Best hit (clean, dirty or otherwise) by a Canuck player

By a Canuck? Pick the most important game a canuck has laid a serious hit on an opponent and think about it. For me, no contest: Rome on Horton. Clean - at least to the point where once committed to the hit you can't let up. Not a head shot. No intent to injure. And it trumps other hits because it is in a more important game. And had a huge impact.

If Doughty's hit on D. Sedin was like that, and it resulted in a concussion, I would have had no problem with it. Seriously. Of course Doughty doesn't play clean, and DS would not have been caught the way Hortan was...

I thought this was pretty sweet. Its not NHL but it is delivered by a Canuck. Archi made this guy do a full flip.

not sure why it won't post the vid here but theres the link if interested

It's because of the https in the Youtube link.

I was thinking the same thing but it was Volpatti's hit on Wahl in the AHL when the Manitoba Moose were playing the Heat (I was actually at that game in Abby). Wahl was face-down on the ice out cold for like 5 minutes.

Bure on Churla hands down. He was being pushed around all game, Dallas was trying everything they could to run him, hurt him, whatever they could do to him.... I'm pretty sure they thought he would buckle, skilled russian kid who probably wouldnt even fight back.... he took it upon himself to fix that by looking after Churla. Easliy the biggest, most deserved hit by a Canuck player.

How about one that was called for a penalty? I can't remember the game, maybe Game 6, (but it was in Chicago), and I can't find video evidence of it but I remember at one point, Raffi Torres was going full steam ahead and was gliding in from the Hawks faceoff circle and tried hitting Seabrook but completely missed and crashed into the boards. Ref gives him a 2 minute boarding penalty.

Maybe it was the same game he nailed Seabrook behind his own net later on in the game but I clearly remember that absurd penalty. He hit nothing. Missed Seabrook entirely.. And gets a 2 min boarding penalty.
