Players In Other Sports Who Remind You Of Hockey Players

Kinda odd topic, but I was thinking back to Brodeur as kinda like CY Young. You know, all time leader in wins, but also losses.

Hasek, Walter Johnson went through the same. Terrible Washington Senators team he pitched for. He was the only guy on the team that saved them. Kinda like what Hasek did in Buffalo.

Gretzky, I'd say Pele, but he didn't have Pele's amazing exciting style

Howe, probably Jabbar in basketball. Longevity, amazing stuff past 35 years old.

Orr, Mickey Mantle. Both were amazing and could do it all, but both had injuries, that had they not occurred, could both have gone down as the best ever without debate.

Shore, probably Ty Cobb. Both played with unmatched ferocity.

Any others?
