So you posted a snarky reply to a legitimate comment because you were too lazy to check the video you posted in your own thread?


The YT you posted is Trevor Linden making a pass to Bure that wasn't even slightly special.

Whenever I think of great assists this comes to mind. For a few reasons obviously but Lecavalier made two spin moves, cut back inside on his guy, deked through the legs of another defender, kicked the puck back to his stick and made a perfect pass to Fedotenko to shoot, and took the big hit to make the play. It was also the Stanley Cup GWG.



Horrible quality vid though lol.

I'm a Flyers fan, but this one (@ 0:22) has always stuck with me. Lemieux saucers to someone (LeClair?) who spins it over to Crosby. I wasn't even mad.

Bobby Orr on the rush, gets knocked down and while on the ice uses his elbow to push the puck up to his stick so he can feed a teammate who comes absolutely out of nowhere. Also, no helmet.

Can't believe this hasn't been posted yet. TSN goal of the year I believe and remarkable from start to finish.

There was one from an All-Star game (so there wasn't too much defense) and I used to have that game on VHS (but my sister recorded over it!) I remember where it was the duo of Sakic and Kariya playing together and I believe it was Kariya skating with the puck faking the slapshot before slipping the puck between his legs where it just stayed there for about 2 seconds before Sakic just hammered the puck past Cechmanek in goal. Loved that goal so much that my friends and I would try to recreate it in every street hockey game we played.

Kane spin-o-rama to Hossa is my favourite I would say

Forsberg made some insane passes

Its extraordinarily impressive by Crosby, but I just dont get how anyone can watch it and knock Spezza (and people do for that play all the time)
I don't think Spezza did everything he could to contain him. In the end it's the other players fault for getting a little memorized by Sid & let's face it some poor goaltending. If the options were letting Sid have the puck down low or pass to the point you take the pass to the point.

LOL, yeah. Seriously gift wrapped that goal for him. D and the King bit hard on the windup and Marty pulled the string on them all.

Always loved that goal...

This pass from RNH to Eberle reminded me of that play.



You get a better view of the pass in this video @ 2:05

While techinically not an assist my favourite play was when Lemieux faked the shot in the Olympics fooling the goalie and letting the pass go to his linemate. Absolutely sick.

The Zetterberg between the legs pass from behind the net to Datsyuk for the goal. Precision at its finest.

Love this one, but I think I prefer his assist on Bugsy's first hat trick:
