Patrick Marleau's a heck of a good skater, Douglas Murray is tough to play against, and its not very easy to take the puck away from Joe Thornton.

So says a poll of NHL players conducted by the NHLPA and CBCs Hockey Night in Canada.

The results of the annual survey were recently revealed, with several Sharks players getting some props from their peers. Marleau was ranked as the leagues third best skater; Thornton is the fifth hardest player to take the puck from, while Murray is the sixth hardest blue liner to play against.

Todd McLellan was on the list, too, ranked sixth among coaches that the players would most like to play for.
