I flop around so much I make Tim Thomas look like a master of the butterfly technique.

I've been told Gustavsson, lankier guy, hybrid style, relies on reflex a lot

Malkin, but without the size, the skills, the skating, and the finish.
Oh yeah, and the intangibles too...

In college when I had to play a role and was nowhere near the best player on the team, I played like a Dubinsky or even a Talbot kind of player. Now that I'm done with college and playing in a non-hitting league with a mix of skill ranges, most of which are lower than me (just because I was a third/fourth liner in college, doesn't negate the fact that I played a higher level of hockey than most people I'm playing with today) I tend to play like Semin. I love to shoot, I'm quick. I backcheck, but I tend to be one of the first out of the zone, look for a breakout and take it a lot easier. I was a banger my whole life in competitive hockey. It's fun pretending I could have been a sniper.

I'm like a Brad Marchand, except I'm an inch shorter and about 60lbs lighter

I dunno, some sort of Vinny Prospal type I guess. I'm not exactly a checker and won't do much scoring on my own, but I can compliment more skilled players well enough and usually put up point totals beyond my skill level. Or at least when I don't slump for an entire season that is.

In general I score goals by screening/crease crashing & banging in the garbage and assists by taking the puck off the boards and out of my zone and starting the rush by passing it off to the guy who can lead the rush up the ice and score

Scuderi/Mitchell. Defensive/conservative defenseman

Good defense, good passing, decent shot and bad at carrying the puck. So I don't carry the puck, but I help make things happen and save our bacon.

I was lucky enough to play in a couple of charity games with Bruins alumni. One of the players I played against was Johnny Bucyk. When you see him off the ice, you're wondering why he doesn't have a walker. When he's on the ice, you're not catching him. I don't know what it is, but professional hockey players seem like they can put on skates at any age and skate way better than any of us.

I never really thought of who I played like, I guess a slower Daniel Paille. I have a lot of energy and dig for pucks well but don't expect me to make any nice shots or dangles. I keep my game simple and don't score very often.

I like to think I play a little like Blair Betts, responsible defensively with limited but not zero offense. I'm in a high school league.

I've always wanted to play like Joe Sakic, but I am closer to a Ryan O'Reilly or TJ Galiardi.
