The Player that defines your team...

What player on your favorite team best defines it? For example, Shean Donovan is big, fast, physical, but has hands of stone. He defines the Flames.

OK, you go...

Vokoun or Scott Walker. They lead by playing hard. Tomas had a slow start, but he just had a stellar game against the Avs.

The Blues, Dallas Drake. Hard work and heart this season. Also playing w/ reckless abandon (2 suspensions so far and physical play). Most wins tend to be low scoring and ugly.

Ziggy Palffy - The team is exactly what he makes it. All rides on his back.

Quick, hard working, tough at both ends of the ice and an complete disaster in the play-offs.

Sabres: Curtis Brown

Hard-working, defensively responsible, decent playmaker, can't finish to save his life.

Jason Arnott. Tough, yet inconsistant, non-caring and not getting the best out of his potential during the season while being the player no one wants to play against during the playoffs. Experienced enough to know when to play.

Brian Gionta-small, works hard, quick and plays solid defense.

Joe Thornton - great hands, fast, plays with passion, but has the tendency to take games off...he describes Bruins well...

For the Wild I'd pick Wes Walz - fast, hard working, team oriented, overachiever.

Ryan Smyth as Mr. Oiler himself

Harworking, loyal, gritty, fast, and has tremendous character. Good, but not enough to hang with the big boys

LOL when I first read the title of the thread I was about to log in and type ....Shean Donovan, Flames but I see that's actually what started the whole thing

Todd Bertuzzi. Really good, would be the best in the league if he actually put in an effort.

Montreal Canadiens - Patrice Brisebois - it can't be good...

Barely above average skills and speed, soft, below average defensively, lack of physical play, can't play well in big games.

Based on these posts, I think "player that defines your team" needs to be clarified. Are we talking about a player who's attributes reflect the team reputation or the player who defines the team on a leadership/superior talent level?

yeah that's what i trying to figure out. Hossa would fit the profile for the sens...extremely talented, fast, defensively aware. But if we are talking about leadership and talent alone then i got to go with Alfredsson.

What I mean is the prototypical player on your team. The Flames are a big, fast, physical team that has trouble scoring. Shean Donovan is big, fast, physical player that has trouble scoring. Do you understand what I am saying?

Thrashers

This is a tough one:

Right now I would say Pasi Nurminen for the Thrashers. He can make the unbelievable save and look like an all-star for a couple of games but then go into a funk and let in some softies. Atlanta can display some awesome talent on the ice at times but then have games that remind us we're not there yet.

For the Wings right now, i'll say Brendan Shanahan

Not as tough as used to be. Has great nights and has horrible nights. Still the big name, but not the player he once was.




I think that describes the Wings right now. Great nights, bad nights. Not as tough, but are still the big name even if the record doesn't reflect that.

Steve Sullivan. Goes on hot streaks where he scores 8 goal in 4 games, then goes pointless for the next 10.
