with ... Paul Stastny

Friday, 03.13.2009 / 10:00 PM / Chillin'

By Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer


What's on your iPod now?"I have all kinds of music from Brett Dennen to O.A.R. to Eminem to U2 to country to rap. I listen to everything."


What are your favorite websites?"Oh, you know, Yahoo, ESPN, the old Facebook and Amazon. I go to a lot of web sites. I get my scores on NHL.com."


Who would play you in a movie about your life?"Russell Crowe. Nobody has told me that before, I just think it. You know, he's a little thicker guy and I think he's got an attitude. He's not a quiet guy."


Do you cook, order in or go out?"I like to cook. I make a lot of chicken, meat dishes, dumplings, potatoes. I make a lot of sides, too."


Favorite TV show?"Definitely 24. I also like Lost, Entourage, Rescue Me and How I Met Your Mother."


Favorite movie?"The Usual Suspects, Gladiator, Braveheart, Lord of the Rings. I can take in anything."


What Hollywood starlette would you go out with?"It changes all the time. I think Megan Fox is looking good now, but I'm more of a blonde guy. It switches up every time I see a new movie or a TV show."


Favorite sports team of all time (excluding your team)?"It's probably the St. Louis Cardinals or Manchester United."


Favorite sports figure of all time (excluding yourself)?"I'd have to say Roger Federer. I play tennis all the time in the summer so I'm big on that."


Tell me a little something about your hometown?"I was born in Quebec, but lived in St. Louis for 15 years. I'd say St. Louis is my hometown. It's a big sports city. It's kind of unique. It has good suburbs, downtown. I think it's got a little bit of everything. It's a good hockey town, too."

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
