Oh captain my captain. I prefer Henrik to Daniel, his iron man streak is very commendable. I realize it could have easily gone that way for Daniel, but it didn't. Plus, while I agree Daniel is better, Henrik has proven he can play with scrubs on his wings.

Dave Tiger Williams was a popular player for the team the fans and team mates respected him for giving 100 percent every game

Naslund. One of the reasons why I got into hockey when I didn't know anything about the sport.

Mr. Canucklehead 09-27-2012 12:48 AM

Tough call between Hank and Nazzy for me here. Hank's Hart winning season was amazing to watch, and capping it off with that game against Calgary was just too perfect. I'm going with Henrik here.

Naslund.

These threads are going to make me go crazy.

Tell that to Gradin, Arthur Griffiths Jr, Ivan Hlinka, Gretzky and Lanny MacDonald. Lanny and him were good friends at one time but Tiger always regrets breaking his helmet in two with his stick. That's when Lanny stopped talking to him. Gretzky did the same to Tiger when he was in a fight with Dave Semenko (Cement and him are still good friends).

Gradin thought that Tiger worked for him and acted like it. Tiger told AG Jr to get a job. He busted Scotty Bowman's nose in a skate by no one saw (but league officials in the stands claimed they did). Hlinka would cry about knee problems when out on the road. On one of these incidents Tiger bet him $100 one time that he could outskate him. Tiger gladly paid up after the contest was over.

On Gallacher's old show Tiger told the story that Pat Quinn wanted to retire his number 22. Number 22 would be hanging from the rafters today except Bob Manno (Who at one time also wore No 22) said no. So Pat upped the anti and offered Manno 1000's to do it. "Scummy" still said no.

So why is Tiger Williams not on this list? (Heck, after that, why Manno's name on it?)

Let's not forget what a member of the community Tiger was for years here, always doing charity old timer games, being a constant figure as a pitch man, touring the province as an ambassador for the team, (even when he wasn't getting paid for it), all the work he did for Special Olympics, and getting into a fist fight at a bar every six months?

He lead us to our first Stanley Cup run!

c'mon!

Voted Ohlund.

Burrows is third??? What?!? Henrik and Daniel would be in my top 3 for sure so I already disagree heavily with this but I guess it's personal preference.

I know it's about personal preference but I feel some people might be voting more in the moment and looking at the current team. I do love the guy so I'm not trying to rip on him at all but I guess I'm surprised he's above the Sedins, Naslund etc in terms of popularity.

Hammer79 09-27-2012 03:26 AM

Daniel and Henrik are going to split the vote, and allow Naslund to grab #4. I voted Daniel, but I'd change it to Henrik to block Naslund.

Pseudonymous 09-27-2012 03:38 AM

Wow Naslund before Henrik? crazy

I really saw Henrik just give his ALL last post season, without his bro, which doesn't make it quite as effective but regardless, loved his passion. watching him get laid out by brown and not skip a beat! u know he was playing through anything, that guy would need to be paralyzed

I voted Kesler this time because hes a great all around player and entertaining and hockey is still entertainment but it will be Henrik way before Naslund whose skill and effort just suddenly disappeared after some very disappointing years. Still like him though, he was a bright spot in a very dim past

y2kcanucks 09-27-2012 08:30 AM

Roberto Luongo for me.

More people like him better than anyone else but 2 players? Someone's favorite player really isn't something that can be debated. It is what it is.

The Finnish MacInnis* 09-27-2012 09:29 AM

This is Luongo, or else everyone is a liar.
