Any other NHL player refuse to do the post playoff hand shake besides Billy Smith?

Any other NHL player refuse to do the post playoff hand shake besides Billy Smith?

And how long have they been doing it?

You mean when the players line up on the ice when a series is over? Brodeur didn't shake Avery's hand in the clownish screen maneuver series.

Ciccarelli said he regretted he shook the hand of C Lemieux in the Draper face series.

I mean a player who just refused to shake hands, I am sure there are instances where a player refused to shake someones hands, or like how Crosby was celebrating with his teammates and he missed the handshake a few years ago, but I am talking about a player who just would never do the handshake

Not NHL playoffs, but the whole Team Canada did not shake hands with the Soviet players after game 1 of the 1972 Series, and the Soviets were upset because of it. It was just a misunderstanding, I believe.

Chelios often (always?) would skip the handshake line if his team lost.

Chelios skipped the handshake line in the '07 WCF against the ducks

Damn, I don't know how I forgot to mention Gerry Cheevers.
Had no bones about it either.

Belfour wasn't big on shaking hands after either.

Funny that there's a lot of goalies on the list.

I personally have never not shaken hands but like Brodeur, I have skipped certain players in that line from time to time. I understand that completely.

I know it wasn't a big deal, but even in beer league it is bloody annoying to be waiting at centre ice for the other team to finish their circle jerk and come shake hands.

I can see where Draper was coming from. They just wanted to get the hell off the ice.

Its poor sportsmanship if you don't, even if you have to wait. However, there are many extreme cases cited above that I certainly can understand as exceptions. Like in 96, why would anyone on Detroit want to shake hands with Lemieux for the brutal, cowardly attack on Draper? Otherwise, I believe you have to suck it up, shake hands and remember how it feels. You can use that energy in a positive way next time. For instance, a story that has been told here often about how a couple of the 83 Oilers walked by the Isles dressing room and saw how damaged they were taught them that there is a bigger price to pay to win. You often learn a lot by facing your enemy after the game.

After. The Rangers beat the Sens in 2012, Anderson ran straight to the locker room but was forced to go back and shake hands by a coach

To me that is basically the epitome of sportsmanship. Played hard, play within the rules and man up and look your opponent in the eye win or lose at the end of it and acknowledge them. But.............my way is considered boring in 2014. Richard Sherman's type of rant is the thing that will get glamourized in this day and age, which is a shame.

Never liked the post-series handshake. You just battled the other guys for between four and seven games straight. If you don't hate them by that point, you weren't doing it right.

The post-series handshake, to me, says pretty much everything you need to know about the sport of hockey. Best tradition in all of sports, as far as I am concerned.

uh, the point of the handshake is that love of the game trumps hatred of the opponent.

Maybe for some people. Not for me, Chris Chelios, or Billy Smith apparently.

I could forgive Crosby for "forgetting" during the celebration. What was unforgivable was his attitude afterwards. He could have said "The handshake line is a great tradition, and I meant no disrepect to Nick Lidstrom or the RedWings. He's a great, classy player, and we've had a tremendous battle these last 2 years. It means a lot to me to beat a great opponent like that to win my first Stanley Cup".

Instead what he said was "wah-wah, I did nothing wrong, suck my (stanley cup) ring, *****es". Both after the game and for months afterwards.

Chelios was wrong too, before anyone throws him in my face. Everyone knows what a jerk he could be.
