Get real.

I played all positions except Center and right wing in my life and according to my playing style im closer being.

Left Wing: Well im a player who fights for his teamates and has a good heart (Laraque) but is also good at making plays (style of Koivu). Has a great wrist shot. But I am a slow skater (Latendresse)

Defensemen: I love giving out hard hits and putting my body on the line to block shots (Komisarek)

Goaltender: I am a positional goaltender who likes also going into fight instead of having the players fight for me. Dunno what goaltender posseses both so cant really put a name

I never said it was exactly like his. It's just a comparison. Quiet leader, leads by example, disciplined on the ice.

Colton Orr's Skating, Hands, Shot, Playmaking, and size. But Marek Malik's fighting ability.

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.
Hahahaha. Good one sir.

I guess I'm up.

I skate like the love child of George Parros and Riley Cote.
Have the hands like Georges Laraque.
Fight like Danny Briere.

Alex Semin but slower. That is a good comparison as whom I model my game after and how I come across in my adult league. No way am I near those skill levels, but I get by on my wrist/snap shot and dekes

I am 29 and just started playing here in California.

I would say I am in the mold of Adam Oates. Pretty good passing. Not much of a shooter, not a great skater and no physical game sadly. I saw myself as an agitator in my head, but it never translated to that out on the ice.

Well said...sounds a lot like me, though I'd personally have to add that I have the goal-scoring ability of Wade Belak.

I play like Terry Oreilly the tasmanian devil.


I also have a record I'm the only player to ever take my skate off and try to stab someone with it.


Yes I play like happy gilmore

I skate like a guy with no feet, I shoot like a guy with no hands, I hit like a guy with no shoulders. So basically Markus Naslund? But really I'm EXACTLY like ovechkin without the skill.

Honestly my coach told me I had a playing style like Crosby, (20 goals, 40 assists in 49 games)

I'm a mix between the traditional power forwards (Neely, Tocchet, Lindros) and the newer age ones (guys like Brown and Cole). I'm a decently big guy with a huge meanstreak on the ice, I like to hit, and I like to hit hard. I've got a good variation of shots and very good playmaking skills. I skate pretty damn fast (usually the fastest guy on my teams), and do it with my head up. I can stickhandle decently, nothing super flashy or anything, but effective, and I'm usually the forward back on the back check.

I've also got really good hands in tight around the net.

My biggest weakness is that sometimes I get a little passive, especially once the ref calls a few penalties for normal play (like a big hit, perfectly legal, but the ref doesn't want a rough game so I get a penalty) which makes me considerably less effective.

shean donovans stone hands
mike cammalleris skating style(average speed, but it looks like im going faster than i am)
eric lindros inability to play with his head up
rocky thompsons poor shooting ability
john maddens good forechecking ability
shean donovans good work ethic
the ability to always get the puck tape to tape in front of the net no matter what(cant really think of an nhl player right now)

score for mediocrity

-Sean Avery pest skills
-Sweeping up the garbage i.e. rebound goals
-I always crash/screen the net
-Can't carry the puck because I for one am not the world's best skater or puck carrier.
-Loyal to my teammates, will drop the gloves w/o thought.
- I love getting under my rival's skin esp goalies
- My determination is infalliable, I'm in the game to win and have fun.
- Puck blocker although it depends who is shooting.
