OT: Face of the NHL

I just heard an interview with Steve Stamkos, and he sounds like a bright, together kid. Could he challenge Crosby for "face of the NHL"?

Sorry, bored at work, dying for tomorrow night to come...

I wish the league just got wise and used the real face of the NHL... Ovechkin.... he is the best player, smart, funny as hell, young, energetic, loves the game, and talking to the media, isn't a boring interview.... but oh yeah he is European we can't have that.... ugghhh... I hate you Bettman.

Agreed. You would think by now the league would have gotten rid of this anti-euro stigma, but it doesn't appear to be the case.

Ovechkin & Crosby no doubt.

I don't consider Stamkos on their level.

Crosby needs to grow up a fair amount before he should be sold as the face of the NHL.

He's just not compelling or interesting in any way except that he's great at playing hockey. Other than that, he just comes off as an immature kid. Not entirely his fault, he's still really young and people just plain don't grow up mentally until their mid 20's, usually. But there are far more interesting and likeable players out there that can be marketed more effectively

Dunno about Stamkos, he'll have to prove he's another superstar before it's worth wondering whether or not he should be the face of the NHL

Ovechkin should be the face of the NHL, he is more skilled than Crosby and has less talent to work with. What if Crosby was russian and Ovechkin was Canadien, would Ovechkin be the face of the NHL?? I know it dont really matter but u never know with bettman

But Crosby isn't a Canadien. He's a Penguin.

playing in Tampa = not enough media exposure to be the face of the NHL.

We all know the real face of the NHL is Sean Avery anyway. He's the only one in the gossip columns.
