I sometimes compare myself to Kovalev, i'm not really fast, but I like to control the puck and slow everybody down. I can stickhandle around players pretty easily (ok not with the same grace than kovy but still).

But my wrister is not really powerful

Jason Spezza.

I look to pass first, give it away second, and shoot third.

I have a good shot but i dont like to shoot and my skating has improved alot.

So according to half the people on these boards, you play like Sidney Crosby?

I don't really know, but I try to mold my game around Datsyuk's style.

When I play player I'm the most like Jordan Staal.

When I'm goalie I'm a freakin' clone of Marc-Andre Fleury minus the scoring in my own net off of my d-man.

I started playing goal in the 1992.
I wanted a number that no big name NHLer had. I picked 29. The only person I could think of with 29 (at that time) was Joe Reekie.
I was a butterfly goalie, stayed kinda deep, relied on my reflexes.
Great with the positioning, lateral was okay, very good with the little things like; the closer the shooter is the higher your glove goes.

Then, this guy named Felix Potvin came on the scene...

Wish I was smooth and graceful like Price, but in reality I'm more like Giguere with an effective B-fly style that is not that pretty as it looks a little "Frankenstein" like being "jerky lurchy" in my movement.

I try and mold my game after Connolly's, pass first mentality, with some good hands. I'm not injured nearly as much though, nor do I have anywhere near that kind of talent.....but that's who I try to emulate

Konstantinov probably. I cannot pass up the chance to lay someone out though I'm not the biggest.

Marian Hossa.

Many people have said I skate and handle the puck like him. The thing that really made me notice it was one of my coaches a few years back who said (screamed at the top of his lungs)that I was standing still on the ice and not in the play, but all of a sudden I make a spectacular play out of no where and we score. I've seen Hossa do that so many times.

It's great that you can score like a champ but try backchecking every now and then!

Ryan Smyth

I don't think I have ever scored a nice goal. Always usually in front of the net banging in loose pucks or screening the goalie.

Although I tend to get more breakaways than him.

If I played an all around game I could still be playing... Or not.

Marty Reasoner. Solid checking liner, good defensively, get the occasional goal.

If I start to skate faster, then I'd say Joe Sakic.

Once you start to speed up on the ice, don't turn on the snowblower for a while.
