Sopel was awesome, not to mention his wife posting s*** everytime we made fun of his fish-ness.

Obvious answer to this question is Matt Walker imo; there were worse players but they got less ice time

Very true. Those 3 I guess were just so un-remember-able, along with many others.

Mine is easily Sopel. Great guy, but holy **** was he done. Awful, awful hockey player. Ton of heart. Cullimore and Ellison are close runner ups.

Andrew Ebbett was the worst skater for Hawks in recent memory

Hell his only goal was because Campbell intentionally shot puck off him and into net

This would be better than any fight or hard hit laid on Torres.

Bollig doesn't get near the respect he should as far as him being a hockey player. He is not a waste of a spot, and I actually prefer him in the line-up over Mayers. Maybe the spot would better be served for one of the Hogs, but Bollig can play at the NHL level in a limited role. He is a better hockey player than John Scott, not that it says a lot for him

Sopel was slow and towards the end of career but I liked the guy. He laid his body on the line every night.

I still remember the a game I was at against Dallas where he pretty much killed off a 5 on 3 PP by himself. Several shot blocks and a diving hand clear. Also the casual way he glided through the offensive zone in Game 5 against Nashville, passed it off which eventually led to the game winning goal.

There has been much worse than Sopel on this team the past five years.

I am far from a casual fan and I never want to see fighting banned. I don't see why people hate it so much. If there was no reason to do it, players wouldn't do it and the league wouldn't allow it. Once fighting gets banned, sure you don't get the staged fights, but then players son't be able to go to the defense of their teammates without quite a harsh penalty. Would you like to see Keith spending 10-15 minutes in the box for going to the aid of Mayers the other game? Absolutely stupid.

I agree. If the guy made 1mil, people would of liked him more I think. He was nothing special at all, but gave 100% most of the time, and was effective in the playoffs when we won the cup.

Worst skater of recent memory has to be Pisani, followed closely by Sopel and Jassen "I suck" Cullimore.

I don't think anyone here wants fighting gone, just the meaningless staged fights. Those serve zero purpose to me.

If we are talking about atrocious skaters, Zyuzin and Brunette were awful.

he's not bad at hockey which is why i hate him so much. takes himself off the ice for absolutely no reason.

and i don't want fighting gone, but the kind of staged fights bollig gets in (and doesn't look too great in) are completely stupid.

In what sense?

Dude blocked about 6,749 shots the year we won the Cup. He was important to that effort. He played a role that no one else wanted to.

Overpaid? I'd give you that, but waste of a roster spot? No chance.


EDIT: Sorry - worst skater? Agreed he's up there.
