John Wensink And The North Stars Challenge

Ahhhh 1970’s hockey. A time when pretty much everything was allowed and for good reason. Even though I didn’t live through it, the game was so much better back then. Alas, times have changed and while I don’t disagree with the safety of players, there’s one thing that should always remain… fights.

johnwensinkJohn “Moose” Wensink was from Maxville, Ontario and one arguably one of the meanest and craziest fighters of the time. Along with Stan Jonathan and Terry O’Reilly, you did not want to mess with the Bruins.

Apparently the Minnesota North Stars weren’t smart enough for that. Watch Wensink  go crazy on Alex Pirus then challenge the entire Minnesota bench before the ensuing brawl.


Trash Talk Tuesday: Claude Giroux, Peter Laviolette And Steve Ott

372921_326576790701382_2071161426_nThis took place during the Flyers/Rangers 24/7 HBO special. Giroux and Ott are lined up for a faceoff when Ott takes it upon himself to tell everyone that he knows how to use the internet.

After the period is over, he has a fun little altercation with Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette. Lavy’s reaction afterwards is priceless.


Trash Talk Tuesday: “You’re The Best Bellows!”

This one makes me die laughing every time I watch it.

This took place during the 1991 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Kevin Stevens and Bryan Trottier try to intimidate Bryan Bellows of the North Stars.

There are some great one liners in here. Oh, and check out Jagr’s mullet at 0:22.
