For goalies only: Which player is the most difficult to stop?
- S. Crosby: 24%
- S. Stamkos: 14%
- P. Datsyuk: 5% (tie)
- A.Semin, B.Richards 5% (tie)
Alex Ovechkin leads the way here, which in itself makes a lot of sense. You can imagine how difficult it is to face that shot.
The odd thing is that there are only four categories where Ovechkin is in the top five, and this is the only place where he is rated number one. On the other hand, Sidney Crosby gets mention in 10 separate categories and only once is he not in the top two.
These less than stellar numbers for Ovechkin are obviously a reflection of the less than extraordinary year he is having.

The responses were compiled by staff members of the NHLPA and forwarded to Hockey Night in Canada. 318 players responded to the questionnaire.
