Not the best of all time but Tuomo Ruutu has crushed some people in his time.

What year was this?

It's pretty well known that refs were biased back then. Certain players wouldn't be called for certain penalties.

You got anything to back that up? Because I never recall hearing that the refs looked the other way when certain players threw elbows. And when was "back then", because during the '90's and on I never remember him getting one of those elbow penalties during that period, never even seen him getting away with one.

So when a defensive end blindsides a QB, is he purely trying to hurt the QB? Or maybe he's trying to change the outcome of a game/series by rattling the other team and distract them from their game by intimidation and force. Much like Stevens.

Also I have no idea how you could know what someone else is thinking.

Btw, I think Linden's hit is the best all-time. It might not be the hardest, but is sure does look awesome.
That one would be my choice of the best all-time hit.

I remember watching that hit and was amazed that Quinn was even penalized. It was one of the few times I saw Orr with his head down. If I recall correctly his D partner Don Awrey(?) gave Orr a pass in his skates and Orr looked down for second just as Quinn was pinching in along the boards.

Both players went flying and Orr was concussed. Here is a picture of the aftermath of the hit.

The next season Orr and Quinn dropped the gloves to settle up and Orr beat on Quinn like a drum.

I didn't say Stevens threw elbows, read my post. You said refs weren't biased. Players carried reputations and wouldn't be called for penalties they "never" commit. I said nothing about Stevens... you might want to read that again. You seem to be all uppity because your favorite team's player is being accused of something, calm down... it's not the end of the world if he isn't perfect in every aspect.

I'm still waiting for you to back this up, that refs use to ignore elbows because of a players reputation. What doesn't make sense about your opinion is why would they even do this?

I would think twice before ever lecturing me again on anything, espcially when you haven't brought anything to the table except your opinion, because until you do it's baseless.

Okay, you're right... Stevens was never called for roughing, kneeing, charging, or any violent penalty. I'm guessing the only ones he committed were hooking penalties?

You do know that leading with an arm/elbow, leaving the feet, etc can be charged with something OTHER than elbowing? You might want to check out the NHL rule book.

Off-topic, but I thought I'd like to comment on Stevens....Scott Stevens was a dirty player who got away with things because he won Stanley Cups....if you look at the players he "KNOCKED OUT!" they were usually the best players on the other teams at the time: Lindros, Langkow, Kariya, Willis, Francis, etc...

It sickens me that the league and the media sit there talking about head injuries and how to protect the players yet glorifying Scott Stevens and disregarding the careers he has either nearly ended or seriously altered...Shane Willis was one of the up and coming good young players and he was never the same after that hit...neither was Langkow and we all know how Lindros turned out and then Kariya had nothing to offer on the Av's, a team stocked with talent at the time.

Back to the topic, there have so many hits, but maybe not the best, but my favorite was Boris Mironov with Edmonton on Dave Gagner with the Leafs...Mironov sent him flying and the replays were spectacular.

and why is that a bad thing? if the best player on the other team came over the blueline with his head down he would get crunched, cleanly. Stevens never led with his elbow and to say that he did is completely assanine.

First off, I never said that anything about elbows, intent to injure is intent to injure, and that is the point you just made for me...Stevens sees a guy coming over the blue line and he wants to hurt him...yeah....tha'ts not a bad thing *shrug*. Sports is competitive, but there is a thing called sportsmanship...the image of pro sports is going downward every year because of dirty plays, acts of stupidity and off-the court/field/hockey personal matters.

It shouldn't be ok to hit someone because they are crossing the blue line with their head down, and you want to know why....it's because of the damage it may cause, whether permanent or not...that's how you protect players, by telling them to take away the puck or tie up the guy instead of trying to take him off his skates.
