    I may have just missed the boat, being all new and stuff, but I was wondering what you guys consider the best goal of all-time...
    And please...no one say the Orr jumping picture shot....b/c we all know the actual goal wasn't that fantastic, circumstance aside.

    Sportcentre's Top 10 NHL Goals Of All-Time

    But there's several goals out there that is much better, I dont think Spezza with some others should be on the list.
    And Ovechkin's goal was pure luck imo.

    Agreed mostly on the Ovechkin goal...it sure looked pretty though.

    Thanks for the link, as well.

    Kovalevs goal vs USA in 04. Someone find it on youtube.
     
  8. ROFL, The Spezza goal looked pretty because of Pylon Souray just standing there.......

    Those definitely are great, but I have seen some better. That video should be called nicest deke's that lead to goals.


    P.S can anyone tell me who scored the goal upside down in midair at 1:23 of this video? THAT was pretty

    A Canuck player that wore #27 at that time.

    Maybe some of the Nuck fans know. :)

    Gretzky's no look behind the back pass to Coffey in the '85 finals was brilliant, Gretzky & Kurri's give and go and give and go against the Rangers was awesome, Gretzky making the Rockies look like peewees back in '81 or '82 was magical as was his spinarama against the Blues in his 5 goal game back in the mid 80s

    but...

    Denis Savard's goal against the Oilers is probably the best of all time.

    Todd Bertuzzi I think. He wore 27 back then and as I have the video in better quality, in which I can see it is his name.

    Not one goal by Lafleur? Not even Jagr's best, where he was falling to the ice and batted it out of the air? ESPN has no institutional memory of any hockey that they didn't broadcast.:shakehead

    This clip includes two Cam Neely goals that certainly warranted an honorable mention. The first comes against Quebec, 1:15 into the clip. The second comes at 1:39, a spin-o-rama goal against Ottawa that is arguably his best.

    I'm in awe every time I see that Afinogenov goal; it's so pretty.

    I remember watching this top 10 live and kept wondering when they'd show this goal. I remember it won some "play of the year" award at the NHL awards ceremony that year. Do they still have that award?

    I think, taking the importance of the goal into consideration, that Dougie Gilmour's Double OT goal against St. Louis in game 1 in 1993 is the best goal ever.

    Just watched the sportcentre top 10 though... those were all amazing. The Spezza one could have been replaced with a few nicer ones I can think of off the top of my head, like Dougie's goal, or the Kamensky spin move, or even the Datsyuk goal.

    One I really really liked was one goal Gretzky scored against the Colorado Rockies, I think it was in 1980 or 1981, he made some really nice dekes, putting the puck between the defensemen's legs, then dodging the goalie who was trying to pounce on the puck and putting it in an empty net. I think it's at least better than some of the goals on that top 10.

    Also, there were some Lemieux goals that were better than that split against Minnesota they show a thousand times a day.

    Like the one he put the puck between Bourque's skates?
    Or the one at the ASG?

    Yeah, that wasn't Lemieux's greatest. It was merely a fine example of what he can do.
