In reverse order.
Moment Number Five:
Now, as far as Neither Lecavalier, nor Iginla are exactly known for their fighting prowess. And really, this laughable slap-fest pretty much resembles Oren Koules and ’s tickle fights during the ownership wars before Gary Bettman was called ingo, this is really about as lackluster as it gets.
to tickle them both until they stopped to mediate the situation.
So, you’re probably wondering ‘ok, so why would this be in the top five then?’
The answer is simple. This moment signified what hockey used to be. Two team leaders fighting each other during the most important series of their lives. Leaders showing their team what needs to be done to win the cup. Not just skating fast, and making cool moves, and celebrating every goal like it’s a touchdown. And not sucker punching the guy they are fighting in the crotch. They showed what it really means to be a leader.This was a true hockey moment. At the end of the video: "John Tortorella loved it." So did we John. So did we.
Moment Number Four:
Vinny scores 52 goals in 2006-2007, and wins the Rocket Richard trophy.
Not much needs to be said. This is what happens when he’s healthy, and gets the appropriate linemates.
Note to Rick Tocchet and staff: Did you notice how many times Martywas in the video?
Moment Number Three:
Lecavalier scores with his eye gouged out. Again, leadership. Any normal human being who just crapped out his own eyeball would at least skate to the bench and take a shift. Not Vinny. He stays on the ice and scores a goal. This moment reminds me a lot of Marty St. Louis skating around with the cup bleeding. Ah, the good ole days.
Moment Number Two:
First of all, let it be known that He’s over in Russia looking for it now, so if anyone saw where it went after this goal, please give him a call.is still looking for his jock strap.
That being said, Lecavalier scores, survives an attempted beheading, and then annihilates Dennis Gauthier. Gauthier still has an imprint on his face of Lecavalier’s fist. He calls it “a birth mark.” Evidently it’s the first birth mark in history to actually spell something. ( Champions 2004)
Moment Number One:
(At 3:08 in this video)
Vinny hoists the cup. The crowning achievement in hockey, and the best moment of my life. This video brings tears to my eyes.
