Hamhuis, but that actually sucked because he hurt himself on the hit and was out the rest of the series.

Both dirty and pretty dangerous "checks". For the same reason I didn't like Ballard's hit against SJ.

These are the kind I like. I'm not a big fan of using your hip (whether you go low or not) to cut out a guys legs along the boards. Hip on hip is always a beauty.

To me a hip check is when you match a guys speed and simply derail him by getting your hip on his hip. Perfectly executed here, much like the Sullivan one I posted before

Yeah im not sure i would call the "guy coming to hit me so i will duck and send him flying over me" a real hip check, the ones i enjoy are when an offensive player is skating hard into the zone and the dman matches his speed skating backwards cuts of the angle then bang! It's such a risky play because if you miss ur out of the play!

Considering:

1) Ballard delivers 6x the hips checks as Hamhuis

2) Majority of the players Ballard hits get right back up

3) The videos above show otherwise.

I fully disagree. Ballard is aces at hip checks.

Andy Greene does it, though it's rare.

His hit on Salo was NOT a hip check. He faked like he was going for the puck.

those are great hipchecks! aside from the fact that they aren't hipchecks and extremely dirty bridges, which one of them suspended Marchand for like 5 games or something.

Yeah I agree those are terrible examples. Boychuk and Seidenberg have executed some nice clean hipchecks, these ones were basically dangerous tapletops/bridges

Hall's suspension wasn't an attempted hip check. How often is there a hip check when skating directly at the other player? I don't think the hit was intentionally malicious, but it was just a dangerous play when there was no legit hit to be had.
