Dumbest comment I've ever heard from an NHL player in my entire life. I remember reading it and sitting there slack-jawed, unable to grasp the fact that a human being actually spoke those words.
You mean you weren't "slack jawed" when Chelios suggested that someone might try to "take Bettman out"?

Million dollar talent, ten cent brain.

Someone mentioned Jarkko Ruutu. I disagree 100%. Sure he sometimes acts like a monkey out on the ice, but the off-ice-Ruutu is possibly one of the smartest hockey players out there. I'm sure the finnish writers remember the Rouvali-case, when J.Ruutu flew him over to watch the Olympic Games. He just has a role on the ice that he has to live up to.

$5 says you have never met the guy, and based your opinions on the way he talks or looks.

Now thats dumb
Bon Jovi??? You admit that where everyone can see it?

Just like the previous poster said, all three Ruutus are known to be pretty smart and Selšnne ain't particularly dumb either. Raimo Helminen, thats one guy I might call dumb based on his poor oratory skills.

Sometimes I think Spezza is autistic or has Asperger syndrome.

I recall reading a quote from Scotty Bowman in which he said that Dallas Drake was the dumbest player he's ever coached. But I think he said that before coaching Sean Avery.

No exceptions.
What if he gets a contract with 7 zeroes in it?

Calling Brashear the dumbest player in hockey is totally gay.

Didn't Ed Jovanovski get nicknamed "Special Ed" for his possible spot on the spectrum or am I making this up?

Sutter is brilliant. He does come off as stupid but if you listen to him and really watch him you can see how smart the guy truly is. His sense of humour is so dry but the guy makes me laugh, he's pretty damn quick
