Top Ten Mullets of All-time in the NHL

I decided to do a little poll to see who everyone thought had the best mullet of all time in the history of the national hockey league (actually, since the 1970’s I guess.) I received over 600 votes, so thank you to everyone!

Now of course not everyone made the “cut”, so let’s see who’s mullets just weren’t good enough…

Honorable Mentions:

Billy Ray Cyrus and Uncle Jesse

I don’t care. If you are doing any type of poll that involves the word mullet, these men deserve their rightful place in the countdown. Plus, Billy received two write in votes and Uncle Jesse (from Full House I’m assuming), received one.

Petr Klima (10 votes)

Roberto Luongo (28 votes)

Chris Simon (30 votes)

Simon’s mullet is definitely in my personal top five, but unfortunately the voters didn’t feel the same.

Ryan Smyth (31 votes)

Wayne Gretzky (32 votes)

Sorry all mighty great one. You can’t be in the top ten of everything I guess.

And the top ten are:

10. George Parros (35 votes)

If Parros didn’t have the mustache to compliment the mullet, I doubt he would be in the top ten.

9. Guy Lafleur (36 votes)

“The Flower” helped pave the way for many things in the NHL… Including the mullet.

8. Brian Engblom (39 votes)

I cannot begin to explain Engblom’s mullet. There are so many things going on there…

7. Al Iafrate (42 votes)

Iafrate took the mullet to a new level. We now know this type of hairstyle as the skullet.

6. Marty McSorley (44 votes)

In the 90’s, McSorley’s mullet ruled the west coast. Those luscious golden locks could not be topped over there.

5. Patrick Kane (49 votes)

There are two things that are certain in the NHL playoffs. There will be a Stanley Cup champion and Patrick Kane will sport the same style of mullet that my brother had back in 1990 when he was in kindergarten.

4. Adam McQuaid (54 votes)

If anyone can really pull a mullet off in the 21st century, it’s definitely Adam McQuaid. His mullet is such a talking point around the league, that it has its own HF Board thread. (I also love that McQuaid received the same amount of votes as his number for the Bruins!)

3. Barry Melrose (55 votes)

Barry Melrose has had a mullet pretty much his whole life. Even at the age of 54, he is still sporting the hair-do that went out of style more than 15 years ago.

2. Jaromir Jagr (56 votes)

Well, this is a given. For basically his whole NHL career, Jagr has donned one of the ugliest mullets in the history of mankind. We can only hope that it makes its comeback right along side Jagr for this upcoming season.

And the number one mullet of all-time in the NHL is………………………..

Bob Probert with 64 votes!!!!!!!!!!!

Face it. He made that mullet look good. R.I.P. Probie.

(Please remember that this was voted on by fans.)

Todd Bertuzzi Vs. Matt Cooke

While I realize that me writing this may not change any opinions, I just have to put it out there. I love Todd Bertuzzi. I despise Matt Cooke. But, let’s give a fair comparison.

Bertuzzi:

This is the original hit and it also shows what Bertuzzi was retaliating for. I understand that it was a sucker punch and he in no way ever should of done it.

And here is Bertuzzi’s apolgy…

Cooke:

(You might want to mute your computer. Some of these are the Pittsburgh feed.)

And now for the one that really pisses me off more than anything…

And of course Matt Cooke would apologize for that like Bertuzzi did, right? Nope. He sounds like such a coward during this. “Ohh their guy hit me the shift before like that and I got up.” With that statement, I think it proves that he knew what the hell he was doing. He was going for retaliation. (And the hit that Cooke received that game was not dirty.)

And Don Cherry has some excellent points. I am not a Crosby fan at all, but in this case, I give him a little credit. He’s clearly ashamed of his teammate as Grapes points out.

And just to make me smile…

You can say whatever you want about Matt Cooke, but frankly I don’t care if he donates to charity, is a good dad (which judging by the 24-7 series, he isn’t) or any other lame excuse Pens fans come up with. Those things have nothing to do with his playing career. He continues to do douchebag thing after douchebag thing. If he comes back next season and doesn’t do any of these things anymore, I will stop with all the hate that I give him. I will still hate him, but I won’t do it publicly. But, I think I’ve proved my point. Bertuzzi had a one time incident and had/has remorse. He continues to regret what he did and he still pays for it every time he goes to Colorado and most of Canada. I have seen no remorse out of Matt Cooke except a piss poor interview where he said “I need to change my ways.”

(Also, my apologizes if any of Cooke’s dirty hits were not included. There are just so many of them. And, in case any of you were wondering why I didn’t put in the Bertuzzi “armpit hit” from the 2010-2011 season, that is because when the coach of the receiving team a.k.a. Joel Quennville, says that he is “okay without a suspension on Bertuzzi”, I in no way can consider it a dirty hit.)
