    :sarcasm:


    Just a joke from a thread I saw on the main board proclaiming Colton Orr the toughest fighter in the NHL.

    Colton Orr, meet Nathan MacKinnon. MacKinnon shrugged him off like Orr was Nathan Gerbe and Orr had him lined up.


    On a serious note, holy **** am I excited about this kid

    Pretty sick build for a 18 year old. He's going to be awesome.

    Awesome seeing Orr bounce right off him. Forsberg was the master of that.

    He's only going to get bulkier and stronger on his skates as time goes by too, especially if he keeps on training with Duchene and O'Brien and the gang.

    Mooseheads fan here - one thing you will see as he has more time with the puck, is that Nate is very solid on his feet and is not easily knocked off the puck.

    You got a deal, let me ring Colin Campbell to make it so. :laugh:

    Orr looked so stunned as he was getting up. He definitely wasn't expecting that to happen. I think Nate was ripped off, he deserved the hit, not Colton. :dunno:

    He did this all the time in Juniors and it really fires up a hometown crowd:

    Example #1



    #2 - from 0:20-0:30

    How about Varly in the beginning of that clip?

    He is starting to look more and more like Roy ;)

    But Mac is an absolute stud.
