Players Religions (Or Lack There Of)

Really just wondering, but anyone know some players' religions?

For instance, I know that Tyson Nash and Stu Grimson are both strict Christians (You'll never hear them curse or anything). I've actually heard Grimson PREACH once, and let me say this - the man has s future in preaching...

Went to highschool with Atlanta's Dan Snyder, I'm quite sure he's the NHLs only Menonite...he even took our class on a field trip to his hometown of Elmira. Obviously he's a new order menonite.

What a strange topic. Does anyone really care what religion they are? Doesn't matter to me, Smyth could be a Buddhist for all I know. As long as my Oilers play well, their religion is their own business...

At least those are my thoughs..

It actually does...

Psalms: Cherry 14:8

Thou shalt not wear a visor
Thou shalt be dritty and fight on hockey ice
Thou shalt be a Bruins fan
Thou shalt watch Coaches' Corner

I think its refreshing to hear hockey players not thanking God for helping them win a game like football players, basketball players and boxers do. It is, after all, just a game.

its a game though, and big hits are as much a part of hockey as passing and shooting are. The same for fighting, its just part of the game.

big hits is one thing.
Being dirty is another. Nash is a dirty ******* sorry.
I love it when I hear he doesn't swear.
Maybe he should swear more and be less dirty?
That might be more "christian".

Schneider is NOT Jewish. He's half-Jewish, and doesn't practice at all.

The Henrich boys are, though.

I read in some article that Naslund is Christian and Forsberg is atheist.
