What rangers players could play a different professional sport?

I think that NHL players, being generally amazing athletes, could play other professional sports.

I'll start it out and say....

Jagr as an NFL running back.

What do you have?

Everyone but Orr is a tremendous athlete. I'd say pretty much all the Czechs are frustrated soccer players.

I was just gonna say, most of the Euro's i'm sure are pretty good Soccer players also. The Americans and Canadians? They would enter golf tourny's.

Orr could be a boxer, or whatever that new fighting league is.

Sean Avery can play any sport he wants. He's just banned in every league besides the NHL for being too beastly.

I wonder if hockey players would make good soccer players. I know that Jari Litmanen (Finnish soccer legend) chose between a pro soccer and pro hockey career when he was in his late teens, but the body types of hockey players and soccer players are very very different.

Soccer players have very low body-fat and tend to be lean, lithe and slightly shorter than the average person (by European standards). Hockey players in the NHL, on the other hand, tend to be slightly taller than the average person, and are much stockier and bulkier-built. Now of course, most of the difference is down to how they train, but some people tend towards one body-type, while others tend towards another.

Anyone can play basketball...so every Ranger can do that.

Lundqvist could be a baseball catcher.

Kevin Weekes could be a pro dodgeball player. He's good at missing flying objects.

Completely unfair statement. You have no idea what kind of athlete Orr is. In fact, the very idea of saying that a guy who makes his living playing a pro sport is not a tremendous athlete is ridiculous. Compared to the best hockey players in the world, he is below average. Compared to you, or the rest of the keyboard crew, he is a God.

Orr probably has the best chance out of all of them, if he ever made the switch to MMA. Which is now covered by ESPN, Showtime, HBO, Fox Sports, and Spike TV, and is also the fastest growing sport in America.

You can teach people to play soccer, but you can't teach KO power! He would certainly have that, and the guy also has a chin...he's just hae to learn the grappling end, and cardio, and the guy could go the same route Sasha Lakovic did.

Malik would play soccer.
Lundqvist would ski or play soccer.

Fair enough, he does make his living playing a pro sport so you can't say he isnt a tremendous athlete.

I do think he is a notch below pretty much everyone else though, because his feet and hands are noticeably slower. That being said kudos to the guy because he has really improved both.

And yeah, I realize he could skate circles around me.

Shanahan played Lacrosse. I saw him at a Titans game this year.

I don't see Jagr as a running back, too tall. I think he'd be either a tight end or defensive end.

When you read the bios of the European players they are all influenced by Soccer and Tennis. I'd say tennis because so many people already listed soccer.

It looks like we've officially made it to the offseason with this thread.

I see Pock as a trick billiards master.

The Sedins twins were both playing for the national junior team in football.
