    I'm talking about guys that get a lot media coverage and give great quotes, who show personality in the interviews etc. Players who are fan favourites but not necessarily just for their play. Not talking about the likes of McDavid, Matthews and Crosby who have a personality of a rock.

    From this list, it is definitely Ovechkin especially when he was younger , he was most covered hockey player in the world with great and funny personality. He is the Magic Johnson of NHL. Nowadays, not so much but he still would be on top of my list, Subban close 2nd

    Barkov seems to be the most universally liked

    I think a lot of Bruins fans still don't like him due to the Montreal days

    I have definitely come around to like him personally

    Kessel seems the most liked to me, at least of that group, probably just because he seems like a regular human being and is relatable

    Why would you vote for two then? Take the last option, like you did and bring up other players. Way to many people vote in these polls, even when they're not sure of what the other players are doing.

    Subban, Ovi, and Karlsson. Based on the NHL Personality videos and the very limited amount of players that did them, it's Karlsson, Seguin, Scheifele, and Skinner. I feel like I'm forgetting some from those too, but they all easily stood out to me. Never really hear anyone that hates those guys. Evgeni Malkin was hilarious in those videos too but I can't tell if he is actually funny or if his accent just makes some things come off as a joke or sound funny. Either way he seems like a cool guy

    Maybe guys like Luongo, Johnny Hockey, Crosby (ok he's boring but he is the man)

    Subban is a character I personally quite like him, most of the other guys up there are dry as sand.

    I voted for one, PK, the other option was "other".

    Subban, Ovi, Kessel in that order. Laine is making his way up there.

    Oh my mistake, I guess I was just trying to fill all 3. I don't think he is particularly likable.

    I agree. Hes like this generation of Datsyuk in terms of fan love. No one has said anything bad about him, and he also says nothing for anyone to dislike him. Him and Datsyuk actually dont speak.

    Yes to all. Not sure this is a poll so much as discussion.

    From this list I went with Subban, Ovechkin and Burns. Pretty much well-liked across the board. Fun personalities.

    Laine and Marner don’t have the extensive fan followings yet bc it’s early. Kessel is a bit reserved. Karlsson flies under the radar a bit being in Ottawa

    My answer is Puljujarvi. A big, goofy kid who is always smiling and giving those hilarious interviews.

    Marner is the most random poll choice I've ever seen. I don't think he gets covered anywhere else than in Toronto.
