Closet friends in the league?
"Kevyn Adams and Corey Schwab."
Favorite NHL city to visit on the road?
"Vancouver. The scenery is tremendous and there's just so much to do--you can go skiing, kayaking, golfing and fishing all in the same day."
What's the strangest superstition you've seen?
"When I played in Toronto, one guy loved to mix coffee and Coke together before a game. That'll keep you up for a few hours."
Ever been distracted by something on the jumbotron?
"I always get a kick out of the videos that show big hits. I like the 'fumbles and follies'-type videos a lot, too."
Worst third jersey in the league?
"It's a toss-up--the Predators and the Islanders. Both of them are equally horrendous."
All-time favorite movie?
"Tommy Boy. I think I've seen it 150 times."
Strangest piece of fan mail you've received?
"There's a lady in Japan who sends me stuff all the time, including a box of chocolate wafers. I didn't eat them, though--I figured they coudn't have arrived overnight."
Why does it make so much sense that Alyn would have an ardent Japanese fan? :)
*still glowing about Petr's OT goal and Thorty's two-goal night* Thorty accomplishment glows last for a long time. I might still be glowing about that next month.
