Someone removed the term "Black Canadian" to describe Eddie Martin, including the hyperlink to the well-researched and well-written page on Black Canadians. I undid that and put the Black Canadian term back in. Normally I wouldn't point out a person's racial or ethnic background, but in this specific context it is important. By removing the "Black Canadian" reference, the editor helped to erase the history of Black Canadians in the formation of Canadian hockey and spirit, a process that is ongoing in the media today. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MrEvilGuy (talk • contribs) 23:09, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Contradiction without sources
The following statements appear to contradict one another:
- Al Iafrate holds the record during an NHL All-Star skills competition at 105.2 mph.
- The hardest slap shot on record is 106.6 mph set by Chad Kilger on December 3rd, 2006 during the Toronto Maple Leafs skills competition. Kilger broke the record of 106.0 mph, held by Shawn Heins, set in AHL All-Stars game.
- Bobby Hull is credited with the hardest slapshot on record, clocked on one occasion at a speed of 118.3 mph.
Article states that the slapshot is the 'hardest' shot. Does this mean 'most difficult' or 'most powerful'? If meant to say most powerful, then wording should be changed. 'Hardest' is also used again later in the article. Ambiguous in this occurrence as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 09:41, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
The wiki of both Chad Kilger and Bobby Hull has a reference to their hard shots. They don't contradict for simple reasons. Al Iafrate holds the old record (now broken by Chara) for NHL All-Star shenanigans. Kilger set his during a Leafs skill competition. Bobby Hull set his ages ago, though he did use a stick which by today's standards would be illegal (because of weight and stiffness). BTW, Hull's wrist shot was clocked at 105... As McInnis said, so much for technology eh? --Signed by a hockey head —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 05:52, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
