Top 5 hitters, not top 5 cheapshots.

He did a pretty good steamroller impression on Iginla too during the last Flames/Oilers bout.

Torres isn't a Top 5 hitter. He's a physical player who makes several borderline hits per year.

It was pretty funny the way the Sharks collectively hiked up their skirts and went home after that hit.

Hit on Michalek? Same hit that Michalek two nights before Torres' on Smyth. Hit on Doug Weight? Umm.... shoulder to shoulder hit? Hit on Ward? Give me a break.

And that has anything to do with the debate? Do you feel that your statement accomplished anything to do with who the top 5 hitters in the NHL are?

I love people who bring in random information into a debate that has nothing to do with it.

I guess the last one is a homer pick, but I could debate it.

The hit he lays on Bertuzzi is probably my favorite.

Ah, and here's the infamous laying out of Matt Cooke.

These are probably more favorites than the top 5.

1. Anton Volchenkov - Biased, probably, but he hits like a tank.
2. Brooks Orpik - He's massive.
3. Vitali Vishnevski - He goes looking for it too much, but when he catches you, you'll feel it.
4. Garnett Exelby - Big hit on Sundin this past year.
5. Doug Murray - Didn't play a ton, but hits any chance he gets, and hard.

What can I say? I like defensemen who aren't afraid to throw their body around.

Okay. Tell me about a borderline hit by Torres last season that didn't involve the Sharks.

Regehr should be on every list, there is not a more punishing defenseman along the boards in the NHL. He destroyed Crosby cutting around the net last year and is big, mean, and knows when to pick his spots.

Phaneuf, Gauthier and Exelby are the top 3 for me.

My favourite hit still has to be Denis Gauthier's (Calgary) hipcheck on Matt Bradly (SJ) a couple years ago that almost sent Bradly into the stands. I've been looking for that hit for years.

The hit after the whistle on Steve Bernier in Game 5 along with the shoulder to the head of Michalek in Game 2 was good enough for me. I don't care what he does against other teams.

What about my statement prompted you to bring in something totally random, like "It was pretty funny the way the Sharks collectively hiked up their skirts and went home after that hit"?

I said Torres is not a top 5 hitter, but that he's a physical player who I've seen throw several borderline hits (Bernier and Michalek). If you can't face the fact that a player on your team makes borderline hits, what can I say? I'd love Torres on my team, he's Darcy Tucker Jr, not that it's a bad thing.

Probably the only person to get a real good hit on Sid too. Most players just seem to bounce off him or just flat out miss. I know he's on my list because of that one.


Maybe it's the homer in me, but Brooks Orpik isn't getting enough love here. Oprik and Exelby are probably the most vicious hitters out there.

I think the Cole hit has something to do with it.

The Reasoner and Lang hits are really the only two I have a problem with. The McDonald one if I wasn't a Kings fan . Most of his hits are forearm/shoulder.

He's the first person I've seen really hit Lidstrom like that who I can remember

You said it, the Lang one was all elbow.
