The MOVE that impressed you the most

There should be more greatest plays videos available, i mean there’s tons of Cherry goon stuff out there so why not sell something more spectacular?

Personnally i’m much more impressed by a intuitive decke than a big hit & would take dazzling goals over dazed goons anyday!What is the move that in your mind’s eyes was the best ever & why? (add some juice in your stories like context etc…)

Mine is one of Mario’s many weird sometimes hard to explain goals:

In the 1990 All-Star game #66 scored using his wrong hand, he went to the net during a competition, at the last moment he decided to play with one hand, his wrong hand, he switched his hockey to his left hand and put the puck in the net while the goalie didn’t have a clue as to what happened. He turned right (left of goalie) but scored with his left hand to the right side of the goalie!

Gretz who was watching him at that time was in jaw-dropping awe at having witnessed such an innovative subtile move.

So what is your bext move? Lots of them are made each year, sometimes by marginal players & as i try to remember some you might refresh our memories or share classics with us in your own words.

    If you’re talking about the same move I am, it was against NJ. Patrick Elias had a breakaway, and clearly had Boucher beat, but he rolled over on his back, threw his arm back, and stopped the puck with his glove. I missed the game, so I was lucky enough to get it on tape, lol.

    I may be wrong but after Comrie undressed the defenseman Suchy did he not deke the pads off Burke and slide it in between his legs. I can still picture the looks of the faces on the Oilers bench! CLASSIC! Goal of the year! Dougies goal was also nice, its actually in the intro for NHL98 for playstation.

    How the Hell did everyone forget Chris Drury. He’s probably got like 5 in the top 10. he had like three great ones last playoffs. I know you Canucks fans have seen a couple during the regular season. Remember last year at the begining of the season, he had that one where he broke in between two defensman and like chipped the puck over a poke checking Cloutier, before falling down. How about the one against the Wings last playoffs, where he schooled two defensman(I think they may have been both Chelios and Lidstrom, I know Cheli was there) and then put a move on Haskek and made him look pretty bad. It was the game winner in OT, and I will always remember Drury’s face as Reinprect skated towards him to hug him. He just kinda shrugged and made a face like, “I don’t know how I keep scoring these goals either” He is the only player besides Peter Forsberg that has been able to make me jump out of my seat and scream Yeeeeaaaaaa, at the top of my lungs over and over. And Drury has done it like 10 times. Every year he will get like 3 in the regular season and 3 in the post season. Watch him next year because people are gonna forget about him again since Forsberg’s back.

    I think Peter the great has a few in there too. I now he’s got a couple playmaking moves that won’t be forgot any time soon. Anybody remember that play he made when he was like circling the whole ice, confusing everybody, and then charged behind the net to do a wraparound, but when he was almost to the other post he made a perfect blind behind the back pass right on the tape, to set up a one timing Joe Sakic who had an open goal to shoot at, and you know Joe won’t miss.

    Yes you are correct… He did put in between his legs. I should have noticed that one earlier as well.

    Daigle coming out of retirement.

    I don’t want to imagine that… hehe I am sure it sucked

    mario sucks because he’s an old man who can’t play the game as he used to. he scores soooooo many goals due to the fact that all players in the NHL don’t hit him because they’re afraid to break him. look at Saku Kouivu, comes back to the habs in the playoffs, and because the Buins knew how much of a good player he IS, not was, IS, and they still gave him hell. ie, Saku being checked into the Buins bench. Mr. Lemieux, nope, nadda, you don’t hear about him playing the game till he’s blue in the face. no, he’s no better than Jonus Hougland.

    and that’s why they call me Bluntman, Wha-ha-ha-ha-haaaa

    You should get a prize for knowing who that college guy is. I’ve been trying to find that out for months. Thanks!

    I’m surprised no one said Daigle banging Pam Anderson.

  11. amok says:

    Oh I’m sure we’ve seen more than a couple during the regular season. He scores some beauties. I was at a pub with a couple of friends when he scored the goal you mentioned against the Canucks. My friends booed but I said “How can you possibly boo *that*?”

  12. YingYan says:

    You, obviously will never be an analyst, that was by far the worst crap i ever heard about Mario. Pathetic…

  13. Slats says:

    wait for the rockem sockem videos, trust me it was better. My friends, who are LA and Canuck fans both agree it was easily the best of the year and one of the best in the last 5.

  14. bluntman says:

    oh well, i guess that’s why god shouldn’t have inventended the opinion. everyone has their own point of view and it’s a shame you don’t agree with me. AND MARIO STILL SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Roland_Deahl says:

    I the Sabres vs. Wings game when Gratton had a breakaway and Hasek fell down to make an amazing save but ended up looking like an ass when he scored. Hilarious! It looked like he was afraid the puck was going to hit him. I also liked when MaxAfinogenov attepted to play with two sticks, and then unfairly got a penalty.

    There have many and probably the 3 guys that routinely make the highlights with their goals are Mario, Drury and Bertuzzi.

    To say I have one favorite is impossible but I’ll try and give you a couple.

    1) Bourque (who alot of people consider the best d-man to ever play) is skating as hard as he can back to his end and Mario (never considered to be a great skater) chasing him with the puck & about at center Mario slides the puck through Bourque’s legs catches up to it in front of Bourque goes in alone and scores a beauty.

    2) Drury just look through the playoffs the guy is a highlight waiting to happen.

    3) Bertuzzi, considering he is a big man he has scored some amazing goals the last 3-4 years. The one that sticks out in my mind is in a game 2 yrs. ago Bertuzzi comes out from behind the opposition net and grabs the puck heads towards the blueline then turns towards the right side boards all the time there is a defender chasing him. About 5 feet from the boards he starts going back into the zone and drops the puck to the d-man standing at the blueline the defender stops to go after the d-man but Bertuzzi actually fakes the drop and reaches back as far as possible and pulls the puck up to himself and feeds Naslund in the slot wide open for a goal.

    Thats cool you can appreciate what he does. Van and Col are building up a pretty nice rivalry. It’s just too bad Brashear is gone, him and Parker had some good ones, and thats one of the things I looked foward to the most when Col played you guys.

    I did see that Coaches Corner…..but I would have to say have you ever seen Mats Sundin in the All-star game(I think) on the break-away contest. Come in skating backwards and use the best back hand in the league to go top-shelf on Roy. That was the Shit

    I want the Canucks to win of course, but I’m pretty easily satisfied with good hockey, regardless of who wins.

    And it’s definitely a good rivalry. Even the 2001 playoff series was great, aside from the third period collapse in game 4. Those first three games were some of the best hockey of those entire playoff, although no one would know it by looking at the stats that show a 4-0 series.

    In the last two years I’ve been able to watch Sakic, Roy, Forsberg, Drury, Tanguay, Hasek, Hull, Shanahan, Fedorov, Yzerman, Lidstrom, Chelios and more do their thing in the playoffs right in front of me, not on the tv screen. It doesn’t get much better than that. Er wait, it could.. if the Canucks could find a way to win a damned game at home.
