Star Wars -NHL style
So with everyone calling Landeskog 'Lando' I started filling the Star Wars roster with NHLers... and then I thought, this would be more fun if it wasn't just me doing it by my lonesome.
So some prelimanary nominations:
Luke Skywalker played by:
Princess Leia played by: Carey "Fisher" Price
Han Solo played by:
Chewbacca played by: Bret Burns (no shocker there eh!)
Darth Vader played by: Gary Bettman - Prairie Dog
The Emperor played by:
C3P0 played by: Brad Richards - Chili Con Carne
R2-D2 played by: Martin St. Louis (the colours and size are close)
Obi-Wan Kenobi played by:
Lando Calrissian played by: Gabriel Landeskog (duh)
Yoda played by: Selanne - Nikw71
Jabba the Hut played by: Dustin Byfuglien - Carcillo (btw, loved this one!)
The Emperor played by: Gary Bettman
Luke Skywalker played by Luke Walker of the Colorado Avalanche
Yoda - Selanne. Oldest player in the NHL and a legend at that
Darth Vader - Hard to argue he is the most hated in the NHL. Lucic could be as well since he may be the strongest player in the NHL and is a mind**** to all teams especially Buffalo
C3PO played by Brad Richards - similar (dull) personalities.
Jabba the Hut - Dustin Byfuglien
Darth Maul: Clarkson (bad guy - and the jersey colors are simlpy extended over the face as well..)
Mace Windu : Iginla, hands down
Darth Sidious: Sid(ious) the Kid
BTW: This is abit off topic, but since we're talking similarities between movie characters and NHL players:
Did anyone else watching Zero Dark Thirty also see HARTNELL's twin in that senior CIA torturer (the one who likes monkeys and keeps repeating "if you lie to me, I hurt you"? Same face, same haircut (or rather uncut) :)
Emperor: Khabibulin... just look at the face...

"Lando" played by Tim Thomas... You want him on your side just as much as you can't trust him...he's unpredictable...but he's got no love for the Empire(WhiteHouse).
In Star Wars Episode 4 (or the first movie for us older guys)... when R2D2, C3P0 are lining up to be sold to Luke and his Uncle by the JAWAs, they decide to invest their money on the Preceived Flasher White and Red R2 Unit...
No sooner do they exchange money for the droid...he busts a Nut, flips his lid and starts smoking...
Quite Clearly.... Played by.....
wait for it ....
wait forrrrr ittttt...
Coolest Bounty Hunter of the Bunch...Boba Fet.
Comes on strong...has all the potential in the world. This guy comes on strong and as quickly as he makes his mark...he dies a anti-climactic death by being swallowed up by that Sand Worm to be digested over 1000 years...never to be seen from or heard from Again.
Played by Radulov.
