THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING AND BY PUDDING I MEAN MARTIN BRODEUR'S HAIR

by Anne

Ok so yesterday I jokingly said that Roysie came along with Millsey to NYC to help style the boys for their media blitz in Manhattan. QUITE UNEXPECTEDLY, I have unearthed proof that it MIGHT NOT be a joke. This picture was found in a lost and discarded corner of the world.... the NHL Insider article on NHL.com.

Check out Marty's hair:


That is a CLASSIC Derek Roy fauxhawk if I have ever seen one.
AND. I. HAVE.


COMPARE THE TWO IF YOU WILL:



PUDDING, MEET PROOF.


Why else would a self-respecting man of Martin Brodeur's age and Vezina winning status be wearing such a ludicrous hairstyle. This style is meant for 16 year olds and men who want to look taller... er, um, I mean more RAAWKING, not that they're short. Not that its a BAD thing to be short. Aw hell.

On the plus side, at least Marty didn't rock this Classic Roysie style:


CAN YOU HANDLE THE HOT?
You just want to run your fingers through it

OR Classic Pommer:


Let's face it, Little Amerk Roysie was afraid Pommer might be the prettiest one on the team so he made him believe this was the hairstyle that would get him all the laydeez

OR He could've gone with my new personal favorite:


Retro Vanek
Complete with birthday cake elephant decorations

EPIC.

  1. OH MY GOSH the old skool Vanek is the best thing I've seen all week. Thank you for that!

    I love Royzie's hair experiments. LOL the fauxhawk was pretty hot- i mean hawt- I'm not gonna lie. But I also like the long flowing mullet look. What can I say, I'm a sucker for old school hockey hair. Or I'm just a hopeless Royzie fangirl and I don't care what he is or isn't wearing and what his hair looks like. That's closer to the truth.

    ooh Pommer, i do love the white boy fro. And by love I mean I'm terrified of it. but I had hair just like that when I was six. Seriously. It was painful!

  2. Please, Henrik Lundquist, this is an intervention. Please back away from the tanning booth. You now look like you have jaundice. This is not a good look.

    For the love of GOD, man.

  3. All the hair, oh man. The Vanek one is pricess... I love eveyrhting about it.

    I used to have the best picture of Pommers when he must have straightened his fro, it was classic!
    Instead, I've found the extremes, crazy helmet hair fro and slightly mullet-y wet look. The ideas that these guys get!

  4. whoa the slightly mullet-y wet look is kinda hot. But like I already said, I like mullet-y hockey hair. ;)

  5. one more- why is Henrik wearing a suit and tie when Vinny is bustin the Don Johnson look and Marty is looking casual but decent. Mr. Lundqvist is too dressed up for this occasion. tone it down my man.

    (I'm done now, I promise!)

    Men of the curly haired variety tend to have the most interesting hair phases. Roysie clearly thinks he's trick follicle gold with the fauxhawk.

    I was under the impression that Swedes were a pale people and therefore mostly unable to bake until golden brown. Henrik has probably spent years working on a base tan.

    I think Henrik got the Detroit Red Wings' "Europeans are better dressers" bulletin and ran with it. Vinny and Marty are like "Screw that, we're gonna try to look all LA. Except for the playing for the Kings part cuz YEESH."

  10. Oh oh the faux! I agree with Mary, Vanek wins in the hair department as well.

    And Yes to jobs!
