Least classy move

Which is the least classy move in hockey.

Got the idea after seeing Burrows girlish move last night.

That's the first time I've seen hair pulled. I'm gonna go with continuing punching after a guy goes down.

slew footing. you're putting a guy's season or career at risk every time you pull the rug out from under him. i despise seeing most of this list, but that one takes the cake.

I'd say biting might be up there also.

Men don't pull hair. Maybe it's not the least "classiest" but it sure shows what kind of chump Burrows is.

There should be another one added, also inspired by Burrows.
'Running your mouth and running away.'

There are other guys that excells more at that than Burrows though.

Ott & Avery comes to mind.


Should've added "fighting with shield/visor on" aswell.

To continue hitting a player when he's down and to be the third man in a fight are equally disgraceful.

Agree 100%.

In its absence, I voted for slew footing / stomping. Seriously dangerous. Also hitting a downed player.

Racial slurs are awful, but you're not endangering anyone's life or career.

Racism shouldn't even be in this poll because it is clearly number one.

Out of all of them it has to be hair pulling. Did Burrows think he was wrestling in WWE's women's division?

I'm going with punching someone in the sack while someone else holds him.

How is that not up there?

stomping/hair pulling

wtf has to be going through your head to want to pull somebody's hair though? lol
i can't really imagine this happening though, might as well add biting too then

the dirtiest move definitely is the boogaard "knee to knee" hits

How about Semin attempting to donkey kong smash Staal? Any player that bad at fighting should be banned from it!

Kicking a player with your skates has to rank up there. Dangerous as well as classless.

Pulling hair isn't so much as not classy as it is just...girly.

(Says the guy with the Burrows avatar)

But you gotta put stomping (especially with skates), slooooofoooooooting, and hitting a guy when he's down at the top of that list. The first two could seriously injure somebody. I doubt anybody would cry if they lost some hair.

my top 3 with the first having the least amount of class.

Least classy (shooting the puck)


Least graceful(punching when someone is down)



Most embarrassing(third in a fight) pulling hair and bongo drums are just as bad

Slew footing and stomping are both horrible, but I'm surprised that they're paired in this poll. What, they both involve feet? Hair-pulling and punching both involve hands.
