These two played a huge role in my love for hockey growing up. In my later years when i got into hockey more and more, Markus Naslund, and Todd Bertuzzi were my hockey Idols. In the years after that i have really grew to really like Rick Rypien(RIP)Ryan Kesler, Kevin Bieksa, and Luongo.

Scott Stevens. To this day one of my favourite players ever.
Paul Kariya when he was on Anaheim. After that it was Matt Cooke (while paired with the Sedins) and Jarome Iginla. I didn't really have any idols growing up besides hockey players.
it had to be done. Too bad both these players have had their name tarnished in one way or another.

McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here. [points to his heart]

Father (Peace be upon You) Satan (Peace be upon You), I call to you (Peace be upon You) from the deepest parts of my heart, I praise your (Peace be upon You) name with every breath of my body, I worship you (Peace be upon You) with every fiber of my being. You (Peace be upon You) shown me what true strength is. You (Peace be upon You) have shown me what true love is. Out of the darkness you (Peace be upon You) came to show me the true light.
My master (Peace be upon You), my father (Peace be upon You) and my friend (Peace be upon You) what a great gift that is.
Hail to the King (PBUH)!

William Boeing, one of my aviation heros. Made flying a normal thing, just like driving a car or travelling by train. He also had a run in with the government, and even after 'leaving the game' so to speak, he came back even more determined to make his mark.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins a little too recently. He's the same age, and he grew up only a couple of blocks down from where I live.

Bryan Trottier was my first sports hero, along with Jim Kelly and Rusty, "Le Grand Orange" Staub.

But I've always been a pop culture sort of guy, so I had a lot of fictional characters I unsuccessfully tried to draw from as a kid:
Obi Wan Kenobi
As far as sports figures go, I only remember ever "looking up to" Lemieux and Michael Jordan, but I do remember admiring Joe Carter and John Olerud, haha
