I thought it would be fun speculating about each individuals favorite players agency. Personally I would choose Creative Artist Agency found by Pat Brisson and J.P Barry reason being: they aren't as big as Newport Sports and therefore the personal maintenance should be even better plus CAA is the second most powerful agency in the NHL, so they for sure have the power to negotiate great contracts for their clients and won't bow to lowball offers or deal with their clients being treated poorly (i.e Luongo).

since i am not a professional athlete or hollywood star, i have no clue. No offence, but that is like asking "who is your favourite cricket player".

Hardly, there is definately some information about the agencies and how they are dealing with their clients. I.e Titansports didn't knew that a matched offersheet means the matching-team doesn't have to add NMC/NTC clauses, otherwise Titansports would have done a better job in telling Nashville not to match the os.

And the Ryan suter / Zach parise charity fund means any player who wants a contract takes way longer than they should to take home an overly large sum of money, but also often overplay their hand.

Brassard is represented by Craig Osther of Newport Sports. Imagine the New York Rangers without him, their center depth after Stepan would have been atrocious and the team would also been as soft as the Wings. Brassard brings some intangibles and they did pay for 4 UFA years, that's going to cost you. Is he overpaid ? Yes, but only by 0,5k with an ever rising cap that's not much.

Kent Hughes - the agent for Pouliot - is hired by MFive Sports (didn't ever hear of them before).
