Why not one of those poker "stars?" After all, Headline Sports, TSN and Rogers all seem to think it's a legitimate "sport" since they inundate us with those endless "tournaments." Or maybe some darts player.

Tell Hartsey that he needs Chris Cuthbert on defence and things will start to look up. He is a great team player and an awesome defenceman, thanks

Clearly Andrea Arlovski's trainer should have won the award...I mean after having seen what kind of training he puts this MMA fighter throught....its just crazy.

There can be no other...just look at the amount of air-time he got!

Mats Sundin!

Oh yeah, give him a senate seat too...so he can contemplate buying his next house.

Nobody famous that's for sure...

My vote is for my 73 year old uncle. He is asthmatic, diabetic, and an ex-smoker that started playing sports again after a heart attack. He now plays hockey 2 nights a week, runs 4 days a week in the summer, and started taking tae-kwan-do.

I like Iginla.

I'm no Calgary fan but as Iginla goes, so go the Flames.

Physical with finesse.

Not only a great athlete but a great leader too.

Kinda makes ya proud to be a Canajun eh?
