Friday Youtube Yoinkage: November 13, 2009





Teeny Potvin is happy to be free of his plastic prison

Today's YouTube Yoinkage is in honour of Felix Potvin, who is represented by the little figure you see here. Potvin's time on the Leafs was before my time as a fan of the Leafs, but that doesn't mean I can't dedicate a FYY to him!

Clip one is a video of the famous Potvin/Hextall fight of 1996. My favourite parts are, in descending order: Potvin and Hextall collapsing on each other, Tie Domi talking smack, Wendel Clark's WTF face, and Doug Gilmour looking amused on the side.


Clip two: I'll be honest--I did a youtube search and since Felix wore number 29, this was the 29th video. It's about the coolest masks that the Leafs have had over the years. I don't know who decided this list, but judge for yourself:


Clip three is the introductions of the Western Conference All-Stars of 1996. Felix is one of the first ones into the game, but if you keep watching, other highlights include Mats Sundin WITH hair, Chris Chelios and Joe Sakic looking a bit similar, and Chris Osgood looking really, really creepy.

Always good to see Potvin love. Watching that Hextall beat-down never gets old.

that was an incredibly long Western Conference All-Star intro! crazy to see blasts from the past like Mike Gartner and Larry Murphy! Also, Toronto had (at least) 4 all-stars! Sundin, Potvin, Murphy, Gartner!

who would be the 4 all-stars now (based on merit)?

Kessel
Kaberle
who's next on that list?? sad :(

Love the cheesy/uber-lenthy guitar solos for the All-Star intros ... was it retro 80s metal night?

The All Star video made me feel really old. Is it just me or did Sundin have a David Bowie vibe going on?

PS- WTF Ozzie? WTF? I'm going to have nightmares about that now.
