What type of player would you be as an NHLer?
 
And whose line would you be on?

Personally, I'm a two-way center who can do it all, but I'm on the small side (5-9, 185). I have some speed though and a big shot. I'm also gritty and a pest.

I need wingers with size who can score. Ok, so give me Naslund and Bertuzzi. Sweet...

I don't think I'd do as well standing in for Koivu. I wouldn't have the patience to put up with players like Zednik or Hossa.

Zednik has no vision, period. Hossa forces passes and gives you the puck in traffic. Audette would make me work harder on D and that would take away from my O, same with Perreault.

Yuck. It sucks putting yourself in Koivu's shoes...

I'd be a floating/puck hog/cherry picking/defensive liability type of left wigner.

I would have to play on the first or second line, because of my lack of defensive ability.

My stats would vary from season to season from 30 goals 10 assists +/- -5 to 15 goals 5 assists +/- -15. The former stats would be in contract years, the latter would be during every other season.

I wouldn't really care if my team won anything, so long as I get paid.

Every once in a while, I'd tease the fans with a show of skill, only to go back to my usual self for the next game.

I'd be the best kind that there is... a Toronto Maple Leaf... lol...

sorry, had to throw that out there... Seriously though, due to my diminutive stature (5'8, 180 lbs) and the fact that I've been a goaltender for most of my life, I'd likely be a backup goaltender... Not many guys my size make the NHL as a starter these days... I'd be a battler though, always scratching and clawing and doing whatever I have to do to get the win... If I was a forward, I'd compare myself to a Mike Comrie... Offensively talented, and although he's small, he's still tough and will drop the gloves without hesitation... The only difference is, I wouldn't puss out and be a contract holdout like he is...

Joe Cole 09-25-2003 04:40 AM

I would be (am) a power forward. Like the good years of Kevin Stevens. I have the size 6'3" 215lbs, good straight line speed, big shot with a quick release and tape to tape passes. Bad side, can't beat a man down the middle of the ice, only to the outside and beat him with speed and puck protection.

I love to drop the gloves once in a while, I do not need a protector. Like back in the day when guys like Stevens/Neely/Shannahan used to fight their own battles.

Since I used to play D (they make all the big kids start on D in Quebec) I am responsible in my own end, I encourage the D to rush when they have momentum, and I take their place until they get back.

Hey....sounds like a player the Habs would need.... :rolleyes:

mcphee 09-25-2003 05:28 AM

The way I see it, I have 2 options, at 5' 10" 210lbs., I see myself as a Mike Keane type, sadly with less offensive skills. Half the fans would love my effort, and the other half would hate my lack of skills. I'd drop the gloves, but hold on for dear life. What I would love is to be a backup goalie for a future hall of famer. The guys would love me as the dressing room clown, and the media would like me because I'd give lots of quotes. [What else would I have to do ?] At least one poster would maintain that I should be the number 1 guy, if only I had a chance. My worst fear is that the #1 goalie would get hurt because playing is the last thing I want to do. If he got into a fight,I'd leave the bench and intervene,gotta protect the star. If they asked me to play more, I'd retire and get a media job.

Chehabi 09-25-2003 05:51 AM

I'm 6'3 and 176 pounds. I'd be a 2nd line winger with poor vision, a densive game that isn't very strong, a good shot, and I'd be prone to floating from time to time so I'd be really streaky.

CrazyboutHabs 09-25-2003 06:02 AM

I played defense like Scott Stevens in Midget AAA before my accident (hit by drunk driver that screwed up my knee)...I was really nasty, unfortunately being 5'8 althtough pretty built 190LBS, That style of play probably would not have been possible at NHL level.

hockey_nut 09-25-2003 06:04 AM

I'm more of a defensive minded, 2-way winger... more so of the 3rd line calibre a la Rob Zamuner/Kris Draper. More so a speedy defensive assists man, and used to frustrate the opposition's offensive dudes... that was fun.

Gros Bill 09-25-2003 06:04 AM

The type of player I'd be ? In short, injured.

Yessiree Bob, after cashing in a fat contract after 40 half decent games as a "defensive specialist", the "second coming of Larry Hillman" would be sitting in the press box. "My back hurts" would be my usual quote. I'd also spend my time trying to convince McPhee that his back hurts too. (beer tastes better when you're not alone drinking it). I'd be a good team mate to the others, always urging them on, though not in a rah-rah way (more like a burp-burp). And the media ppl would love me, coz after a few brew, I'd spill the beans and give them all the juicy inside info.

J-D 09-25-2003 06:05 AM

I'm a fairly big winger (6'2, 200lbs) who can't use his size, doesn't have a mean streak and have poor acceleration, skating and straight ahead speed. Average shot for guys of my league, good playmaking skills and average defensive skills.

Uh oh, press box time... :joker:

Actually, I think I just strained something. How about being the Gary Leeman of the team. While the guys are on the road and you're home with an injury, make sure all the wive's needs are being met. That's not nice. I feel bad now.

Gros Bill 09-25-2003 06:14 AM

Man, does my back ever hurt. I think I should stay at home and get some "treatment" while you guys go on that 12 day road trip.

GilleZ 09-25-2003 06:17 AM

I would be something in between stay at home, offencive defanceman. I'm 6 feet and aroud 175 pounds. I would be some one like Rafalski. Play the man, and shoot alway shoot the puck at the net.

Go Habs Go!!!

NWT Habs Fan 09-25-2003 06:33 AM

I am 6'4", 240 lbs, shoot right, and love to play the big stay at home RD position. I would be the defensive assistant coach (since I am older than all the players by at least 5 years!!).

If you can develop an effective injury problem, there's room in the press box with Bill and I. With you're size though, our provisions might run low and Bill doesn't like to share his beer.

Oooookay, that's one "home visit" I can take off my list.

Blackshad 09-25-2003 07:10 AM

I play like Radim Vrbata with more grit. I watched him play alot and i got some trick from him to score. I do most of his fancy moves and i am always the fastest player on the ice. I can score alot of goal if i have a center or winger who can read the play well.

Ho im 5'9 145lb :)

TwineSniper 09-25-2003 07:17 AM

A 22 year old, At 6'3" 240 lbs. I see myself in the same lines as Todd Bertuzzi, a sniping power-forward with a slight mean streak. My mean streak may be a little larger than Bertuzzi's (hey, you have to take it out someway right?)

The only difference is where we excel, Bertuzzi has more talent at potting the goals, as for I am a little more skilled at passing.

However, I am very injury prone due to lasting affects of multiple injuries to my ankles, knees and lower back (from real life hockey experience)

I would need to where the Jersey #57 or #95.

My Fictitious Stats Prediction

64 GP- 21 G- 38 A- 59 PTS - 125 PIM-+11--9 PP--0 SH--6 GW

red alert 23 09-25-2003 07:28 AM

A few years back ; in the Q ; alot of people compare me to Petr Svoboda because of my skatting and my pass precision in my own zone !
Once an a while I bounced off the boards like Svoboda also ; but thank God I didn`t get hurt ! I wasn`t big ( still aint big today ) 5.10 175 pounds but always was able to clear the net !

I wish I was bigger back then because a few scouts talked to me and said that the only thing missing for me to get drafted was a few extra inches and pounds and I would of make it !

If I had found a magic lamp with a "Jinny" to make my wish come thruw
I would have wish to be the clone of Cam Neely ( sorry you all he`s a Bruins)

Gros Bill 09-25-2003 09:23 AM

Oh man, my back really hurts now.

4:20 09-25-2003 09:38 AM

I would be a tough, stay-at-home defender in the model of Adam Foote. I can read the play well, I like to throw my body around, I am quick skater, and I have a quick stick - because of these qualities I am very effective defensively (like Keith Carney). The only thing that could hold me back from stardom is the fact that I can not pass or shoot the puck very well at all.

Joe Cole 09-25-2003 09:49 AM

Gros Bill, NWT Habs Fan and mcphee crack me up. :lol: Just remember what what Big Al did to Leeman....after Leeman did something to misses Big Al...

I guess Gary got the good end of that trade :joker:

Subban Fan 09-25-2003 09:58 AM

A left winger 25 years old 6'1" 180 lbs...

A player who thinks only offense...
Always want to make spectacular moves...
Good playmaker but tends to hold the puck for a too long time...
Favorite of the crowd...
Troublemaker for the coach...

Average stats

82gp 32g 40a 72pts 85pim -12

ChemiseBleuHonnete 09-25-2003 10:00 AM

I'm 5 foot 5 and never played hockey until last year. And fortunatly, I liked it a lot. I played hours and hours outside. I'm a very good skater, good agility and acceleration. Bad puck protection (lack of experience) but I can do nice dekes one on one on the goalie (I played a few times against a goalie, and deked them very easely). I don't have a hard slap shot but a laser, very accurate wrister. When I play with many people, I am always the one who backchecks and get away with the puck. I also always intercept a **** load a passes. People hate to play against me because I break too much plays. My main quality would be my playmaking skills. They're still pretty raw but I've been able to deke like 2 guys then passing the puck to a guy stock beind two opposite players.

I'll likely practice a lot outside and skate a lot in a arena for the next 3 years, then I'll join a league. BTW, it's my work to help people getting into a better shape, so I'm very strong and big enough (also I'm still getting bigger) for my height.
