Bruce Boudreau, Washington Capitals, 21% Which coach would you most like to play for? Dan Bylsma, Pittsburgh Penguins, 21% Who is the toughest forward to play against? Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins, 29% Which active player would you select to start a franchise? Sidney Crosby, Penguins, 69% Which active player is the best role model? Sidney Crosby, Penguins, 26% For goalies only: Which player is the most difficult to stop? Alex Ovechkin(notes), Capitals, 27% Who is the toughest to play against? Sidney Crosby, Penguins, 29% Who is the smartest player? Sidney Crosby, Penguins, 29% • CBC takes pains to note on its "best role model" question: "Interesting to note that has on-ice nemesis, Alex Ovechkin, did not get one mention in this list." CBC also notes in the "most difficult to stop" question: "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."
