Despite my name, I'm having a hard time not putting P.K. first. For now, Pleks still has the upper hand by a turtleneck.

Top 5:

1. Plekanec
2. Subban
3. Eller
4. Pacioretty
5. Price

I understand that your calling out the bandwagon jumpers, but what's the point?

This almost isn't fair, I don't know if I have a 1 and a 2, I think I have a 1a and a 1b when it comes to Price and Subban. I went with the Subbanator as we share the same hometown.

I'll speak for myself, I just started watching hockey about a year ago. When we had Halak. and when they boo'd Price at the beginning of this year without even giving him a chance I thought it was quite silly.

I did! Man, I was so pissed at the reaction Price got when he lifted his arms up in the air like Roy that I almost gave up on the team. I was totally with him since the very beginning. I argued last year with everybody I knew that Price would be the best and that Halak was the one we should trade. I would probably have started watching Price's next team play had he been traded.

So I got to enjoy watching a lot of people eat crow this year.

I actually gave my grandfather a Price T-shirt for Christmas. He was one of the doubters.

I would've had Price two years ago, maybe Markov, last year I would've had Cammy, this year it's Subban. Mostly just has to do with who's most talented/most fun to watch.

My actual favourites list would be long, so if I'm voting for one, it's obvious.

Price in second place. I wonder how many would have voted that way a year ago. The wind must have changed direction...

This. I was a huge Price lover forever, even in 2009 when we got swept, and last year when we kept him ahead of Halak, I did a dance around my living room while refreshing HF haha.

Picked Markov because not only is he an exceptional player, but the guy is of high character in that he is into the game and plays hard. He gives the effort consistently and goes about his play in a business like no drama way .It also means something to me that he genuinely likes the team, city and wants to retire a Hab, and I hope he does.

too many. i haven't liked a habs lineup like i do now in many, many, many years...

my favorite is probably desharnais. plays like he's 6'3. isn't afraid of anybody, smart player, basically, the perfect underdog.

now, subban and price are probably the best bromance in the league and it's hard as a fan to not enjoy their antics. price with the b-boy stance, subban with the celebrations and the chirpiness

and you can see pacioretty has the same kind of swagger. the little shove on chara, the monster hits he dished out, although it did end up badly, showed you the kind of player he is and i hope he comes back the same.

tomas jagr is too gansta for his own good

cammy the consummate professional. i mean, the guy doesn't even celebrate his own goals!

akost, the aloof freight train. he'll flatten somebody, then skate away like nothing happened, like he was driving and just happened to run into a fly. and his smile when he score: priceless i get puck, i make goal!

white is slowly turning into a favorite as well. the way he jumped boychuck after the 'accidental' knee-on-knee with subban was glorious. then, in the penalty box, he made sure to give boychuck, a big 'ole smile. very chippy as well

and to top it off, you have grandpa gill

too many characters

Plekanec for me. Hardest working player on the ice, does not get enough credit for his work.

Captain Gionta deserves some love he is the most intense player on the ice at every shifts and work his ass of like a warrior every game.

He is not my fav habs but he deserves a lot more votes than 2 IMO. He is our player with the most heart easily and guess what he got some decent skills too.

Picked Subban, because I think we have similar personnalities.. he's a very smart guy who gets hated for his "my way or the highway" attitude.. I often get similar results in my life for having a similar approach to people/situations, but I usually end up the winner. I see him being just the same.

2nd would have to be Markov, just because I he is so damn talented, his vision is INSANE! I became a fan of the team right when we drafted him, and honestly I've loved him from the very beginning, always thought he was showing flashes of brilliance, even when he was behind Souray/Rivet/Brisebois and all the other guys...

3. would probably be Price. I do not realte to him at all, because I have an exuberant and very self-confident personnality while Price mostly seems to keep to himself, but I have to say he has insane talent and potential. Even when he was in his lows, when he was benched by Carbonneau, during the "darkest day in habs history", during last year, I always knew/thought he was the goaltender of the future... But I'll admit for a while last year I thought it might happen somewhere else. I was SO HAPPY when I heard Halak had been traded, I spent the whole winter telling people they were wrong to think he was done.

4. Tie between Cammalleri and Plekanec... Cammy is the flashiest of them, great shooter, while Pleks is a very usefull, all around good player. Unfortunately, Pleks doesn't have that one great ability, or the flashy personnality for me to be in love with him... He's bvery effective on the ice, but kind of boring at the same time.

For me its the young guys and Cammy.

1. PK: I got his t-shirt when he was still in Hamilton, I had seen him play at the WJC and I knew the guy was our future. I remember last year at the start of the playoffs we had a day at school where we could wear habs gear, I wore my PK t-shirt and everyone was like who is this guy, why would you waste money on a shirt of a guy who doesnt even play for us. I told them wait for next year, you'll see why I got it. In the end we just had to wait until game 6 to see what kind of talent this kid was.

2. Eller, I live in Singapore and I am currently on my way to MTL, I need to buy an Eller t-shirt. The guy is just too good! I love him.

3. Price, I've always supported him, always wanted him to play over Huet and Halak. I knew we made the right choice by keeping him over Halak.

4. Cammy, I've loved this guy for ever. I love watching the kings play so ive know cammy for a while. When he got traded to Calgary I was dissapointed because I thought he'd be a good fit. I was overjoyed when he signed 1 year later.

5. Pac, I have to admit thats his first few appearances in the league dissapointed me but last year, WOW! The guy was all over the place, cant wait for next year!

I also really love Kostitsyn
