Dan Girardi's Insane Facial Scar
 
Okay so this may be a small and silly topic, but when and how the hell did Girardi get that bad ass scar across his face? I must have blinked or something. I noticed it about a week and a half ago and have been wondering ever since.

Also does anyone have a picture of Girardi with his scar? I can't find one and I want to use it for our "it's just pain" theme. :nod:

Dan Girardi is a ****ing hero, and all ****ing hero's have a badass scar across their face from something heroic.

It's usable but I'm looking for something more focused on his face if at all possible. :P

Why don't all players wear visors?!??!

SlingshotVv 04-13-2011 05:09 PM

because it seems most high sticks come from a motion from the ice level up, not from shoulder level on, and the visor doesn't offer any protection from below.

many players feel it makes those slashes more dangerous because it actually corrals what might be an errant blade right into the face.

i can't believe the NHL doesn't just go to cages already. The sport is too fast for the current protection, and I'm more than tired of high sticking penalties, and players not being able to play the puck out of the air with their sticks.

I mean, I think it's an option best left up to the player. I know I don't use a shield when I'm not forced to because of increased vision. Guys still weren't even wearing helmets well into the 90s.

Hell, goalies used to not wear any protection on their face and they were up against 115mph+ slap shots with (what are now) illegally curved sticks.

Keep it an option but don't make it mandatory.

they showed it on tsn after the boston game. he was down in the corner and I think it was Krecji's stick came up and then they showed him getting hit with a Chara's shot.

Bulls9220 04-13-2011 06:57 PM

I have the stick hitting his face on my phone. I got angry. Ill post it after the period.

Bulls9220 04-13-2011 07:05 PM

well I have one from pheonix where the stick is clearly in his face.

Lol I got one doing a face plant on ice. I suck at skating but it looks bad ass. :laugh:

When he got hit in the Pens game, it looked like a string was hanging from the top of his helmet.

Yes, indeed..... chicks do dig scars. I've had a nice prominent one on my left cheek since I was seven years-old.

No one came close to 100 mph when goalies weren't wearing masks.
The only player I believe to do it was Iafrate and he was a freak of nature. Plus goalies were wearing masks for a long time by then.
Composite sticks made shots in the NHL what they are today.

Yes they did. I personally knew two minor league players (Jimmy LeBar and Doug Volmar) who's shots were timed over 100 MPH. There were others.

Bird Law 04-15-2011 01:01 AM

Most of the 100+ MPH shots also came in a time with sketchy radar guns.

The illegal curves didn't increase the speed of shots it just made the puck harder for the goalie to pick up because it had odd spin on it

im no expert but the curve helps with the lift on the puck, which is what makes it dangerous to the face and stuff....i personally have to use a fairly flat curve (zetterberg) because those crazy banana curves make it impossible for me to do saucer passes where i want them to go. velocity has increased due to composite stick materials and insane flex you can get on a stick nowadays...

al macginnis never used a composit stick and he shot the puck over 100mph. the curve doesn't effect the velocity of the shot, just the lift (as someone else pointed out), so certainly players should shoot the puck that hard even before curved blades.

I wonder if Kareem type glasses would be better. Protects the eyes from a stick / puck, like safety glasses but cooler

cars didn't have airbags back in the day so we shouldn't put them in new ones, right?
