Really though I just figure out why any NHL player would turn to pulling someones hair in a fight/wrestle. These are professional athletes and that was just embarrassing to watch IMO. I have nothing against the players at all but really wow.

Well since we're talking about this brawl and one of the big issues lately is protecting players from hitting their heads off the ice how about picking a guy without a helmet up and slamming him on the ice a la Eager.

Turtling and fighting with a visor are the most dishonarable things a player can do.

Diving.

The rest are emotion-based actions that some people just do; and also a part of hockey.

In the 70's, guys routinely would get punched after they went down. There was no enforcer "code". Guys fought when the got PO'd, if you didn't want to fight, you played a more gentlemanly game, simple as that.

Racial slurs have to be the least classy, slew footing next, then punching a guy in his private parts while he is being held by someone else.

Really, none of these are classy and it's hard to put them in order.


I went on a little longer than I thought I was going to, not all of this post is directed to kyle evs48, I just wanted to say I have seen quite a bit of hair pulling in the past.

Diving. It's the reason why the main sport I grew up playing (soccer) is unwatchable to me now, and to see it in any form during an NHL game makes me sick.

Gotta go with slew-footing.

One of the dirtiest things a player can do to another. And can cause SEVERE injury.

Other, using your stick as a weapon and hitting someone in the head with it.

There should be a category called "Ulf Samuelsson", dedicated to the dirtiest player ever to lace them up, who made an art form of the intentional Knee on knee, while wearing a suit of armor for pads designed to harm other players, not protect him.

Another notable thug who liberally used the knee on knee was Marchment.

Out of the available choices. Slew footing is far more dangerous to a players career than any other available option. People are trained and know not to slew foot someone for just that reason. If they do it intentionally, it can be very very bad.

Every time he was on the ice i was hoping he would be carried off! I don't wish injury on anyone but him i would make an exception.

Third man in IMO. Slew footing is terrible too, just because it's so ****ing dangerous.

Guess you can also include Bieksa hitting Eager while the official is holding down Eager from getting back up. Seemed fairly unclassy.

Which is why I laughed so hard that his career was ended on an attempted knee-on-knee that tore his own knee up.

the cam neely incident was an accidental collision between two players. in the cases with brian bellows and brian skrudland it's perhaps more disputable. the skrudland hit isn't that 'clean' really what i can see and i guess it's the same with bellows although he puts some extra drama to it doing the ice carousel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tQsE3BIcKo

the thing is this is how canada always played against european teams trying to win 'respect'. throwing elbows to the head, crosschecking in the back, knee on knee, high sticking to the face ... please, i can go on forever. but when canadians do it it's suddenly 'tough' or 'old school hockey', when a european retaliates it's 'cheap'

please, stop being such don cherry like cry babies

Coming from a Flyers fan? That's rich.

Pulling hair is probably the classiest move out of the options posted.

racial slurs? Thats just being an ass... intent to injure is worse... the crap the McSorleys, Tootoos, Tuckers, Marchments... thats the worst by far... you could end a career or even kill somebody. Stomping and slewfooting and knee to knees or spears or throwing people to the ice like Bertuzzi, thats all FAR worse.

Crosby's taint shot was pretty weak, also

Uh Huh.

The Neely incident was intentional knee on knee contact and intent to injure. He managed to knee on knee Neely twice in that series. The first one was intentional and crippled Neely for the series, the second was more Neely's fault along the boards.

Samuelsson knee on kneed many more players than just those 3. those were just the 3 focused on during a coaches corner(Samuelsson got knee penalties every year). Also, can't forget his intentional hack to Pierre Mondou's eye after Mondou scored a goal and was celebrating, which ended his career in 85.

p.S The youtube you linked does not work.
