On Tuesday, Cosmopolitan released their 2013 list of hottest hockey players. Apparently, the way they decided to create the list was to have their readers nominate a hottie from each team.
So, the Rangers representative is obviously Henrik Lundqvist...right? I mean you can't have a hottest hockey player list and not include Hank. Right? I guess you can, as teammate Brian Boyle was chosen over the sexy Swede...
Brian Boyle, New York Rangers
Brian is hot. Brian all sweaty? Yummy.
Guess, I'm not the only one shocked by this development as Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy just assumed Cosmopolitan deemed Lundqvist "so sexy that his sexiness exists beyond the boundaries of this list."
Harrison Mooney also at Puck Daddy went a bit further...
"anyone that ranks hockey's studliest studs and omits Henrik Lundqvist forfeits all authority on the matter...If your hot hockey player list allows in any way for the omission of Henrik Lundqvist, you need to fix your list."
Cosmo responded by blaming their readers for the vote and added this on Lundqvist's sexiness...
"So let's talk about that. No question about it, Henrik is hot. In fact, we'll go so far as to say he's really freaking hot. The man's hair always looks good, he dresses better than celebs who get paid to look stylish for a living, and he's so talented it's crazy. Not only that, the man plays guitar. Seriously—could he get any cooler?"
...this is the last draw, I'm canceling my subscription.
...seriously, what women were surveyed for this list? Blind ones? And that's not a dig at Boyle, it's an indictment on how good looking Lundqvist is. Cosmo would have been better off surveying guys for the list, because no way we would have omitted the King.
...btw, can you imagine the trash talk from Boyle to Lundqvist in the locker room?
Boyle's a cutie BUT no one and I mean no one is hotter than Lundqvist. The eyes, the smile, the guitar, and for god's sake he's the GOALIE...
This list trumps Cosmo's list any day of the week: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/0804/nhl.players.resembling.entertainers/content.1.html
Hmmmm ... that's a tough one. I'd be happy with them both, honestly. But Lundqvist, pretty or not, is smokin hot.
@thenyrblogneill You should see my @ reply on Twitter. Bunch of guys debating who's hotter. Hysterical.
what a joke. henny is the best looking human in the league. what a sham. this is what waiting for opening night has demoted us to.
I like me some Boyle... Hank is to stylish for me and he wears skinny jeans... Love him as our goalie, but I will take Boyle everytime!
I love how indignant you are about this. Haha but seriously I wish this poll came out during 24/7 Boyle would have been unbearable
The even bigger travesty is that Scott Hartnell and Phil Kessel (!!!) made the list. Phil Kessel! IMO, the best commentary on this has come from the ladies at WUYS. Extremely witty. http://www.whatsupyasieve.com/2013/01/10/cosmo-aint-got-nothin/
I don't expect quality hockey commentary from Cosmo (or its readers), but you would think they could properly pick out the hot guys. And I'm sorry, there's room for debate... but not about Kessel. Dear god.
@queensbee Phil Kessel looks like the product of Chuckie and Alfred E. Newman and then if that baby got kicked in the head by mule.
@queensbee The WUYS girls hit the nail on the head with their commentary. Love their blog!
