What Pro Player do you most resemble?
For myself I would say Chris Pronger, minus the 6"6. How about you guys.

BigBearnier 07-16-2009 11:36 PM

trying to pick a pro i resemble is kind of hard seeing as I'm nowhere near as good as any pro.
but if i had to say, i guess i'd pick Thomas Vanek, minus the speed, great hands, and overall awesomeness.... my hands are decent, and I'm about 6'0'', 210lbs...
the one thing that I do just like Vanek is that I don't expend a ton of energy, but i get myself in position and can flat out score. And my D isn't great.

correction, more like Charlie Conway.

Martin St. Louis. Same height more or less (he's 5'7, I'm 5'6), similar face, he has much longer hair though.

Geez I wouldn't begin to know for myself. I've been told I have the physical stature of a Milan Lucic though I don't see it, I'm no hunchback shaped guy.

I would have to say when I watch shows like NHL On The Fly I see clips of Viktor Kozlov and his skating style and how he moves reminds me of how I look on the ice I think.

I even shoot the puck into the goalie's glove like a dolt too. We're exactly the same height and weight too which is spooky.

Kopecky. Completely useless.

UpGoesRupp 07-17-2009 02:37 AM

Strive to be like forsberg. But i'm a bit too passive when it comes to driving the net.

I end up being more like a ... ron francis type. Solid defensivly, good shot, good speed, better passer than scorer. don't really stand out but can carry the second line and usually get put with the weaker players.

Jeffler 07-17-2009 02:46 AM

Ovechkin, minus the everything

Skraut 07-17-2009 06:34 AM

I'm not a goalie, but I fall down and flop around like Hasek, does that count?

rinkrat22 07-17-2009 07:39 AM

adam burish, or maybe Ian Laperriere. I can skate, I am usually in the right spot on the ice, pop the occasional goal. I forecheck and backcheck hustle and hardwork is all I have ever had as a hockey player. I LOVE to run my mouth, usually just shooting chirps at guys or trying to get guys to laugh on the ice now that I am just an old beer leaguer. I will however lay a nice check or two hander on a guy to protect a teammate. you can get a lot across to a guy for a 2 min minor in beer league.

I'm 6'1" 235, a pretty good skater for my size, very physical when I need to be and posses a decent enough first pass. I've also only scored one goal in my past 2 seasons :)

JustinW 07-17-2009 08:56 AM

LOL mike richards with st. louis size.

digitaljohn 07-17-2009 08:56 AM

Chris Osgood.

Similar height, color, hair color, hair style, eye color plus I play goalie and live in Michigan.

timnsr72 07-17-2009 09:15 AM

id say im a mix between thomas vanek an patrick kaleta(minus the bone crushing hits)

PDX Coyotes 07-17-2009 09:29 AM

In terms of skills? Happy Gilmore :blush:

Jarick 07-17-2009 10:07 AM

I'm like a tiny Brent Burns. Great wrist shot, puts up goals and points, and makes mistakes by trying to do too much offensively. I'm a converted forward so I'm still a little raw in my own end, but I can rush the puck and score.

noobman 07-17-2009 10:29 AM

Vaclav Prospal.

I see the ice pretty well from the wing and can throw good passes to guys despite my tendency to drive wide.

I also share his lack of consistency, lack of finish, and below-average skating ability.

bigwillie 07-17-2009 10:58 AM

Tim Thomas, for sure.

milkshow 07-17-2009 12:11 PM

Ryan Getzlaf

Same size, vision on the ice, physical force, maybe dish the puck off more than I should, we both have some nifty moves.

iamjs 07-17-2009 12:24 PM

Theo Fleury, same size including the 20 lbs overweight, but minus the substance abuse issues and dropping the gloves.

XxLidstromxX 07-17-2009 01:53 PM

Nicklas Lidstrom here

SSM12 07-17-2009 02:12 PM

Hmm, Semin thrown in with Afinogenov. I have the dangles, have the shot, but my finishing, during games is almost non existent.

Ryan Getzlaf

LilWinger11 07-17-2009 03:06 PM

I'm a 5'1" forward, so I'd go with St-Louis or Gionta... minus the talent. I can skate, so I get a fair number of breakaways, but most of my goals are of the garbage variety.

milkshow 07-17-2009 03:12 PM

Where are the Crosbys, Malkins, Ovechkins here? :sarcasm:
