I hate when people compare Datsyuk to God. I mean, sure he's good, but he's not as good as Datsyuk.


Yeah really. God has no puck skills whatsoever.

Cleanest Players
This one makes me so proud to be a wings fan.


I am slightly surprised by the Zetterberg votes. It has nothing to do with that collision from the CBJ game. In my view Z isn't afraid to get a little chippy and dirty with some hacks and whacks here and there. The two that bring that out of him the best I think are Kesler, Backes and maybe Crosby.

Crosby only finished a few percentage points behind Lidstrom as "best role model"
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

2. Sidney Crosby 16%
3. Nicklas Lidstrom 15%
4. Jonathan Toews 4%
5. Claude Giroux 3%
6. Henrik Sedin 2%


Smartest meaning hockey sense. I can fathom Nick and Sid being comparable but I don't know if Pav is THAT much ahead of either of those two.

Which goalie is the most difficult to score on?

1. Henrik Lundqvist 38%
2. Pekka Rinne 19%
3. Tim Thomas 16%
4. Carey Price 5%
5. Mikka Kiprusoff 3%
6. Jimmy Howard 3%


I'm a little surprised that Jimmy made this list. Not Jimmy himself or his abilities but that other players regarded him in that way.

Which player is the most difficult to stop?

1. Pavel Datsyuk 24%
2. Steven Stamkos 12%
3. Sidney Crosby 12%
4. Alexander Semin 12%
5. Nathan Gerbe 6%
6. Evgeni Malkin 6%


Semin and Gerbe? Someone want to explain that to me?

Which team is overrated?

1. Vancouver Canucks 24%
2. Toronto Maple Leafs 18%
3. Washington Capitals 15%
4. New York Rangers 9%
5. Ottawa Senators 4%
6. Pittsburgh Penguins 4%


Now this is a funny result.

Who is the best referee?

1. Paul Devorski 19%
2. Kelly Sutherland 15%
3. Wes McCauley 13%
4. Dan Van Massenhoven 9%
5. Stephen Walkom 6%
6. Kyle Hehman 6%


No Dan O'Halloran? Brad Watson? Denis LaRue? Shocking.

Which rink has the best ice?

1. Rexall Place Edmonton 47%
2. Bell Centre Montreal 15%
3. Joe Louis Detroit 10%
4. Rogers Arena Vancouver 5%
5. MTS Centre Winnipeg 5%
6. Scotiabank Saddledome 3%


I've always had the perception that players complain a lot about the ice at JLA because the building is so old and whatever.

Which rink has the worst ice?

1. Bank Atlantic Center Florida 18%
2. Tampa Bay Times Forum Tampa Bay 11%
3. Honda Center Anaheim 11%
4. Staples Center Los Angeles 8%
5. Madison Square Gardens New York 8%
6. American Airlines Center Dallas 6%


Hmm...

What team would you most like to play for?

1. Chicago Blackhawks 14%
2. Detroit Red Wings 13%
3. Boston Bruins 11%
4. Toronto Maple Leafs 8%
5. Montreal Canadiens 6%
6. Tampa Bay 5%


Nice.

If you haven't seen that one, have you seen the "Spotlight" episodes for Lidstrom and Zetterberg? The one for Zetterberg was my favorite for sure. I have them on VHS somewhere in my Mom's or Dad's or sister's house. I gotta get those up someday or at least hand them to someone more inclined for that kind of stuff.

Not sure, but I probably haven't. Would be great to see for sure, I love these in-depth looks at players.
