I've heard mention of Ricci and Sopel as the ugliest hockey players in the NHL, but I would have to nominate Gino Odjick. Man that guy is nasty looking. Who do you think is the most decrepid looking player in the league?
(yeah I know Gino retired. but he was playing as of last year, so I figure that's close enough)
Ricci of course is an obvious one but I have to say with a better nose he might be just plain bad looking... and lot's of players have ugly noses. So I can't in good conscience vote for him.
Handzus... he's got the Bud Light Mini-truck Mullet with Soul Glow applicators going on. I bet he spends a minimum of 2 hours on that doo every day! But I can't say he's the ugliest. Freakiest maybe, but not ugliest.
I have to say, Canuck fan or not, Sopel looks like that kidnapping, child molesting ******* from Kindergarten Cop. Cringe!
But all in all, I'm going with Buchburger. That SOB is just u-g-l-y, he ain't got no alibi, he's UGLY! Go Pens. Might be their best accomplishment all year, aside from beating the Wings.
PS - Domi doesn't count because he's not in the Homo Sapiens family of mammals. Science hasn't made the connection yet, but he IS the Missing Link. Evolution is solved!
Uhh, Bertuzzi is NOT ugly to me at all. On the contrary, I find him quite goodlooking and he's got that rugged look coupled with intensity and a nasty disposition to boot... a LOT of women find him very attractive, trust me on this one Mack. :p
