AO is the future of machines.
Kovy is the scoring machine (but an increasingly complex machine)
Lehtonen and Fleury are the goaltending machines (revving up slowly)
Thornton is the passing machine.
Theodore is the "stops intruders at practice" machine.

Before there were machines, there were horses...the king of which is Hossa, an absolute brute on skates that wears down the opposition (catch me if you can!) and fattens them up for the Kovalchuk Kill.

Tucker is the gritty pest machine (and complex, also).

This season the entire Ottawa Sens team seems to be one well-oiled and highly maintained machine.

Individually ---- I have to go with Kovy …… a machine made to stickhandle through defenders.
