Non-Penguins you irrationally love

Postby MRandall25 on Sat Jul 28, 2012 8:39 pm

Going with the theme in PR, any players you've loved for no reason that weren't Penguins?

For me, Valeri Zelepukin and Billy Guerin (when he was with the Devils) are the 2 off the top of my head.

Jeff Beukeboom was awesome and John Vanbeisbroick is another name I thought was awesome growing up.

I remember going to a Blackhawks game in 2001 and being extremely disappointed that Eric Daze was playing. Him and Zhitnick were players I thought rocked.

Peter Bondra was quite possibly my favorite hockey player period growing up. Possibly only 2nd to Kovalev.

Nick Lidstrom was one of my favorite players for a long time. I used to try an model my game after him when I played hockey. I usually tried to wear his number as well in my younger days. The only reason I think its irrational is my hatred for the red wings.

No current players who aren't former Pens fit the bill, but I had SERIOUS love for Joe Sakic when he played. My second favorite player growing up. I call it irrational because I hated those Avs teams otherwise. Forsberg, Foote, Claude, etc. But I did enjoy the Avs destroying the Devils in Game 7 in '01.

Once rick tocchet became a penguin, dino ciccarelli became my favorite non-pen of all time.

There are some great names mentioned above. What i dont understand is lucic as 'irrational' love. The guy is awesome...nothing irrational about that beast.

The reason I like Lucic, has much less to do with his play, and a lot to do with his name's closeness to my last name.

Zach Parise
Chris Drury
Milan Heduk
Marek Svatos
Mike Ricci
Adam Deadmarsh
Adam Oates
Patrick Kane
Pat Lafontaine

I would say Svatos was the only irrational one.

I think the hatred of the Red Wings is probably the irrational part.
