# Most Popular Hab 2008-2009

## Recommended Posts

There was a good participation rate for this contest/game last year so I thought I’d bring it back for the upcoming season. The goal is to determine which 2008-2009 Hab is the most popular and to have fun in the process.

Definition:

When we say most popular, it doesn’t necessarily mean the best hockey player, but rather the player you like best , no matter what your reasons are. Maybe he’s your favorite because he’s the most spectacular, because he gives his all every game, because he’s a good ambassador, because he’s the most productive, because he gives good interviews, because he bleeds red white and blue, even because you think he’s the cutest… don’t be shy to give your reasons with your votes, it’s all in good fun!

So, don’t vote for the one you think will win but vote for the one you like best! There are no wrong answers.

How it works:

• The most popular Hab will be the winner of a 1 on 1 tourney type of voting contest. Eligible players are the 16 who will have the most points at the end of this preliminary round (details further down). Players are still eligible even if they leave the team before the end of this game.

• All the face offs will be established according to voting results in preceding rounds.

• As I did last year, I will open one thread per round and will not use the Poll feature of the forum. You can vote and comment as many times as you wish but only your first vote will be compiled.

• Rounds will be open from one Saturday to the next, after I count the votes both on the English and French side of the forum.

Preliminary round:

You need to rank by order of your preference the 22 players currently listed on the roster by writing the rank number beside the player’s name (1 is your favorite, 22 is your least favorite).

The players will get 22 points for 1st rank, 21 points dor 2nd rank, etc. The 16 players with the most point total will move on to the 1 vs 1 match ups.

Here is the list (in alphabetical order) that you can quote for ease of voting. Don’t be shy to add your comments too.

Kind of weird to put numbers to these guys 'cause I like em all but...guess that's my mindset. However I feel each player brings something special to the team, which kind of makes me uncomfortable placing numbers next to them ^^; Oh well, it's just for fun after all.

It's just for fun indeed. It will be less weird when the 1 vs 1 match-ups start next week.

When does the next round start?

The rounds go from one Saturday to the next to give enough time for as many people as possible to participate. First round with the 'top 16' starts Sept 6.

Can I put my list here even if I post it on the french side?

Of course you can but I count only one participation.

This was really hard (I like some players the same (same batch) but...best I could do. This could change once the preseason/season starts.
