Pat Quinn on Bobby Orr was a good one. I believe it was an elbow, but it may have been clean.

Hunter on Turgeon was the cheap shot with the worst sportsmanship, but the most devastating cheap shot was Bertuzzi on Moore.

There's also the possibility that this hit MAY have cost the Kings the Stanley Cup.

If Turgeon is healthy, is he enough to help the Isles beat the Habs in the Wales Conf Final? Probably not. I don't think anyone was gonna beat them that year, Wayne Gretzky couldn't beat them. But it would have been interesting.

If Turgeon was healthy though, we knows what would have happened? At the time Turgeon was one of the most dominate players in the league. But regardless, everyone can agree that Hunter's shot was disgusting and has no place in the game of hockey. I think if someone takes a shot like this-they should be kicked out of the NHL. I'm not just saying that because I'm an Islander fan, it's just wrong to intentially injure somebody, and it's obvious he was. It ruins our great game.

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
Hunter on Turgeon. You don't blind-side a guy when he is celebrating a goal.

From what I have heard, Shore did not cheap shot Bailey.

From what I gather Shore got tripped by someone he didn't see. So he turned around and grabbed the first guy he saw (Bailey) and basically gave him a pile-driver...

Here's 10 of them. ESPN did this awhile back.
That Granato on Wilkinson one doesn't ever seem to be brought up but it is a lot worse than some of the other ones that have been mentioned so far.

Actually what happened was that Shore led a rush into the Leaf end and was knocked down rudely by NHL 'Bad Man' Red Horner. Shore was behind the play as Horner's defence partner King Clancy took the puck that Shore had lost and headed up the ice to the Bruins zone. In those days, when the defenceman rushed the puck, a forward came all the way back to take the defence position. That's what Bailey did. When the enraged Shore got up, he headed straight for the defenceman who he thought hit him. He put his shoulder full force into Bailey from behind and Bailey violently hit the ice head first and his skull cracked.

Horner then went to Shore, who had a sort of grin on his face and asked Shore why he did that and then Horner knocked out Shore with one punch. Both Shore and Horner were suspended. Bailey almost died and the papers had their daily headlines detailing his progress. It so happended that there was a noted brain specialist visiting Boston at that time and operated on Bailey.

Meanwhile, Bailey's father headed for Boston with a gun but was intercepted on the train.

I'm attaching one of the three photos from the newspaper that captured the aftermath.

The ? hit on Kevin Stevens basically ruined his career, and his face, which resulted in reconstructive surgery and a drug addiction...

Could you explain the incident a bit?

Also, someone mentioned a Potvin cheap shot, care to enlighten me?

Is it true that Eddie Shore spent his suspension time vacationing in Bermuda?

Easily Claude Lemieux on McCarty or Draper, I don't remember which, but you know the hit.

I don't remember that being a cheap shot. Stevens was hit in game 7 against the Islanders (i think it was 1993, when Pitt lost in 7 to the NYI after winning back-to-back cups). Someone from the NYI hit him square, and hit Stevens in the face with his helmet (the player was shorter than Stevens). Stevens went out cold in mid-air and smashed his face into the ice. It was ugly to watch, but I don't recall it being a cheap hit.

How about the Kyle Mclaren hit on Zednick in the 02 playoffs? Can someone post a video to that.

The poster was being sarcastic. In the '79 playoffs, Nilsson went into the corner to get a puck. Potvin lined him up for a hit, and Nilsson's skate got caught in a rut. Nilsson's leg was injured, and the Potvin sucks chant was born. Nilsson himself said it was a clean hit.

Here's an account of the incident on Legends of Hockey.net.

Here is an excerpt from midway through the second paragraph and the whole third paragraph,
Quote:
On December 12, 1933, during the second period of a Leafs' visit to Boston Garden, Eddie Shore was checked hard by Leafs defenseman King Clancy while Shore was rushing the puck into the Leafs' end.

As play moved back into Boston territory, Shore, dazed by the hit and full of vengeance, skated wildly toward Bailey, thinking that he was charging Clancy. Shore used his stick to trip Bailey heavily from behind and Ace fell to the ice with a sickening thud. He lost consciousness and began bleeding from the head. Red Horner skated over to the stricken Bailey and, seeing his teammate seriously injured, asked Shore in no uncertain terms just what he'd been thinking. Shore just smiled, prompting a furious Horner to deck him with one punch, knocking him unconscious to the ice

This is also from the Ace Bailey bio to which I linked in my above post,
Quote:
Shore, exhausted and near collapse from both his own injury and his worry over Bailey's condition, went to Bermuda for three weeks to convalesce.

Cam Neely's first knee injury was courtesy of Denis Potvin.

That's at the top of my list. Probably the only cheap shot where I was genuinely shocked watching it happen. Most of the other notable ones were "heat of the moment" events or retaliations for past aggression. Regrettable instances, but hardly surprising. Hunter cold-bloodedly stalked Turgeon for nothing more than scoring the series-clinching goal. Wrong on every level.

Thanks for the info on the Shore/Bailey incident. It has been a while since I read the reports on it and I had forgotten the details.

Another nasty one was Dave Brown cross-checking Tomas Sandstrom in the head back in the mid 80s. It was very nasty.
