Corey Crawford — Blastoise

Blastoise is a very large water Pokemon that has two actual water cannons on the back of a shell. It stands very tall and would be difficult to back down.

Crow has spent parts of the last few seasons putting out his teammates’ fires, so it’d be appropriate for him to be a Pokemon with water-blasting capabilities. He’s also stood really tall in net on multiple occasions, doubling his Blastoise comparison.

Brent Seabrook — Snorlax

From the article I linked near the top of this post: “Snorlax is the sleeping Pokemon. It only wakes up to eat.” Consider one of Seabs’ nicknames is “Nachos” and that he may have been slowed down last season, in part, by a bit of a struggle keeping off weight, and you’ve got a hilariously mean comparison.

Marcus Kruger — Porygon

Porygon essentially looks like a bunch of building blocks put together, and it is very unique in that way. It is extremely rare to find a Porygon in the wild, like it’s extremely rare to find a hockey player who can do what Kruger does — take defensive-zone starts and move the puck the right way.

Porygon is also able to blend into a number of situations, almost chameleon-like. Kruger is like this as well, in that he’ll show up as a goal scorer when you least expect it. He can adapt to any situation and make himself useful.
