QUESTION 11: WHO IS THE BEST OVERALL ATHLETE IN THE NHL?

• TOP VOTE-GETTER: Rod Brind'Amour (18%).
• More on Brind'Amour | Statistics | Hurricanes page
• Some might be surprised by this answer, but they don't call him "Rod the Bod" for nothing. Brind'Amour has a rep for being a fitness freak, showing up three hours early at the rink to stretch, ride the bike, work on core and upper-body strength … before practice. At 36, he's not slowing down and is on pace for an 85-point season.
• OTHER MENTIONS: Sidney Crosby, Penguins (16%); Zdeno Chara, Bruins (13%); Jarome Iginla, Flames (9%); Chris Chelios, Red Wings (8%); Alexander Ovechkin, Capitals (6%); Chris Drury, Sabres (6%); Scott Niedermayer, Ducks (4%); Marian Hossa, Thrashers (4%); Peter Forsberg, Flyers (3%); Alexei Kovalev, Canadiens (3%); Teemu Selanne, Ducks (3%); Joe Sakic, Avalanche (3%); Marty Turco, Stars (1%); Darcy Tucker, Maple Leafs (1%); Mike Fisher, Senators (1%); Martin Gelinas, Panthers (1%); Ray Whitney, Hurricanes (1%).

Pretty good list to be mentioned in.

I would rather see the Habs ranked 1st in the best player, best scorer, best goaler category...

As for being intimidating... No doubt about that... They are also very intimidating for their OWN players ! I guess the habs players voted for Montreal too

Some players need to go get checked out...

QUESTION 5: GAME 7 OF THE CUP FINALS ... WHICH CURRENT GOALIE WOULD YOU WANT IN NET FOR YOUR TEAM?
• TOP VOTE-GETTER: Martin Brodeur (75%).
• More on Brodeur | Statistics | Devils page
• One of the most consistent goalies over the past decade, Martin Brodeur is even more impressive in the postseason. Over his 13-year career, Brodeur has missed the playoffs just once and has helped the Devils win three Stanley Cups. His seven shutouts in a single playoff year (2003) is an NHL record.
• OTHER MENTIONS: Miikka Kiprusoff, Flames (10%); Roberto Luongo, Canucks (6%); Nikolai Khabibulin, Blackhawks (3%); Dominik Hasek, Red Wings (2%); J.S. Giguere, Ducks (2%); Henrik Lundqvist, Rangers (1%); Andrew Raycroft, Maple Leafs (1%); Ryan Miller, Sabres (1%).

how does neone think of Raycroft??
i would even take Theodore before Raycroft.

Agreed. I'd rather the Habs be first in categories that matter

lol...you're probably right about the players. There must have been a complete consensus too.

they werent alloud too..

Media and fans always have their say on NHL players. So, in the spirit of All-Star week, we took it to the players. We contacted all 30 teams and asked them the following questions. The only stipulation: Players could not use anyone from their teams for their answers. We heard from 141 players, or roughly 20 percent of active players. Here's what they told us:

im sure they used teh same rule regarding their city.

To me, there is only 2 questions that matter:

(1) Who won the Stanley Cup this past season?
(2) Who has won the most Stanley Cups?

Let's hope that both questions have the same answer come June.

The thing that makes Philadelphia intimidating is that their fans are extremely intense and ruthless almost. I think the reputation also carries over a little bit from the other sports and from the Flyers' teams that those fans witnessed during the 1970s. But I know that the Flyers are very well supported and the generally, Philadelphia is a very tough type of town.

As for the reason the Canadiens are second, it has to do with our history. Players that play here or against us seem to have a standard to live up to. The fans are extremely knowledgable, and you can't really hide in that type of setting.

Philly is #1 by far. The way they're team is "playing" this year, they have to be RABID at this point.

It's interesting that the more beer they drink, the more knowledgeable they become. They are experts by the third period...

If they had a Best Booers Award we'd probably take it every year. But we'd also take the Best Cheerers Award, and Most Outstanding Ovation Award.

Probably some Philly players who'd like Raycroft in their nets. Would secure their no.1 lottery slot.
