Offside with Jeff Cowan

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?

I'm humble.

What is the best concert you've been to?

I haven't been to many but Metallica was really good. It was about 5 years ago.

If you had a race horse, what would you name it?

Cowboy - after myself.

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

I think maybe, Taylor Pyatt because he just seems like easy guy to get along with and he seems like a bright guy. Of course I think we'd win. I'm actually really good with directions - I'd be a good navigator.

If you could have dinner with one person, who would you choose?

Tiger Woods because I just think he's unbelievable. It would be a neat conversation to sit with him at dinner and talk about golf and how he's so mentally tough. Those are things I'd like to talk to him about. I golf a little bit when I can so maybe I can learn a few things too.

What is your favourite thing about road trips?

Just the time spent with the guys. You get more time on the road because when guys are here at home, you don't get to see them as much because they're with their family. On the road you get to hang out more.

What do you get teased most about by your teammates?

Being the third Sedin - the triplet. I don't think we look alike but the orange hair so everyone else thinks we look alike.

What is your signature dish to cook?

Well, I cook a lot but chicken marsala is probably my best meal. That with a side of pasta.

What is your favourite TV show?

Seinfeld because it's just really funny. George is my favourite character. There was an episode where he pretends to be a marine biologist to hook up with this girl but he ends up having to save a whale on a beach. It was great - that was probably one of the most memorable episodes.

If you could choose a super power, what would you choose?

I would never get tired.
