I love almost all of them but i'd have to go with Andrei Kostitsyn, Andrei Markov, Mike Komisarek.

That's a tough call. I like most of the players on the team.
1) Koivu
2) Andrei
3) Sergei
4) Kovy

20) Bouillon
21) Begin
22) Tender
23) Dandy

I will never understand how Higgins is more hyped/loved than Plekanec who offers more speed, more skills and as much of a defensive game, but oh well... I respect your opinions.

To me it's :

1. Tanguay. My favorite player from Quebec since I follow the NHL (2001). I went in the same high school than his brother (Maxime, 3rd round Chicago's pick), I come from the same piece of land... and his skills are just amazing. He reminds me of a mini-Hossa. Not as good as Hossa, but still, he is the full package. Speed, good shot, defensive awareness, great vision, great passing, experience, leadership, "clutchness"... he's just all this.

2. Hamrlik. You've got to love this player. So clever and so good in the D-zone. Some guys here are severe with his play in the playoffs. The guy played a great D-game all year long despite being matched with rookies and Brisebois. He was new to this system, and still was the D who had to play with the most players. I'm expecting the same thing from Hammernext year, with better offensive numbers.

3. Kovalev. He could be #2 though. It's pretty close between Hammer and him. He's an illusionist on this ice, and was THE reason, along with Hamrlik, why we finished that high in the standings. Take Hamrlik and Kovalev out, and we likely don't make the playoffs.

For the rest, I would say :

4. A. Kostitsyn - Great player in the making.
5. Komisarek - Future captain/leader. Great player under pressure, great attitude. But his play on the ice seems to be overrated by some Habs fans though.
6. Markov - Great QB, defensive player. if he can still get more than 50pts, while improving his D-play just a little bit, he could go up at #4...
7. Plekanec. I just love this kid. Great vision, and he's the most improved player in the last 3 years along with Komisarek.
8. S. Kostitsyn. I just wish he is going to keep working hard. He's so overhyped here, I'm scared to see some fans jump on his back if he doesn't get more than 55pts.
9. Price. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Price. But he's so cold and all... I love him when he's on the top of his game. I just hope he's gonna have a great season next year. If he does, well he could make his way through the TOP-5.
10. Koivu. Great leader on the ice at the least, always putting up a good effort. Before this year, he was in my top-5, top7. But I kind of think the injuries and the diseases may have caught him up. Hopefully He'll prove me wrong.

I like the major part of this team, but I just find some players harder to like than the others.

Koivu-When this guy scores in the playoffs, I feel he can change the momentum of the game because people follow him. Whether or not it's true, just he pumps you up when he scores after we're down and making a comeback, just my opinion.

Andrei-Our talented russian, almost every team has one, don't they? Add that he hits, plays a two-way game and can probably have good chemistry with a lot of our players, and he's just plain showing us why he was drafted high.

Higgins/Komisarek-One of these two will replace Koivu as captain one day most likely. I can't choose one and not the other. They are excellent at their role. Komisarek led the league in blocked shots, second in hits. Higgins is a two-way presence with good speed and can score and assist...did I mention they both have leadership? They are surely going to be here for a while, hopefully anyway.

Sergei Kostytsin, just love the energy this kid displays... similar to younger Koivu
Koivu/Higgins/Komisarek pretty much equal

I think people prefer Higgins over Plekanec because it shows that he tries hard... Plekanec looks a bit more effortless, in a way I'd say similar to Kovalev who looks lazy at times.
Then again, Pleks putting up more points while looking more effortless probably means he's a better offensive player... but here in Qc we usually like that aren't necessarly the best ones, but who look like they're always trying, which is Higgins.
