Survey Results: Most / Least Attractive Players on the Colorado Avalanche

One of my responsibilities at work is to build and analyze surveys.  From time to time, new features are made available in our survey software and I get to run test surveys among my co-workers to figure out how it works.

In seemingly unrelated news, earlier this week, NHL teams, including the Colorado Avalanche, released their yearly headshots.  (PS – check out Brett Burns!!!)

Question: What happens when you mix test surveys and Avalanche headshots?  Answer: Blogging magic.

I surveyed 14 women and asked them to rate the hotness of each Avalanche player on a zero to 50 scale, using this year’s headshots.  Its important to note that most of the survey takers were not hockey fans – so the players talent level was not a factor (which the results show).

So, without further adieu…


3. Chuck Kobasew: Direct quote from one survey taker:  “I am publicly announcing that Kobasew is dreamy with those broken eyes.”

2. Steve Downie: Must be the long hair…

The most attractive Avs player is:

1. Gabriel Landeskog: Freakin’ Swedes.  BTW – If you ever want to be angry with God, just consider Landeskog’s fellow countryman Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist – not only is he talented enough to be one of the very best goalies in the world, he’s also unbelievably attractive (just ask your girlfriend).  I’d gladly take one of those things.


3. Jamie McGinn: Sorry, Jamie.  You are more attractive than two other players on the team, but less attractive than that ginger Cody McLeod.

2. Milan Hejduk: I guess its hard to hang with the young guys when you’re the old man on the team in more ways than one.

The least attractive Avs player is:

1. Greg Zanon: The Avs blogosphere might be in love with your epic beard, but the ladies are not.
