Completely Superficial Post: My NHL All-Crush Team

If you know me, or follow me on Twitter, you know that I am a huge hockey fan. As I am typing this up I am flipping between the Panthers v. Devils,  Bruins v. Capitals and Coyotes v. Blackhawks games.

I appreciate a goalie standing on his head to save a game, an amazing breakaway that leads to the game winning goal and players sacrificing their bodies to block a shot…even a slap shot from the Bruins captain, Zedeno Chara.

Now that we are a week into the NHL playoffs, earlier this week Cosmopolitan Magazine released their “Hottest Guys of the NHL” list.  I saw it, tweeted it and then debated many of the guys on the list.  I mean Sidney Crosby?!  Really?  I do not know one female who finds him remotely attractive.  

At the urging of my friend Steve, I have complied my personal all crush team (current players only).  They include Olympians, All Stars, Stanley Cup Champions and, in my opinion, players that don’t get enough ice time. Oh, and all but 2 of these players are on playoff teams.

So feel free to comment, tell me I’m right, tell me I’m wrong.  The players are in no specific order, but I did leave the best for last.

    Nice picture of Bickel. Did you zoom in or were you up against the glass. If he look at you taking his pic or just looking in your direction?

    Nice picture of Bickle. Was he looking at you taking his picture as you were up against the glass? Or were you further back zoomed in and he was just looking in your direction?

    Just finished watching Flyers at Pens. Wow what a game, thought Crosby had his skates hung up for sure. But not just yet, I live in Winnipeg and we just got our Jets back this year so you know I love Hockey. Some great photos there in your piece, and I must agree nothing is finer than a team coming together in the playoffs.

    I just did a piece on my blog regarding the the NHL VS. the NFL you may like it.

    Happy Hockey
