That was the story at that time, that Shack took figure skating lessons.
In one of his early seasons, I was sat in the 300s behind the net, and there were large passages of play where I couldn't take my eyes off of him, regardless of where the puck was - he was just so smooth and effortless moving around the ice; i was with my dad during that game, and kept remarking how memorizing it was just watching him shift after shift, ignoring completely where the puck was lol
Worst skater I've ever seen live - Nik Antropov.
Was like watching someone with toothpick legs wade through quick-sand.
I'm not saying Jason Allison is slow.
Legend has it, he's still trying to finish off his shootout attempt from 2005 against the Sens.
Eddie "The Entertainer" was on the radio earlier this week. Did you know that he chose #23 because it is ES backwards ??
Did not know that. Eddie was a hoot.
A giraffe on skates
Surprised no one has mentioned Hal Gill. Pretty much a slug but man that reach!
I recall David Clarkson on his ass for half the games here
And that he was illiterate. Once had to hitch hike back to Toronto because he couldn't read a train schedule.
My friend who is also a Leafs fan, built an ice fishing shack and was painting it blue and white. I told him you should call it “Eddie”. He said why? I said “Eddie Shack”. He said that’s a great idea. He painted Eddie on the front and Shack with #23 on the back. He had it on Facebook and I guess some how Eddie Shack found out about it and actually went there and ice fished with my buddy. He thought that was pretty cool.
Jason Allison was painful to watch skate.
i just love that the swedes look so effortless and pretty when skating Mats Sundin was poetry on ice and i like William Nylander a lot
Mogilny was smooth af too
Kappy and Marner are fast but not as pretty skaters
Jason Allison omg holy f*** like i have no words he was such a f***ing slow skater and his style was so f***ing ugly it brings me to tears (not to be dramatic but)
also Lumme and Aki Berg
and Tie Domi
