Hockey Night in Canada and the NHLPA conducted a survey of active players in the NHL, kind of a "fun All-Star Break" thing. You can check out the whole poll here, but having read it, I thought I'd specifically list the times our Rangers are named for you.
First of all, awesome:
Which team would you most like to play for?
4. New York Rangers (9%)
(Behind Detroit, Vancouver, and Chicago)
These two make an excellent juxtaposition:
Which rink has the worst ice?
2. Madison Square Garden (14%)
Which is your favorite rink to play in?
2. Madison Square Garden (9%)
Torts made it a couple of times:
Which coach demands the most of his players?
1. John Tortorella (28%)
Which coach would you least like to play for?
2. John Tortorella (15%)
Then, the players:
Which goalie is the most difficult to score on?
4. Henrik Lundqvist (14.8%)
Who is the toughest player?
1. Derek Boogaard (23%)
No, seriously. Leaps and bounds above second place, Colton Orr, at 9%.
And a pair of confidence boosters for Gabby:
Who is the best skater?
1. Marian Gaborik (26%)
Who is the league's fastest skater?
1. Marian Gaborik (37%)
Finally, it's not Ranger-related specifically, but I thought I'd share the results of the Who is the best referee? poll:
5. Tim Peel (7%)
4. Wes McCauley (9%)
3. Bill McCreary (10%)
2. Kelly Sutherland (13%)
1. None (15%)
That is all.
