Being a professional hockey player certainly has its perks. Relatively lucrative salary and endorsement deals, along with often substantial signing bonuses, competitive on-ice battles, team camaraderie, and all of the glory that accompanies just being a professional athlete. One of the aspects of said glory must be the super human, heroic ability to get hot girls to agree to be your girlfriend.
NHL players have very hot girlfriends (and wives), as a general rule. Their ability to command the ice, skate effectively, and strategically work together in order to score goals translates seamlessly to regular life. Hockey players have the requisite strength, courage, and stamina to land the hottest girls. I’m sure not everyone in the world can agree that hockey is the greatest sport ever (although I believe it most certainly is), most everyone can agree that the following women are exceedingly hot.
One of my favorite games to play, particularly between hockey games (and sometimes during half time) is “Who’s Hotter? NHL Edition.” This deliciously lovely game encourages staring intently at two objective realities — the level of hotness of two NHL players’ girlfriends or wives — and comparing them. Making a decision is vital (i.e. you can’t simply say “they’re both hot”), and conclusions must be drawn and subsequently discussed. Let’s begin.
Emma Anderson — model, actress, singer, and winner of Sweden’s version of Survivor — is the lovely arm candy and fiance of the Detroit Red Wings’ Henrik Zetterberg. Long, dark hair, great beach body, and talent — this chick has it all.
Elisha Cuthbert — Canadian film and television actress — is girlfriend to the Maples Leaf’s captain, Dion Phaneuf — and she is blazingly attractive. Blond haired, blue eyed, petite, and in a word — delicious. Though Sean Avery of the Dallas Stars stirred up some drama by announcing Phaneuf had settled for his own “sloppy seconds” (referring to his previous relationship with Cuthbert), I would vehemently “settle” for his seconds any day.
The choice for me is easy — Elisha, please marry me?!! — but I tend to prefer blonds. Do you agree? Disagree? Comment during your next break from NHL 2012. (If only we could get girls like Elisha by being great at playing NHL 2012.)
