Think hockey's getting more popular?
Hey, Versus' hockey highlights are advertised on Comcast's On Demand now. And I see that (damn) Amp Energy drink commercial with Ryan Miller on like 20 channels. (Well, maybe not 20. I don't watch that many. I don't even watch that much TV... But it's out there!)
Wooo, go hockey!
2nd QUESTION: Do you agree that hit is the best all-time? If not, what hit was better? (Remember, I love YouTube links. Lol.)
So... when can you start? :P
(Was that Pierre Maguire I heard commentating?? How could you do this to me??)
Phaneuf gets called a punk or whatever, but he just tries not to take penalties after someone gets mad because he makes a big hit. (Hmm, I do think I'd like to see him drop the gloves more during the regular season though.) People already hate him---that's how good he is and how good his hits are.
Sidney Crosby's welcome to the 2006-07 season was Forsberg sticking him in the face over some refs: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ldg5NqpXAmA
(I love how he's talking to Sid and starts to ease up his grip... than makes one final attempt to kill him. Ahaha.)
If you're hatin' Forsberg a lot particularly one day, watch this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=IVZzL_57C48
Anyway, you said dirtiest hit which is ironic because I was going to bring up Kasparaitis. I'm sure a handful of his would be good nominations. (Though personally, Ulf Samuelsson on Neely is THE dirtiest I've ever seen.) I couldn't help but think of this one from Turin, which I think is actually clean: http://youtube.com/watch?v=LjW7qK2BiBo&f...
Hip-on-knee. I remember seeing all kinds of pictures of Gagne flying through the air.
But oh man Zap, there's too good of a chance that the Pens will play the Rangers in Round 2. I'm wary (especially of Lundqvist and NY's D) and yet really excited. LITY asked a question about whether or not Avery could contain Crosby & Malkin and all the answers got me pumped up for that showdown. If that's the matchup, I'll have to obnoxiously send you Sidney Crosby highlight videos before the series starts. :P
