I wouldn't dare to say I play like Crosby, that's a bit too much even if you adjust to level. But I try to watch closely how he plays and pick up certain things. For example, I like to protect the puck one-handed like he does. Yes, I know everyone does it but the manner in which Crosby executes it, going very low and putting his weight solely on his left leg...most of the people who've seen him play should know it. I'm also known to use the ''Crosbian spin-o-rama'', in which you turn around from your left and make a backhand pass while still spinning.

And for you who feel the need to belittle people who actually answer the question the thread asks, the part from 1:15 to 5:00 belongs to you:

Two years ago I played AAA hockey with Truro bearcats, Hardest slapshot mesured at 89 MPH, and I'm very good puck handler, my coach called me Dion Phaneuf Jr. who happens to be my favorite player.

(Comparable to the level I am playing at, which is high school) I play like Chris Neil, dump chase hit, dump chase hit. I am built like Tootoo though, I'm 5'8 200, muscular guy. But I don't cheapshot

Probably Tim Kerr, Rick Vaive, or Al Secord - something of a combination. Most like Kerr probably.

Hasek. Everybody who's seen me play has said I mirror his style exactly.

Same style as Brodeur, though I'm not quite that good.

Understatement of the year, anyone?

I always wanted to just be like Eric Lindros but I wasn't as big or power forward. I could get to open ice and snap home a goal though.

Ryan Smyth

Spend most of the time in front of the net battling and getting chopped in the back of the legs by the goalie. Oh and score quite a few garbage type goals.

Not really sure, someone help me out.

I'm a defensive forward, not a very big hitter but very smart in breaking up the play with a ton of hustle. Not much of a goal scorer but a great playmaker. More speed than strength to my game.

People compare me alot to Ryan Smyth as a forward, a bit of Darcy Tucker also.
I'm a small player, but love to go dig in the corners, to pass the puck to any open player on my team. I'm a grinder/playmaker. The Ryan Smyth, Darcy Tucker is that I stand in front of the net, screen the goalie, play with courage, tip in the puck, get those rebounds. I always wore a letter when young. I motivate players, but I can't make them better. I need good players to play well. I need to play with someone that can get the pass and score, someone that won't hog the puck, and defensemen that can shoot the puck well.

I try to model my game after Ovechkin, but I keep being compared to Crosby, which I don't like. I will never be a quarter as good as Crosby but I do play a bit like him. Not the greatest shot, does not do much bodychecking but a lot of work along the boards and can always make a few nice dekes. Also my passing game is probably the best in the league and I have great vision.

I am the ultimate defensive forward and ridiculously good on the PK. Very fast and a pretty good playmaker with absolutely no scoring touch whatsover. Cant think of a specific player. Need help.

N. Lidstrom... Good passer and sniper. I'm very aggressive and offensive. Although I'm D, I'm a leading scorer in my team. Ah, PP unit as well.
