The worst cheap shot ever?

A lot of people are going to right away throw out the Bertuzzi-Moore incident. And I'll admit it was dirty and cheap. You dont hit a guy in the neck from behind and have it not be cheap. That said Bertuzzi didnt break his neck with that punch nor did he intend on having Moore's head hit the ice so that's why I'm not putting this #1. I think the worst cheap shot may have been Ruslan Salei's hit from behind on Mike Modano in 1999. For anyone who didnt see it (although most have) Salei was pursuing Modano who was pursuing the puck behind the Anaheim net. Modano was going at a pretty good tilt and Salei literally just threw him into the boards, Modano's feet came from up off the ground and the way he hit his head into the boards makes you cringe. Modano was very vulnerable on that play. That play just looked flat out dirty. It looked ugly, and to be honest it looked pretty deliberate.

Others that come to mind:

Hatcher breaking Roenicks jaw
Shore on Ace Bailey in 1933 (ok we never saw that one but his career ended and we almost feel like we have seen it)
Matt Johnson on Jeff Beukeboom

I'll get these words out of the way:

Classless, shameless, vicious, thug, goon, etc.

I'll put my vote in for Claude Lemieux on Kris Draper

I really cant think of who the players were right now. I think one of the players was a Washington Capital, the player in question scored a goal late in the game or in overtime. While he was celebrating the goal he got checked hard on to the ice.

That would be Dale Hunter on Pierre Turgeon and I would agree that would be the biggest cheap shot ever.

I'm sure Domi even climbed into a few people's good books for a second or two because of that.

Does anyone have the video?

That one pretty much tops my list. Others that i remember were Adam Gave's viscious slash that broke Mario's wrist in the playoffs one year. Also John fergusion fighting Bobby Hull (who was playing with a broken jaw)

Louie DeBrusk on Dave Taylor (the hit bruised Dave's brain stem and ended his career)........

Was it Bill Barber that put that big knee-on-knee hit on Bobby Orr??????

haha, and let it begin! we've gone over this a million times, there are a million different opinions, who cares about another one!!

I'd have to go with McSorely on Brashear, hitting close to home, or Matt Johnson on Jeff Beukeboom.

You know, there are comments made here that you just shake your head and want to write back saying what you really think. But if you do that, the person who you
want to comment on will get offended.
I respect everyone's opinions here or at least try to considering the inanity of some remarks. I like reading 'Big Phil's' remarks and he has interesting thoughts often.

But come on. It is sheer lunacy to try to defend Bertuzzi saying he didn't do what he did to specifically hurt Steve Moore in the way he was hurt. Its amazing how someone could watch an incident like that and make such a comment. When someone attacks someone with rage and using various types of force, its very rare that they could accurately know how the intended victim will eventuallu be injured. ( Bertuzzi's actions were consistent with knocking Moore down. Its a simple fact that if Bertuzzi didn't cowardly sucker punch Moore from behind and then put his whole body's force on Moore to knock him face first to the ice, there would be no injury. Its simple logic. No sucker punch - no injury. An attacker like Bertuzzi does those actions to specifically hurt his victim. There is no other conclusion. Never mind what happened afterwards. Bertuzzi's action was to injure Moore as badly as he could. Its so apparent on the film.

I remember Brian Burke saying afterwards that Moore fell because Bertuzzi tripped over a stick. Its an asinine comment and Burke loses credibility when he says that.

In my mind, you can't sugar coat what Bertuzzi did. Simply, there would be no serious injury without Bertuzzi's sucker punch. If you get right down to it, Bertuzzi set the chain events in motion and he has to take the blame no matter what type of injuries Moore suffered.

I guess people close their eyes (and minds) after seeing Bertuzzi's intial punch and assume he was an innocent bystander after he threw the first punch. That's not what really happened.

It was a horrendous hit from behind, and Ace Bailey nearly died. I would have to put it on top of my list. If they broadcast games on television back then, I don't think Eddie Shore would have been reinstated.

This is a list the CBC posted:

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/columns/top...lowlights.html

In the wake of the Todd Bertuzzi's attack on Steve Moore, we've compiled a list of 10 of the most noteworthy and memorable acts of hockey goonery, including:


Retaliatory hit begets All-Star Game
"Rocket" Richard's tomahawk & the ensuing riot
Wayne Maki fractures Ted Green's skull
Bobby Clarke's Summit Series chop
Maloney crowns Glennie; crown sticks it to Maloney
The night the lights went out
Hunter ends Turgeon's playoff run
Jeff Kugel runs wild in OHL game
Gary Suter ruins Paul Kariya's Olympics
The Marty McSorley trial

Here are some incidents listed on Wikipedia:

I would have to go with the Hunter one simply because it happened after the play was stopped. All the other ones you could argue were heat of the moment during play.

THat has to be the ugliest offence I've ever seen.. I often wonder if that blow kept Turgeon from being great instead of just pretty good. The psychological scars would last long past the physical healing. That was a mugging. I always liked Hunter's spirit until he ruined his whole career with that assinine move.
