A little like Chris Mason ... same hair style anyway. I have serious beard envy, though. I have brown hair though and a larger frame at 6'4.

Who do I look like? No idea. Who do I play like? Depends on the day. Somedays, I score well and don't backcheck. Sometimes, I'm practically a third defenseman. Whatever the team needs, I guess.

Marian Gaborik. Have a very good shot and skating ability but get injured too much sadly. Gabby fits me perfectly.

Teppo Numminen style, Chris Pronger attitude, Jeremy Roenick mouth, Donald Brashear skating. Oh, and physically I resemble Adam Oates when he was young and kinda chubby, as opposed to when he was older and Ray Liotta-y. I'm bad at hockey, but I have a very strong righthanded slap shot. Fortunately, I've given up the Joffrey Lupul conditioning habits.

Lets see, i kinda play my game like Kovalchuk, very fast crisp skater, great shot, uses great vision, but then, i also have the feisty aggressive side.

I play like a bigger version of Rick Rypien on that side of the coin,

All in all, i get the job done, Pk, PP, scoring, hitting, whichever, i even broke 2 boens in my hand from gloving a 6'7 uncles slap shot in my firends back yard rink, my goalie was down and out and i stuck that hand out and.. well, i was in alot of pain.. =D

I am most like Sergei Samsonov, except with less stickhandling abilities and more playmaking abilities.

Mike Peca.

I have good leadership abilities (been captain on 3 of my 4 teams, Assistant on my other), good at faceoffs, very good defensivly, phyiscal even in women's hockey.

Good passer, decent shot.

David Clarkson. I am mobile but my technique is terrible and I love hitting and just standing in front of the net, blocking shots in my own zone, etc.

I try to imitate Forsbergs play and have a great vision on the ice, but dont quite have the hands and his ability to protect the puck. More of a passer than a sniper. My size also fits with Theo Fluery and try to use it to slip past defenders. Always backcheck hard and a decent two way game, but dont have a big physical game... all though if someone starts something I wont back down.

So Im not too sure who I would resemble really. Just gonna push my game to more of Forsberg's style.

I've modeled my game like Patrik Elias, so that's who I will compare myself to. Score a lot, set up my teammates a good amount, will throw the body around, and I'm not afraid to run my mouth during or after the play.

I've always tried to play like my favorite player Alexei Ponikarovsky.

Not flashy, but does a lot of the little things on the ice no one notices, or isn't willing to give him credit for.

Probably Kevin Bieksa. I'm a tough physical defenceman with a decent shot and slightly below average speed that can move the puck when needed. That being said when I played competitive hockey back in my hay day everyone called me Gator (after Jason Smith) so I'm definitely more of a defensive defenceman that will hit and block shots. Kinda like Volchenkov with passing ability (bout overall worse, obviously, lol)

Easy, Doug Gilmour. I always tried to be a pain in the ass for the opposition, was captain of my squad, could make the plays and was even nicknamed killer my the coaching staff. I was also a little on the small side. Obviously he was my idol and my old man loved him too so I strived to be like him every time I stepped on the ice. Man so many stories and memories.... bar fights, fight in the penalty box... our organization skipping town on hotel bills and bus bills... bush league is awesome.

I like being the thorn in the other team's side, always pressuring the puck and blocking shots. Pretty quick on my feet and a serviceable wrist shot (not much of a slap shot), and I'm more hustle and persistence than actual skill.

Not as many superstar votes as I would have suspected

I was expecting most people to relate themselve to Lemuiex,Lindros,Gretz,Sid,Ovy,Geno. Was wrong
