Hey Scott! My question for you is kind of two-parted. Do you have any pre-game rituals? and what do you normally do on a non-game day? Thanks a lot and good luck with the rest of the season!
I eat at the same restaurant every game day at home and sleep at the same time. Ride the bike and stretch at the same time.
On non game days, we still practice and spend time at the rink. Once practice is over, I am usually with my and kids.

What do you plan to do and where do you plan to go after you have retired from the NHL?
I don't know. I'm going to see. Maybe get into some sort of business. I used to own a franchise in Canada. Maybe learn a trade or something.

How are you doing? Well my question is Who in the NHL did you look up to when you were growing up? What do you think you would be doing if you wern't playing hockey? And last but not least What are some of your hobbies? Thanks for your time and I'm Glad to see you back on the ice after last season :-D Hope you have a healthy and successful season!!
PS GO SHARKS!!!
I looked up to my brothers more than anybody else. Obviously in the NHL I looked up to Darryl Sittler, Bob Gainey and Mark Messier.
I like to bicycle, golf, I have a Harley I like to ride.

Hey Scott, great to see you back on the ice and scoring. My question is, which would you rather do, check Drew into the boards on Shark Byte, or be interviewed by Leeann Tweeden for 54321?
No contest there. Drew is out.

I'm from Boston and was at the game you guys played there on Thursday, but I was dissapointed that you and Joe didn't drop the gloves at center ice. If you and your cousin got into a fight who would win?
I don't think we would ever fight. I have too much respect for him as a player and he is a good kid too.

NICE GAME! How do youtake a slapshot effectivley, and lift it up into the air? I keep on trying, and when i get it up into the air...it's just not very hard! please help,
I guess it is all in following through. If you follow through with your stick low, you shot will be low. If you follow through higher, it will be higher. Most of the speed comes from the torque in the shaft. The whip from that is where the power comes from.

Good Afternoon Scott,
What is the best part of playing on a line with Ricci and Cheechoo?
They are just good hard working players that don't take any nights off. They are also good friends and I enjoy playing with them.

Hey Scott!!! Ð, my question is, how do you feel about this season so far? I mean, with all of the ties, I'm sure that you would much rather win, but tying and getting one point is better than not getting a point at all. And also, if you have time, how do you feel about the ten game captaincy shifts? Personaly I don't really like the idea of it, but I guess it is something that players may work harder for and bring up the team a little more.
I'm a little dissapointed with the lack of wins. You are right that one point is better than a loss. We've made some big strides in the last three weeks. We've played better as a group and wins will start coming a lot more often.
Sharing the captaincy. I have mixed feelings. It is good that lots of guys get to wear a letter and I think a couple of guys deserve to have it and should keep it all year.

OK, we share the same Birthday, correct? 1/9/71
1) what hour where you born? (me, 8:30pm)
2) How do you explain your personnel success with the Sharks (point totals)? Do you have a different role being a Shark, compared to when you where on other teams? Or do you consider yourself a "late bloomer" ??
3) How does it feel being the 2nd oldest on the team? geesh... do we feel old at 32?
Have a Happy Birthday!
It doesn't feel that great to be the second oldest. The birthdates of the kids are getting into the mid 80s and that is when I was getting into the league. That is all part of it I guess. I would rather be 25 right now.
I could be a late bloomer, but I think it was a different role. I was given the opportunity to play with good players and coaches put me in situations to be successful. I had to respond, but the opportunities were there and in the past they weren't.

Just wondering: Where would you say is the most interesting place you've visited as a result of your hockey career? Thanks & best wishes for the season!
I visited Ground Zero in NY about 6 weeks after 9/11. That was the most interesting and troubling place to go visit. I've been to the White House three times. I went with Dallas because the won the previous year and in Montreal we went twice because someone knew someone. Ex-president Gerald Ford did a golf tournament with us in Edmonton and we visited his house.

Have you thought about getting into coaching after you are done playing hockey?
Also, do you believe some teams (or players) are immune from the refs calling penalties against them?
I'm not sure about coaching. It's something I think I might enjoy. After playing for this many years, I'm not sure I want to continue travelling and being away from my family as much.
I think there are different sets of rules and some guys get all the calls and some guys don't.

How do you feel about the possibility of a lockout happening next season? Do you believe there is any way of avoiding it?
I'm aware there is a possibility there won't be hockey next year. That is obviously really dissappointing because this is what we love to do. Negotiations between our union and the league are continuing and the players have given up a lot already and it still doesn't look good. The fact that they are talking is a positive.

Hey Scott, how are you? FIrst off Id like to thank you for resigning with us.... whew! Id hate to lose you. I think it was last season or the one before but they did a piece on sharkbyte with you and a bud riding mountain bikes up to the gold country... are you planning on doing that again? If so next time head a bit farther east until you get to the town of Sonora. Its a beautiful place and Im sure you would enjoy it up here. You could stop by our local roller hockey arena and give us a few tips. Its called Highcountry Sports Arena.
Take care and keep up the intensity!
First of all, it was a road bike and I would definitely do another long distance trip. I'm talking with friends about doing a trip down by San Luis Obispo.

Hey! How do you feel about the Stealth, and will you be sticking around after the hockey game to watch them?
I think it is an exciting sport. Growing up in Canada, it was fairly popular. It is viscious, fast and exciting. I hope they are successful here.
