A few weeks ago, there was Twitter outrage about a Calgary Herald feature on “Counting down 30 hottest hockey players of 2011” [link]. Turns out the writer is actually from the Vancouver Sun, which seemed to explain a lot to you guys.
We thought the start of 2012 should have a look back at WUYS Foxy Friday honorees of the past:
Now, we try to share the love around the NHL – it wouldn’t be much fun if every Foxy Friday were a Capital, Bruin, Blackhawk or Penguin. (Be honest, they could fill a whole year.) And this isn’t a “countdown” per se, just a random sampling of wares. The Calgary Sun piece has some glaring omissions and weird rankings (Kris Letang is #11? Unless #1-10 are all Crosby, you’re nuts.), but at least Mike Green made the list. (Yes, I know he’s from Calgary.)
As we move through this year, Chuck and I sometimes have a little trouble selecting our weekly stud. There’s no shortage, but we try to be diplomatic. So keep the suggestions coming!
