    Biggest Dirtbags In NHL (recent) History

    http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-triangle/post/_/id/53659/who-is-the-nhls-biggest-dirtbag-of-all-time


    Before you read it, try to guess who's on the list.  I thought quickly and got three.  A+ writing as well.  Fun article.

    Haven't read it yet but off the top: Cooke, Pronger, Chris Simon, Bryan Marchment, Ulf Samuelsson.

    Brilliant article. Loved the Avery line:

    Forced the NHL to enact a new rule that was basically "don't be a dink."

     


    lol...priceless!!

    The idea is to let people guess and then read it, RHO!

    Great list. Only disagree with Verbeek.

    My personal most hated was Hunter. During '82 divisional finals -- B's vs Nordiques -- Hunter poked, slashed and speared O'Reilly with the refs constantly turning a blind eye. O'Reilly finally had enough only to be held back by Andy Van Hellemond which prompted him to basically bi*ch slap the ref. O'Reilly was suspended for 10 games and the B's lost that series 4-3.

    Was Andy-boy paid off for that one? Or did he have money riding on the outcome?

    Seriously, the most fun article ever.  Every link is worth clicking.

    My favorites:  Grimson's meltdown, Claude Lemieux's shadow boxing, Barnaby vs. Ray, the announcer at 1:28 of Tucker vs. the bench, and Tik the Kissing Bandit.

    And more!

    Shupe, this one is worth going out of your way to read.  Despite riding a donkey across True North, you still must be smart enough to figure it out somehow!

    That Grimson one was nuts. Pretty insane for a born again christian. And what the hell happened to Smith that he was bleeding so much?

    Almost worse than Barnaby was Trefilov skating 200 feet to attack Snow while he was tied up with Barnaby....almost. Got to feel bad for Brindamour for sure...lol.

    And the announcer even said he'd seen Barnaby play possum previously before he miraculously returned from the brink of death to begin wailing on Snow.  Good article, NAS. How'd you find it?

    I only read two blogs.  Puckdaddy for quick info and up to the minute stuff.  Grantland for the highest quality fun.

    The list is interesting, but all of the links are what make it awesome.

    If this is any indication I'm going to become more familiar with Grantland.
