Offside with Bryan Smolinski

by Staff Writer / Vancouver Canucks
There's enough talk about the tight Northwest division and power-plays so we decided to take the players away from the rink to find out a little more beyond the game. Go .

What would your mom say is your most redeeming quality?


Who would play you in a movie?

Bruce Willis

What would the movie be called?

Patience (laughs)

Who on the team would you choose to be your partner on the Amazing Race?

Probably Mitch [Willie Mitchell] because he's a pretty outgoing guy and I'd probably have the best chance of winning with him.

What is the best advice you've received from your parents?

Remember where you came from. Home's always a big part of your life.

What's on your wall at home?

Art and a mix of family pictures.

What is the dumbest purchase you've ever made?

A motorcycle. A Honda CBR, I bought it last summer. I bought it two weeks after the Roethlisberger accident. After I bought it, I thought that was a silly purchase.

What kind of car do you have?

I have a '67 Chevelle and a '68 Camaro RSS.

What is your signature meal to cook?

Probably prime rib, it's a good all around dish.

What is the weirdest food you've tried?

Nothing off the wall, maybe snails, escargot is weird.

What is the best restaurant you've visited on the road?

I'm going to go back to the old Quebec Nordiques, a restaurant called Chez Guido. They had a great chicken parm.

If you could have dinner with anyone who would you choose?

John F. Kennedy. Just because of the history, the family history, the hype. I've read half of one of his autobiographies and he just seemed like a very driven man. Conversation would definitely be interesting with him.

What is the most embarrassing CD you own?

Patsy Cline

What are you listening to right now?

Old rock. I've got a good variety, anything from Lynyrd Skynyrd to stuff from the late 70s to 80s, rock to dance music. No particular favourite, I've got a nice mix. Love Bob Dylan, that kind of old rock.
