    I think this one at least is in everyone top 10. There has been many huge hits through the years, but I honestly believe this is the best one of all time.

    Dude was completely laid out and had to be taken out on a stretcher.

    Just Stevens in general:


    Lucic breaking the glass was pretty cool too:

    From Nieds and Stevens to a bunch of cans on defense...

    I'm a Bruins fan so I should hate anything Devils related but I can't cause I loved the way Stevens played.

    Rob Blake has some great ones too. King of the Butt Check:

    Larry Robinson on Gary Dornhofer. I'll admit it, I had to google the other guy's name.

    I do not ever remember seeing Churla as a captain of the Stars. I only remember Hatcher and Modano.

    2nd post nailed it. Nothing sweeter than Stevens laying out Lindros.

    This thread made me realize how dirty all my favorite hits are.


    Except this one.

    "Kinda leaves his feet a little bit..." Yes, in the same way the space shuttle 'sorta took off'.

    I post this to get under the skins of people around here but this is another nasty brutal dirty hit:


    Fuck the Canadiens.

    Also, I know you're not supposed to run goalies but at what point should people maybe do the "they left the crease they're fair game"?


    I mean, even QBs can get smashed once they start running in the NFL.

    I think he got a match penalty but other than that I can't honestly remember.

    As a Bruins fan though

    - Fuck the Canadiesn
    - Fuck Pacioretty
    - Fuck Aaron Rome

    Fuck them

    Belfour and other goalies chose to be very active outside of their crease. I have always felt the goalie was just another player and was fair game within reason, of course.

    The hit on Miller looked a lot worse upon first viewing than it actually was. I think Miller was embellishing it for more penalty time, but an intelligent goalie like that will embellish under the circumstances.

    Edit

    I remember this game pretty vividly too, I miss Colby, as dirty a fuck as he could be.
