Rob Schremp, he of YouTube shootout fame, decided to put himself back on the hockey map by scoring a goal in an unusual way a couple of nights ago. However, Schremp's style of scoring goals was already done by another this year: Marian Hossa. Today, HBIC wants to show both goals to determine which one was a better mid-air, baseball-swing goal. Of course, comments are certainly welcome on this topic, so let's go to the videos.
First, Rob Schemp, Islanders vs. Colorado Avalanche:
Marian Hossa's goal, however, looked a lot like Schremp's goal, only it was more of a golf chipshot than a true baseball swing:
Hossa hit it from a knee-high location as opposed to a chest-level swing.
Which one is better? Which one required more skill? Personally, Hossa was skating forward at the time, so it requires a little more timing and luck to tap the pass forward out of mid-air and then swing and score. However, that's just me.
Two beauty goals this season, and I'm hoping for more.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
