Sooooo, what do you guys think? My sister is obsessed with this guy and I think that he looks very good for a hockey player. He's not your stereotypical really ugly and scary hockey player that is in serious need of teeth and a shave (if you wanna see that look up Todd Bertuzzi) Nazzy's also a really good player! So, besides being gawjuss, hes got some skillz :blueeyedbaby: (He's never won the Stanley Cup, but that's because most the the players on the Canucks suck <_< )

Yes he's my favourite hockey player! I'm from Vancouver so I have to support the Canucks and he's the captain.

Yah I have some pics of Him and Forsberg when they were really young. I also have a picture of them both recieving keys to the city of örnsköldsvik. Yay! I'll post them sometime on monday though because I'm going to be very busy this weekend.
