Your personal favorite hit doesn't even knock a Sedin out of the game? Well, that figures.

The McLaren one was one of the worst hits I've ever seen.
No he doesn't. He pretty much picks up Chelios from the side and heaves him into the boards. He doens't hit the numbers at all.

lol. Ref hits fan from behind head first into the boards. If this isn't the most ironic hit I'm not sure what is.

Thanks for all these links!

You've never hit anyone before, have you? It's called a follow-through and it keeps your body from being thrown back. A forearm shiver, or a hit with the elbow as a point of contact look VERY different as they require different positioning to actually deliver the force at that point of contact. Plus they are 1000x more devestating. All of the force in his hits are in the shoulder where they should be.

Yeah - Stevens with his elbow to Eric Lindros is the dirtiest hit of all time.

Eric Lindros on Andreas Dackell like I posted earlier, is the best NHL hit of all time. Unlike Stevens, he used his shoulder and body to hit him, KOing Dackell for life in the NHL.

Eric Lindros on Slava Kozlov in the World Cup - greatest open ice hit ever. He knocked that breakout pass away from Russia, and Canada went back in and scored less than 7 seconds later. Who scored? Eric Lindros.

You all might hate the guy for some long lost reason, but he was the best, and ignoring the hits won't change the fact.

The Lindros on Dackell hit, as it happens:

BoOOM - oh and Lindros nails Dackell. "Feel the wrath of Lindros"

Announcer 2 - "That is the hardest hit I've ever seen"

Announcer 1 - oh boy, he's cut badly. He felt the brunt of Eric Lindros.... we'll be back.

And to anyone clicking on the the first time, turn up your speakers, because you can hear the hit over the crowd, and announcers. You can hear the boards shatter, and Dackell's head crush from the hit.

Clark was freakin' awesome..
What i love about that one is as soon as the other teams player sees that his teammate is on the ground, the gloves are off, time to send a messgae. even though they didnt fight, its still good to see another teammates stick up for eachother. Dont see that any more in the NHL

Played on a better team you mean.
Hence the Hart Trophy that Lindros had at the time, and Forsberg only got 7 years later in the midst of his competition being Jose Theodore.
Whereas Lindros got his in the days of Messier, Lemieux, Lemieux, Hull, etc.

Look it up.

That hit wasn't dirty, what on earth are talking about? Lindros skated into the Devils zone with his head down and Stevens nailed him cleanly.

I nominate Larry Robinson's hit on Gary Dornhofer (can't remember what year) in the 70's.

It was as good and textbook a bodycheck as you'll ever see with perfect timing,technique,and sheer devastation.it shook the building and moved the earth.

If you did a video on "how to bodycheck" that check would be the one you would use to show how a d-man should take the body on an oncoming player into the boards.

It was unreal.

Don't give me that BS man, Stevens had FOUR elbow penalties in his career, so I guess the refs are biased as well, huh?

Ref was McCreary...he missed a high stick that nearly carved out Glen Wesley's eye and that drunken vigilante wanted to have a chat with McCreary--or so he said at his arraignment the next Monday morning.

Lol.. ya, even better is Clark pointing to the almost dead Bell as if to say... "Listen buddy, I'll fight you and all, but how 'bout we worry about re-attaching this guys torso to his head first..".. lol

Does anyone have Bure on Churla from the 94 playoffs?

Probably the best, most unnecessary elbow of all-time (Stevens on Lindros a close second only because Lindros actually had the puck)

Sabres fans who have this "best hits" DVD that circulated around Buffalo last year, may remember a hit by Erik Rasmussen on a d-men behind the net that looks like the Wendel Clark hit. Unreal.

Soupy on Umberger is huge, as is Tucker on Kapenen....my god was Sami killed..
