    What Current Player Do You Secretly Love?

    Any criteria.

    I'd say mine is Tom Wilson, but that's no secret. So I'll go with Malkin. Incredibly fun to watch, even if his team is the shits.

    Kadri.
    Fuck the hate. Let em play.
    Neither of those are secrets though, so maybe John Moore. I root for the dude.

    Same. My alternate is Patrice Bergeron. Incredible player.
    I also have a bit of forbidden man-love for Sean Couturier *runs*

    Barzal -

    Not really secrets...
    The New Jersey Taylor Halls provided some 'holy shit' exciting offense every game.
    Nate Mac kinda dominated each game in a different way, but just as fun to watch.

    This is easy for me: Ovi. Guy plays the game the right way every night and his reaction to lifting the cup was the best I've seen since Bourque.

    Agree re: McDavid. I can NEVER like Taylor Hall because of something he said to one of my friends (female) when we ran in to him at a bar in Hoboken. I won't post it because, though any claim for defamation is defeated by the statement being true, I can't prove it other than witnessing it. And written slander = libel. Suffice to say something deeply inappropriate and highly offensive was said to a girl who was just excited to see him (she's a Devils fan).

    I know this is supposed to be about current players, but I can't address the subject of secretly loving a player without mentioning BOBBY ORR. You can't imagine how loathed he was, keeping us from winning the cup and instead delivering it twice to a team we hated even more than the Islanders dynasty era team. And you had to secretly love him. The fact that he was and is a tremendously decent man didn't help.
