What player are you?

If you could compare your game to an NHLer or a combination of them, who would it be and why?

Mine would be a combo of:

Sean Avery's annoyance level
Alex Ovechkin's Moves
Marc Savard's Personality
Corey Perry's skating Skills
Nikolai Zherdev's wrist shot
Shawn thorton's fighting skills
Rick Nash's body
who ever has a very inconsistent slap shot(sometimes great, sometimes...ehh)

I have the moves, skating and shot of a former midget player.

You have Ovechkin's moves?

I think a welcome is in order. To HFBoards, and more importantly...to the game of Hockey!!!


I'm that player that just wasn't good enought to make the big leagues.

I'm just me, and I love hockey. I play defense, I played as high as AAA and my passion for the game only grows.

Not to put you guy's down, but I don't feel worthy of mentioning my game with some of the worlds finest...*shrug*

This could be funny.

Pavel Datsyuk's Moves
Steve Yzerman's Personality
Ales Hemsky's skating Skills
Martin St. Louis' wrist shot
Pavel Datsyuk's body

I don't really annoy other players, and I don't fight.

I'd say I'm like a Higgins type.

Though, when I played, I did everything. Score goals, deke, set people up, back check, kill penalties, hit, fight (if need be, wasn't really big on it) All around player I guess?

Crosby.

No, I'm not saying I'm as good as him, just that I play like him. Always try to see the play before it develops. Great passer, always knowing where teammates are and finding a way to get the puck to them. Still being able to score from wherever, even if I have to walk through a couple guys to do it. Protecting the puck using your legs. The ridiculously competitive drive and never wanting to lose at anything, ever.

Alright, let's see...

I have Aaron Ward's body type
Eric Lindros' inability to skate with my head up, hence 3 concussions in 2 seasons
Kimmo Timonen's wrist shot
Derian Hatcher's slow skating but high power
Mark Recchi's personality
Ovechkin's slapshot ability... as in I can shoot from anywhere while still moving in any direction

I model my game after Graham Drinkwater. No seriously I'm a pure playmaker. Excellent Vision, Excellent passing skills. Guys on my team know too keep there sticks down at all times because if they have a scoring oppurtunity I'll find them, and usually with perfect passes. I have a sick behind the back pass that I practised over many years and I use it almost every game. I like to turn my back to the play and make the other team think I'm gonna skate a different direction but I still know where all my teamates are or are going to be. And at that moment I'll throw a pass right into a scoring area. I like to think of myself as the quarterback of the team. I'm constantly thinking and creating offensive scoring chances.

Marc Savard's Playmaking
Sergei Samsonov's Stickhandling, & Skating (When he was good on the B's)
Brian Gionta's Frame (Only because I'm 15)
Patrice Bergeron's Moves
Kind of Avery/Good attitude, sometimes I'm a pest and very cocky, other times I'm not.

I have hands like Jamal Mayers. They sometimes surprise you but more often than not, I can't hit the broad side of a barn. But I'm a damn good passer.

What's your guess, early first round in your draft class... I'll be waiting to hear your name called in 2011.

Another NHL comparison thread, alright.

A bigger version of Vinny Prospal with much less of a shot.

Alough to be even more brutally honest,

I skate like Dan Kordic
Have George Laraque's body (obvously much softer)
I hit like Jagr
I get hit like Sami Kapanen (being 6'3 doesn't help if you have no balance)
Alexandre Daigle's work ethic

I'm that good.
