    I would say I play like Jean-Sebastion Aubin.I'm a full-right goalie. I play with my stick side mostly closed down. This makes for a lot of shiots to the glove side which almost any full right goalies strong point.

    I do play D every now and then. I woukld say a poor mans Kenny Jonsson. I cant skate worth a damn and i dont have the shooting touch of Jonsson.I'd say he plays the body and such the same way as me though. He ositions himself on the ice much like I do. But when I play D I'm always the #6 or #5 dman. I'm not very good.

    Hmmm... NHL'ers, eh? That's going to be tough...

    While I've played the game since I was old enough to skate, I can't think of one single N.H.L. player whom I play like the most... so I guess I'll just break it down:

    Skating: Peter Worrell
    Shooting/Goal Scoring: A 'poor man's' Mattius Norstrom
    Passing/Playmaking: Krzysztof Oliwa
    Stickhandling: Jim Sandlak
    Defense: Pavel 'freaking' Bure!
    Physical Play: Steve Kariya

    That sums me up pretty well. I usually just skip the list and say that I play like Lumme in his last year as a Leaf.

    I always thought I played like Tyson Nash, a little chippy while managing to piss off everyone. With no offensive game at all.. :|

    I'm about the same size, 6'4 230lbs and I certainly use my size to my advatage but I'm no butterfly goalie. In fact I probably depend on my size and flexibility a little too much and leave myself in some awkward positions when I have to stretch and can't recover.

    But when I am on.... well I finished the season with 4 shutouts and a GAA of 3.10 in a men's league where defense was a rare commodity and the average was 4.51.

    Bobby Orr (sorta)

    Remember that famous picture of Orr scoring the OT goal vs. St Louis in 1970 to win the cup?

    Now picture me, nowhere near the net, flying through the air (just like Bobby) only not scoring a goal, and not really close to the play. :sarcasm: :D

    After last night, I found myself to be playing like Felix Potvin......way too deep in the net with no puck handling skills!

    Some people told me that I looked alot like Joe Sakic on the ice. I used to play a more agitator style but now I'm an offensive player so maybe they are right. I have great skating skills and my shot is deadly and my passes are pretty accurate. I also have have some great stickhanlding skills.

    I got the Wade Redden comparison from my teammates - seems fair enough, a compliment really.. Steady-freddy defenceman.
