Looking like you're about to beat the snot out of me = good.

Looking like Clay Aiken = bad.

  1. Good call. Hockey players should always look to thrash metal (see Scott Ian, Dimebag Darrell) and not American Idol when deciding how to style their facial hair.

  2. Should I be worried at BOTH of those pictures? I mean, the first one might beat me, but the second one will molest me as I sleep. (Maybe not the second since I'm female...)

  3. Back when they fought in the late 90's, Probert didn't need whiskers & ink to make Scottie look like a rag doll dropped to the floor by a careless toddler.

  4. And Probert was a coked out lunatic. What's your point?

  5. Tough as nails, yes. But that particular look also brings to mind "dumb as rocks".

  6. I didn't know Clay Aiken had signed a contract with the Stars

  8. Having met Scott more than a couple of times, I know he is tough but he's also one of the classiest players I've ever met. When in SJ, he always had time to talk to fans (OK, he didn't play that much with the Sharks) but he was a force on the ice. Tough guy, played hurt, did his job, long goatee, Harley rider, what the fuck more can you pussies ask for?
