St. Louis Blues tough guy Bam Bam Janssen had a couple of good tussles last night and continues to make a case for the title of the leagues supreme pound for pound scrapper. With Blues enforcer of the future DJ King on the injured shelf for the season, Bam Bam is taking advantage of the opportunity and showing the organization that he is a piece of the rebuilding effort. He is only 5'11, 205 lbs, but that has not prevented him from engaging with some serious behemoth heavyweights. Its guys like this I root for, he's not the biggest or the fastest, but he does what it takes to maintain a roster spot in the big league.

Keeping with the inadvertent theme of dandy nicknames for the week and the intentional premise of discussing fighters of years past who have worn the same sweater as the featured combatant I will bring one Tony Twist into the scrum. Twist was pretty fun to watch and from 95-98' who was the maximum heavyweight champion of the league. "Twister" was a sinister smash artist and always dropped the mitts with the intention of administering a seriously violent subjugation. While I will never forgive the Twister for generating an unprecedented Probert turtle, I will extend full gratitude his way for giving me the oppurtunity to tag this blog a Quebec Nordique entry.
