I like a regular celebration...

But everyone is different. Gabby is kind of bad ass when he scores sometimes because he acts like hes been there and will be back again... but he celebrates more than Nazzy ever did. Naslund just stood there and didnt even raise his stick sometimes.

I hate over the top celebrations in sports unless it wins you the game. The bigger the game the bigger the celebration - im fine with that. What im not fine with is two VISITING players coming back out onto the ice after everyone has left and chest bumping at center ice. Not cool. I lost a lot of respect for Ovy that night. To me thats over the top and stupid - as was that hot stick routine IMO.

I always liked Gartners one handed stick in the air celebration, with his jersey flapping in the wind after he rocketed a shot so hard from the right wing that it bounced out of the net all the way to center ice.

I don't see a problem with celebrating a BIG goal. But when you see guys like Ovechkin jumping around and going nuts when he scores and his team is already up by like 3 or 4, that is just bad sportsmanship.

OMG....I wanted to jump on the ice and kill ovy in game 3 of the playoffs last year. As much as I hate crosby, I actually rooted for him the next round just because of what ovy did. You want to do that in your building then fine but dont pull that ***** at msg

Prospal/Avery. A mix of the 1st and 2nd.

OV and Backstrom does that in every arena after a win. Yeah it's gay... but c'mon it's not that bad.

I like players showing emotion... when it's warranted.

If someone scores a tying or go-ahead goal in a tight game, then go nutty.

Ovechkin gets on my nerves a little... but not because of his celebrating... but because he is a complete jack ass.

Yeah, thats crossing the line and rubbing it in the fans faces. Thats totally unnecessary IMO, and if that was done in any other decade in the NHL, it would have been corrected by the players.

You mean they actually come BACK out onto the ice after everyone has left and do that? Thats different than just doing a little bump when you go celebrate a win with your goalie.

Standard goal celebrations. This isn't football, but scoring is something to be happy about.

They all have their time and place.

The Ovechkin style to me is more for a huge goal.

The Standard is more for your normal goals.

The my dog died style is for when the game's a blow out.

My all-time favorite is the vintage Messier celebration. Both hands above the head, gliding behind the net with his jersey flapping in the breeze. Classy and appropriate for most goals outside of game 7 in the Stanley Cup.

Although Prospals enthusiasm pumps me up big time.

Always my favorite growing up. When I was a kid and I would play pond hockey or roller hockey I'd always do my Messier impression when I'd score.

I like the understated approach taken by Gaborik (of course that may have to do with the fact that scoring a goal isn't as miraculous for him as it is for the the rest of the team).

I don't have any problem with big celebrations, so long as they are not disrespectful to the other team (that Ovechkin celebration described earlier does seem to go too far).

I love seeing guys who are happy that they scored, perhaps because I'm a soccer fan. That said, I don't mind players who take it more in stride, but I don't particularly like it when someone scores and acts as if it's just another thing that happened.

I couldn't vote. I think it just really comes down to the individual player.

I like it when guys get creative. Some nice ones I remember

Kovalev slamming his stick down his side like it was a sword.

Teemu Selanne throwing his glove in the air and "shooting" it down with his stick like a machine gun.

Theo Fleury's big cross pond slide.

Avery's fist pumps.

A lot of guys need to get more creative.

On most goals, act like you've done it before. On goals of great importance, or even goals that belong on a highlight reel or something like that, then go crazy I guess.

I liked Bernie Nicholl's celebrations. He used the fist/arm pump, and turned around with a giant smile on his face.

Jagr at the end of his time here was another one of the "my dog died" guys. I think that is a good response. I like creative celebrations as well but honestly Ovechkin's annoy me because he does it every single time.

Its all about the individual personality of the players. Some are just more chill than others.
