New to your board, a true hawks fan. I respect Detroit and have followed hockey my whole life. Denis Savard comes to my mind with great a back hand.

Crosby was the first one to come to mind for me. Don't be afraid to mention him. It's nice to see him mentioned in a place where mention of him actually belongs.

Can't think of any others off-hand besides what has been mentioned.

Video of this backhand Datsyuk laid down on Luongo or it didn't happen.




Please

Also I have to add that Crosby has a wicked backhand.

Like someone above said, Bert does have a pretty mean backhander actually and has some nice goals because of it. He pulls it backhand quick and gets it over the tendys shoulder like its his job.... oh wait it is his job.

Patrick Kane showed a pretty good backhand in the playoffs.

Not by any means one of the greatest backhands, but a memorable one... Have you guys noticed, when he's on a breakaway, this is the move he ALWAYS tries. I think they're on to him.

Who knows; maybe you would realize that enforcers in hockey are critical to a teams chemistry and overall success?

Ah yes, I remember it now. Really not that great of a backhand, just great awareness by Pavel.

Ya they shoud definitely be on to Cleary by now. He needs a new move. He tried that against the Pens in the finals and Fleury didn't bite.

Yep, dying seconds of game 6..... sad.gif To be fair, its been his money move for a while, but he does need to do something different now and then, just to keep the goalies honest.

I remember someone saying once that Kariya had a backhand slapshot - anyone got a video of it?
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

All have been mentioned, but Sundin, Modano and Damphousse have the best all-time backhands.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

I don't see Bert as having a good backhand. He has a good move where he goes to the backhand during shootouts/breakaways, but really, I can't think of a time i've seen him fire one on a whim. St. Louis was another guy mentioned, he has a move where he uses it in the shootout, but i havent seen him take one top shelf in the second period.

The fact that he was such a s*** skater ruined any skillz he had.

Mats Sundin.
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...
