OT: Favorite Non-Pred

Saw this on another board, gives us something else to talk about while we wait for real hockey to start back up.

Shane Doan - big, good hands, and all around great guy
Brian Rolston - quick, two-way, team player
Dany Heatly - prototype...big, skilled, good shot, good hands, etc...
Keith Tkachuk - pretty much same as above, great power forward


It for now, I could spend a while on a list but these are tops.

Two players that I really enjoy watching....

Alex Tanguay and Scott Niedermayer....They both have turned into dominating players. Tanguay has really grown as a player these past few years, and even though Scott is older, he has as well. To be honest, I think I would choose Niedermayer over any defensemen in the league given a choice, even over Nick Lidstrom. I just think his skating/decision making puts him on a tier that is unmatched in the new NHL when he is on his game....what a beautiful skater.

Ron Tugnutt was my all-time favorite player. I like Karlis Skrastins, Joe Sakic (though I ABSOLUTELY ABHOR the Avalanche), Steve Yzerman (though I, of course, hate the Wings), Mats Sundin. That's just off the top of my head...

Anyhoo...

SIDNEY CROSBY.



and also MA Fleury, Brad Stuart, Joe Thornton, Vinny Lecavalier, Rick DiPietro, Scott Gomez, Matt Barnaby.

and I started to like a little bit Alexander Ovechkin during the Olympics after watching some interviews and little specials. But I like Crosby best.

Wow, why so much love for Karlis Skrastins? He wasn't that good. In fact I'd say he'd find it tough to make our roster now and most likely wouldn't next year when Weber fully replaces Eaton...

i don't get it either... never was that much of a skrastins fan to be honest... was simply our 3rd/4th best d-man on a team that was weak back then on the blueline to begin with..

and ovechkin is probably the only guy i'd pay money to simply watch as he matures... and since he's in the east i can avoid hating him like anyone in the west

sheesh, can't we just like the guy?

i can't speak for anyone else, but skrastins kind of embodies the underdog low draft pick that worked hard to make it. I like him, but my personal criteria for favorite player isn't that he is good or great or the best.

Personally, I think Skrastins did a lot for the teams that he played for in Nashville. He blocked shots fearlessly, he was fearless about diving to break up a play and I had a lot of respect for how he played, despite his overall lack of skill.

Would he fit into this preds era? maybe not, but he's not a part of this preds era. He was good for us on the quality of teams we had, which were not particularly high. I still root for him to do well, just like I do for Fitzy, Brunette, etc. I'm a sentimental fool, that way...
