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).
Kovalchuk (scoring sometimes acting)
Ovechkin (hockey machine)
Jagr (on his game can do anything)
Crosby (scoring - penalty, sometimes whining mahcine)
Handzus (last time he missed a game, no one remembers)
Chara (hard hitting)
Hatcher (dirty elbow machine)
Ottawa (1st line)
(Zhamnov Gonchar Therian) machines you want to throw away.
