NHL Psychology Test: Whats in a Name?

Even with optimism creeping through the hockey world, lets take a moment away from all of this lockout madness.

When you think of your favorite team, or any team for that matter, what is the first thing that pops into your mind? If you are like me its a player who stands out and represents that team to your mind’s eye.

I have a little exercise for you, which could tell many things about you as a hockey fan like the type of play style that you admire, to the generation of players that you grew up watching. The results are open to you for interpretation.

It is quite simple, just think of a hockey team, every team that is, and write down the first player or players that you think of. Go over the results and let us know in the comments below using WP, Facebook, or Twitter.

There is no right or wrong answer, just the first thing that pops into your head.

Here are my results.
