This fits just right: Top 5 NHL Playoff Beards of the Last 10 Years. Can't believe Dano isn't there, but Commodore and, of course, Scotty Nieds are good, too.

Nieds post-Devils play iff beard is repulsive. He looks like a total jerkoff. Maybe he felt all Yule Gibbons but he looked like a self-sustaining cult leader. Everything Niedermayer does that bugs the sh!t out of me Stevens does right. Stevens is Dick Proenneke to Neids's Christopher McCandless.

I think it has more to do with unity than anything else. Everyone wears a helmet during warmups, everyone -- whether you're NHL, AHL or ECHL -- plays for a team called the Devils, everyone wears a suit and tie on the road, everyone is clean shaven.

It's all that "no individual is bigger than the team" thing. Lou's big into that kind of stuff.

If "everyone wearing a helmet" and everyone shaving is some important resemblance of team unity than that is absurd. That doesn't make or break team unity. It is way beyond that. The rule is stupid, and if it is still in place I expect it to die like many other ridiculous things/rules in this organization once LL is finally gone....

Ahh 3cups... so much for you to learn. Maybe you won't grasp the "no facial hair rule," as silly and trivial as it is -- but you will one day understand how much weight the seemingly trivial often has.

So you are going to honestly come on this board and tell me that the no facial hair rule means something?!!? It certainly hasn't equated to any postseason success in the past 7 years.... Please inform me oh wise one....What good does this ridiculous rule do?

It infuriates fans who have nothing better to talk about.

In seriousness though, lots of team-building exercises -- from boot camp to fraternity pledging -- involve the individuals shedding their individuality while working to become one as a unit. Same clothes, same haircuts, same facial hair (or lack thereof), etc. can all be a part of that. It isn't uncommon.

What would be weird would be if a guy like Lou didn't try to implement stuff like this.

When you're in charge of something you get to set the policies. It's a belief system. We can speculate all day on why or why not, but clearly LL wants his team to act in certain ways that are within his discretion.

you have your opinion that it is ridiculous. Clearly there are several organizations in different spots that feel differently. That's their prerogative.

I'd have to have the barber or someone else shave my stubble. I'm too lazy to shave it myself. I'd constantly be written up.

That rule was the worst rule ever. I hope it's gone. Poor Johnny Oduya had to keep his awesome beard at bay in NJ, no wonder he's happy in Atlanta.


Johnny Oduya would look like Kyp Malone by now

Its like football players with hair that covers their name plate on their jerseys. :rolleyes:


If it doesnt effect the play....big deal. Saying ofcourse that you dont end up like Billy Gibbons.

Because the team is winning so people need something to complain about?

(I do think it's a pointless rule, though...)

I've always thought it was dumb, I just would never talk about it unless there was an existing thread on it

This was my first thought too. Personally I think the NHL should mandate each Flyers player go into full werewolf mode to cover up those ugly mugs. Can only be an improvement.

You do know that Devil fans are so used to being in the playoffs that people save their money for the later rounds, right? Triumph
