In our quest to freshen up the programming here at The Hockey Junkies, we asked that you guys send us ideas and posts. We had no idea that we would get the outcome that we did. So thank you.
This is one of those posts. This comes from ChunkySids, possibly one of the top seven best pen names ever.
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Many things in the NHL are constantly changing with each game; lines, save percentages, availability of players, amount of teeth and sometimes even the coaching staff. One thing that does not change is the appearance of our beloved men on ice, or so we thought. Though the 2010-11 season is still a new born screaming with excitement and $100 million healthy scratches, an interesting trend has started to occur; hockey player’s hair is becoming a center of attention. This is important especially because it controls the aerodynamics of the game and not because we want to dip one player’s head in oil and rub it all over our bodies or latch onto another’s because of the luxurious flow. Let’s take a look at some of our league leaders…
Henrik Lundqvist – New York Rangers
My Lord, have you ever seen hair like this?! It’s perfectly coiffed and that wave is just delightful. He should have his own styling commercial.
Patrick Sharp – Chicago Blackhawks
Speaking of styling commercial, why hasn’t someone given one to Patrick Sharp?
Olli Jokinen – Calgary Flames
Bald is perfection for him. Could you imagine this man with hair? I picture a massive tuft of fiery red hair explosion but that could just be due to his team’s name…
Drew Miller – Detroit Red Wings
Sometimes a touch of grey is all you need to be a fox even if you are 26.
Taylor Pyatt – Phoenix Coyotes
The hair is perfect and does not move; he is the Pauly D of the NHL plus he comes with permanent guyliner.
Scott Hartnell – Philadelphia Flyers
The full moon curse has finally ended.
Niklas Hjalmarsson – Chicago Blackhawks
Old and sexy
New and sexy
Hair or no hair, you are still a true Swede shot-blocking machine.
Patrick Kane – Chicago Blackhawks
If you cannot grow a playoff beard, cut into that curly blonde thicket!
Adam Burish – Dallas Stars
What is going on in this picture? He looks like he just finished a class at the Flashdance Academy.
Nicklas Backstrom – Washington Capitals
This can be fixed but the fact that he has neglected his mop for so long makes me ill.
Dion Phaneuf – Toronto Maple Leafs
Personally, I like him as a player but this small hair sprout is identical to the plants you pick up in Mario games.
Eric Boulton – Atlanta Thrashers
The hair on his head is not so bad but I am very concerned that his beard was inspired by a feminine landing strip…
T.J. Oshie – St. Louis Blues
Not only is he not Asian as his last name suggests but he is challenging Justin Bieber in the 15-year-old boy with out-of-control hair category.
With some help from Rogaine and his friends, Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks can flourish with beauty once again.
Dave Bolland – Chicago Blackhawks
It’s feathered, it’s thick, and it’s BEAUTIFUL.
