Most of my "inexplicable" likes for certain players come from mid-2000s NHL games. Krajicek, Schaefer, demon speedsters on digital ice.

Although, I've low-key rooted for Patrice Bergeron for a long time, way before he became the player he is today. Always believed he'd put it together.

I used to have a Ladislav Nagy Coyotes jersey, living in Toronto.

Was Radulov, but now that hes back and played great, I dont want to pick him. Feel like the selection in this should be a not great or well known player. So I will choose someone outside of the many good players that I randomly love.

Having said that, I'd say: Magnus Paajarvi, Nick Bjugstad, Colton Sissons, Sven Baertschi, PE Bellemare, and JG Pagaeu. I could probably tell you why for all except Bjugstad.

Olli Jokinen, as a Flame.
Just seemed like a good dude, always had the funny gifs... like; just a likeable dude even though everyone hated him for some reason in Calgary (not fans as much as media).

Blake Siebenaler, plays for Columbus' AHL team.

He was amazing for me in NHL 16 or 17. Won the Norris a bunch of times

Mike Donnelly who played for the LA Kings in the 90s. I have no idea why I liked him. But I got his hockey card and became obsessed with the guy. He wasn't the best or most popular players. But I made sure all my hockey friends knew how ''great'' he was.

Was also a big fan of Ladislav Nagy. And definitely Ziggy Palffy. What a talent he was.

Langenbrunner ...I think it might of been because I would have drafted him much sooner and it made me look good

Oskar Osala. Also , Bobby Holik. Can't resist the eyebrows.

Edit: Mike Ricci too. He's so ugly yet the flow was insane

That is an awesome name and he's a more than solid 4th liner.

The Sens drafted a player in 2013 named Vincent Dunn. He was voted the most hated player in the Q by coaches and GMs and that made me love the guy because that's kind of hilarious.
He's got basically a 0.000005% chance of making the NHL though. Truth be told, he's got about a 0.000005% chance of making the AHL.



I'm also a fan of Shawn Matthias.

Filip Forsberg, but I was a huge fan of Peter, so it's probably psychological.

Most of the games I watch him in, I love his smart defensive play but he will never make it due to him being an offensive black hole. Career 7th dman/call up so far.

Darius Kasparaitis... loved to say that name!

He was such a nasty pain in the *** to play against, too. Always wanted him on my team, so I'd have more reason to say his name
