Favorite TeamsThe New York Islanders. I have been a die-hard fan all of my life, however, I have truly grown to love the sport of hockey in all aspects. I love watching the Canadiens find success, as well as enjoying teams such as the Oilers and Red Wings.
Most Hated TeamsAs I said before, I love hockey too much to hate a team. Although I enjoy greatly when the Rangers lose, especially to the Islanders, I just truly enjoy watching a good hockey product on the ice. If I do hate one thing in hockey, it is an ignorant fan or journalist who refuses to see things from another teams point of view.
Favorite PlayersI have respect for a tremendous number of players, here are just a small number of them. Jarome Iginla for his class on and off the ice, Alexander Ovechkin for his pure love of the game and scoring, Richard Park for his work ethic that translates to success, many of the enforcers willing to give up their body for their team and a small number of minutes on the ice, and many others.
Most Hated PlayersSean Avery. It is not that I believe he is talentless, I just feel he is detrimental to the already weak image of hockey in the United States. If he would continue to run his mouth, slightly less, and demonstrate his skills on the ice more often, he could be a great player. Till he learns to do so, I must say I am against him.
Best Hockey MemoriesUnfortunately, I am only 20 and missed out on the best years of the Islanders. Because of that I will say the Islanders 2001-2002 Renaissance season is a great memory, my first Islander game against the Devils, Shawn Bates' penalty shot, my first experience watching a team win the Stanley Cup, the day I got season tickets.
As a hockey player, I compare to...Jarome Iginla. Obviously I am no where near as good as him, but I don't mind going hard at all times for my team, taking a hit, or doing whatever it takes to help the team. I score often, and register many assists as well.
