Teemu Salanne. Probably the classiest person in the NHL and I wish he was still on the Sharks.
Oh thank god. I was almost going to say Corey Perry, who I have nothing but hate for but can't help but be amazed at what he does on the ice.
Detroit, Datsyuk, naturally.
Vancouver, Can't say i like anyone, and though I think they are cake-soft, the Twins have my respect for their obvious impact on games.
St. Louis, gotta give props to the whole team, but Pietrangelo is a standout.
Your initial reaction was to say Perry and then you settled for Selanne? And you call yourself a Sharks fan.
Well Teemu has had one foot out of the league for a couple years now ...
Actually that's more a testament to how good Perry has been. He's been unstoppable the last two years. And it seems like the more pissed off we get, the more unstoppable he is.
NY Rangers: I respect Lundqvist, but don't like him at all (too much of a pretty boy for me). Can't really think of any players I like on that team otherwise, I hate pretty much all of them, I thought Prust was a pretty cool dude from 24/7 but now he's gone.
Penguins: Evgeni Malkin is the ****ing man, I love the fact that he is probably one of the doofiest guys in the league yet he just tears **** up
Flyers: Claude Giroux really earned my love this past season, he is a really exciting player to watch and I love how he didn't back down from Crosby's BS in the playoffs.
Toronto: I kind of hate Phil Kessel but at the same time I love him cause I find his awkwardness so damn funny.
