Who would win in a fight...you or gillies?
Are we fighing over a cookie, or a hamburger or Sega? No, seriously, Trevor Gillies is my brother, so I don’t fight my brother.
Which Stanley Cup team is your favorite in times past?
Questions from the Islanders Twitter page:
@MKSoftball18 What inspired you to pick the goal song? :D. -Melissa
We had to change some stuff, and that’s where I started. We’re going to change a lot of things around here.
@JOEYMARMSTRONG Ask him what his favorite childhood cartoon. was...:)
Tom and Jerry. I loved Tom and Jerry. I love when the big dog comes around, he was always fun. Hoppy (his pet rabbit) likes to watch Bunny. Parenteau gets upset because there’s a lot of cartoons, but Hoppy likes to watch cartoons. It’s either sports or cartoons in the household.
@Kbx3meadowland why did he pick the number 28
Before the last couple of years, I was up and down a lot. They gave me the number 28 in Columbus and wanted the same number in the minors and the NHL so I just took 28.
@PceLuvBball95 #isles, Zenon, do you think this team can bounce back and get a playoff spot? Also, what is the team working on to improve
We’re working on a lot of things, and you know, playoffs are still in the picture. We’re working on a lot of facets. The power play, penalty kill, and playoffs are still on our radar. We’re not losing sight of that and it’s important for us to keep trying to get there.
