What NHL Player Do You Play Like?

I've been compared to a mixture between Mason Raymond and Ryan Kesler.

As a goalie I was always compared to Tim Thomas and Sergei Bobrovsky's Low Stance.

Who have you guys been compared to?

A 6'0 John Scott, without the fighting.

To answer this, I would first have to conduct a poll to determine who the worst NHL player is. Then, imagine that player out of shape, with a poor work ethic, and without any of their good attributes.

If you take all the good parts of Crosby, Gretzky, and Ovechkin, and you just threw them away... I'm a shorter version of what you've got left.

If you put Brett Hull on skates in about 10 years when he's so out of shape that literally all he can do is coast down the ice and take a shot (yet it'd still be a good shot), that's about where I am today.

Dominik Hasek: I'm always flopping around all over the ice.

Too bad I'm not a goalie...

Richard Park. Only because he's Korean, too. Other that... no similarities.

If you were to combine my game with parts of Mario, Sid, and Jagr it wouldn't be too far off.

I have Mario's back, Jagr's moodswings, and Sid's post-concussion issues.

You don't happen to play on my beer league team in Vancouver, do you :p

Mostly I play like a very mediocre hockey player. In terms of ability relative to my peers, and style of game, I guess I'm like a Kulemin of mid level beer league.

Give 100% every shift, go hard at both ends of the ice. Decent passer. Absolutely awful shot. Love chirping the other team. Classic fourth line grinder.

I play as the goon when I choose to. If I can get under the team's skin to help the team, I'll do it.
