#1972139 Will Malkin Ever Develop a Fedorov Complex?

Posted by hockeysattva on 03 May 2010 - 04:42 AM

Its a bad analogy or comparison.

Crosby isn't a better player than Malkin, though time will tell on whether that changes or not. Second, they're basically the same age chronologically and with the team. The only fair part of your comparison is that you've got English speaking as first language captains, and I don't really think that was the issue with Feds and don't expect as much from Malkin.


#1944553 Top 5 Fighters

Posted by hockeysattva on 16 April 2010 - 06:51 AM

Since, you said fighter and enforcer, and since I'm not really in the mood for deciding where the Tony Twists of hockey belong, and since I want a list of Wings...
My five favorite fighters.

I've always loved watching Shanny fight. He had some real slug fests with Foote.
Darren McCarty he could play hockey, and throw down as needed nuff said.
[Honorable Mention: Chris Chelios, remember when he fought Luc... I distinctly remember his boy saying, "mom why is that man hitting daddy?"]
Probert and Kocur are gimmies, but they were really more on the enforcer end.

Fischer, he didn't fight much, but I'll also never forget the pounding he gave Hartnell after he healed. I would not what to be anywhere close to the receiving end of that. Plus he was just so young, he really had the passion.
Martin Lapoint, he had more upper body strength than any other Wing at that time, and he got into some great match-ups with guys who didn't realize it.
Mike Vernon, probably the chippiest netminder I'll give credit to ;)
