    Rank these body checks:

    Phaneuf on Malkin WJC 2004, Phaneuf last night, Brule last night?

    I'd say:

    1) Phaneuf on Malkin
    2) Brule on WHL vs Russia
    3) Phanuef on WHL vs Russia

    Wow that little Brule at 5'10, that was a great clean hit :bow:

    The Brulé hit ranks at #1 among those imo. It was clean, hard, coming of nowhere and unsuspected. It gave the WHL team so tempo too, right at the beginning of the game. I think that those are momentum hits. Especially when it comes from skilled forwards.

    Brule hit one of best ever

    Bodychecking is one of the skills he is very good at. Too bad he had the Flu and couldn't play much after that hit.

    Don't forget the Phanuef hit on MA Pouliot during the top prospects game.

    There are a number of hits from both guys that are pretty damn big.

    Phaneuf on Olesz takes the cake.

  9. Talking about little guys... Anybody remember that textbook hipcheck Bergeron laid on Morrow in the 2003 Playoffs. Absolute beauty.

    I think I've got an animated gif of that

    Can we also include Ovechkin's hit on Gonchar?

    More like a mistake. It would be hard to make a prediction for the 2004 WJHC, since it already happened.

    My favourite junior hit was Brind'Amour on Mogilny in the WJC's years ago.

    Lets not forget the hit Darcy Tucker laid on Sami Kapanen during Game-6 of last years series againgt Philly. I believed it occurred during overtime.

    For some reason I always remembered that as Hudler and not Olesz. Or am I thinking of another hit? I really have a poor memory actually :dunno:

    Didn't someone level Hudler last year?

    Nope, my mem was definitely wrong. It was Olesz. I need to have something fixed.
