1. Dean Youngblood


2. Gordon Bombay


Now Dean Youngblood had great speed and a little more grit, but Bombay was a masterful stick handler before his tragic knee injury...

discuss.

EDIT - quick side note, both were righties... hmmm

I say Youngblood, because he looks like a Red Wing in that jersey.

From what I remember, Bombay was in a league resembling the AHL while Youngblood was in a league resembling the OHL, so who's to say that was Youngblood's prime?

Still, i'm gonna go with Bombay. He knew what it took to make it to the big leagues, and all that kid Youngblood was worried about was learning to fight on ice (to avenge Patrick Swayze, of course).

The Wings must have one of the most popular jersey patterns. Wasn't Zetterberg's Timra jersey the same pattern as the Wings?

Sorry to be "that person", but I haven't heard of either character.

Bombay. That triple deke was awesome.

As a hockey fan, I was offended by the film Youngblood. The end of that movie was a joke, most likely directed by someone who'd never watched hockey before in their life.

At least "Mighty Ducks" was never meant to be taken seriously as a film.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Oh wait, so the second dude is from Mighty Ducks? Okay, I've heard of that movie. I've never seen it, so I wouldn't know what any characters are named.

Tough call because Youngblood did have some pretty slick moves with the puck and did score some big goals...Bombay was pretty good himself with the puck so who knows haha

yes, the triple deke was pretty revolutionary... he also came up with the flying V... but that was in his coaching career, so it can't really be used to judge him as a player... clearly a visionary though!

I do agree that the fight scene at the end is pure ridiculousness when they are jousting with their hockey sticks blink.gif And then there is the scene in the weight room where a dude is doing squats with his freaking breezers on....

BUT, Mighty Ducks had that damned Flying V, knucklepuck etc.

I gotta vote Youngblood.

What made it ridiculous wasn't only that there never is any such fight in hockey, but that their team had just won the Memorial Cup. They should have been celebrating like crazy, instead they get into a circle and root for a stickfight.

Because hockey players don't shake hands after games. Instead, they engage in stickfights. Worst movie ever.

Oh, and like I said, Mighty Ducks was a Disney movie, so it wasn't meant to be serious.

No, Bettman is more likely to be producer, rather than director.
