07:26 AM ET 07.17 | In a wide-ranging interview that included talk about his future and the Winter Classic, Pavel Datsyuk also showed off some comic chops. [Q:] What's your favorite hockey trick? "To score a goal. No. To give an assist." [Q:] You think that every assist is a trick? "Maybe not every. But there are so many assists that come out so good that they look like tricks." ... [Q:] Tell us how does iPhone Siri knows you are the Magic Man? "How? Well, I picked up the phone and called Apple. I said 'Let's do this! It will be a great project!' And it turned out to be great, everyone is happy. It was easy. You just need to have the right connections!" [Q:] Is it really you behind the Twitter handle? "Of course. Twitter, Facebook, bicycle, car -- I am behind the handle of all of those things myself."

I saw the caption and initially wondered about the connection with Katie and Tom's daughter.

Hey, Pavel! Can you pull a few strings and get one of those for Tim Thomas?

I really enjoyed reading this article yesterday because it provided a link where I could watch Pavel "crossover" Logan Couture and make him fall on his arse.

No wonder the Leafs gave up their draft pick! Who wants a bum like that? We got much better in return!

I think he was long gone before the Leafs pick. Besides didn't you guys get a Vespa or something like that?
