Day 19: I figure it'll come down to the eyes.

Competitor #1: Raffi Torres
Made the second round by taking the innocence from Ales Hemsky. His strengths include his ability to pound you repetitively up against the boards. His weakness? He might not know when to stop. His parents might be cheering you on.


Competitor #2: Joffrey Lupul
While fellow Pronger-gate compensation, Smid, is onto the next round, Lupul doesn't have that much of an innocence factor over Raffi. His strengths include his ability to woo most women (and possibly men) into his lair with his deep dark eyes. His weakness? His lair might be in Fort Saskatchewan.

Vote now or forever hold your peace.

(P.S. I'm not going to say anything more about the voting. You vote for whatever reason you want! But if, God Forbid, Steve Staios wins this thing, you weren't voting with your eyes.)

VOTING OVER! TORRES STARES DOWN LUPUL AND WINS!

i vote for raffi
his crazy eyes scare me but
big hits turn me on

Ava said...

Raffi was looking pretty good in the playoffs with the full out beard going on, but unfortunately, it looks like The Worm has resurfaced. Therefore, Lupul gets my vote... even though I really wish his parents would have just named him Jeffrey.

sammy said...

I voted for Raffi previously, but I'm afraid all of his big hits can't compete against Joffrey Lupul's eyes. Even if his lair is in Fort Saskatchewan, I am happy to be wooed :) Lupul!

ravishing raffi torres

grace said...

I vote for Raffi. Joffrey hasn't done enough as an Oiler to woo me where as Raffi in the playoffs? ::swoon::


AND I HATE EVERY SINGLE LAST ONE OF YOU WHO VOTED FOR CRAIG OVER RYAN. (PS: As a result, Jordi, Ethan's off the block and mine all mine)

I "met" (as in I saw her acting like a pre-madonna outside the Oilers dressing room) his wife in the playoffs and she looked exactly like how you'd picture a puck bunny to look and Craig looked whipped and no whipped man can be a hot oil to me.

Megan said...

Torres for sure.

Loxy said...

Lupul be supa-hot, yo.

Dominique said...

Lupul. Torres kind of frightens me although I'm not sure why. Plus he looks like he's trying to hypnotize you with his eyes in that pic. And seriously, what's with the bleached out hair, did we go back in time to 1996 and no one told me?

Daggit said...

I bet Raffi speaks Spanish and that is HOT. CALIENTE.

afterburner said...

Raffi's big hits are hotter than Lupul's pretty eyes. So Torres gets my vote.

Black Dog Hates Skunks said...

I;m going for Raffi although I'm starting to warm to Joffrey a little - saw a piece on him the other night. He was asked who his favourite Oiler growing up was.

Big smile.

"Craig MacTavish"

Good sense of humour.

Still, Raffi.

She said...

Must...not...fall...under...the...spell

Resist the hypno-eyes and go with the known quantity.

Torres.

margee said...

Raffi Torres.

Give credit where credit is due: he looks better with the full playoff beard than most look clean shaven.

grace said...

I'm now campaigning for my men given yesterday's COMPLETE AND UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT.

You guys cannot be trusted here so I've instructed my readers (all 2 of them) to come vote for who I want or I'm kicking their asses!

Loxy said...

I said I wasn't going to say anything again, but...

Joffrey hasn't done enough as an Oiler to woo me where as Raffi in the playoffs? ::swoon::

It's not about what they've done! It's how they look! No wonder your guys keep losing!

Exclamation mark! Exclamation mark!

WhoreableGuy said...

I just noticed that Zack Stortini is not even in the competition....WTF?!11one

Anyways, Raffi gets mah vote.

Sherry said...

Lupul.

I'm sure those eyes and that smile will distract from Fort Saskatchewan...I don't even know where that is. It can't be that bad...can it?

Anyways, long time reader but first time commenter, love to see the females representing ;D

hockeygirl said...

Lupul.

Oh, those eyes...

Seriously, what makes you squee on first glance? Raffi's chin thing or those eyes...

The eyes have it...

I can't stop saying it, I think I'm hypnotized.

amy said...

This is tough... But I'm going to have to go with Raffi

T. said...

I know I mentioned it last round but I'm going to go with the dream again - I once had a very excellent dream about Raffi and therefore he gets my vote!

Although I do wish the dye job would go away. And once again I miss the beard - can't wait for it's return in April.

Pam (chopper) said...

I have loved Raffi since he was 1st traded the the Oilers and playing in Hamiltion in the AHL with Stoll in March of 2003; but I think Lupul is becoming my 'newest' Oilers crush, since he is so pretty.

(btw, calling a guy 'pretty' to a guy friend makes that guy friend refer to said pretty guy (Lupul) as gay. So tip for you - don't tell your guy friends that you think Lupul is 'pretty', cuz they will all respond by saying "Lupul is gay".)

Anycrap, I have to go with my original Oilers crush of Mr. Raphael Torres (I do happen to love how he plays the game as well, so I am not just all 'puckbunny' over him), cuz there is something about a hot Cdn. born Spanish hockey player that bleaches his red hair. :P
Plus, he has cute deer-caught-in-the-headlights type eyes.

Jordi said...

LUPUL IS FLAMING HOT AS ST HELENS

I sure would like to rough him up in Fort Saskatchewan.

And I'm not fully awake so screw you all! I have the hots for Staios!

J.R. Hippe said...

Lupul.

D. said...

Loops.

lowetide said...

Two guys from the all-hands team this early in the competition shows just how much skill there is on the team.

I met Lupul. It was on a golf course, his group were up first and I remember distinctly thinking "well hell he's not a tremendous athlete from the looks of him."

He hit the ball off the tee so far that it appeared to hit a small plane flying by. Bastard.

Lupul.

Jordi said...

I just have to post this since after all it's a competition and I like Lupul and thisisthemostadorablethingever.

Lupul high fives kids!

I'm still not fully awake but now at least I know Lupul likes children.

allan said...

Lupul. I can't see Torres without thinking "plows", and that's not good.

DAMN YOU WHOEVER POSTED THAT!

Alana said...

You'll notice that Lupul is high-fiving a Flames fan. TRAITOR!

sammy said...

Grace: MacT looked whipped??? NOOOO! He just doesn't seem like a man who would be whipped...more like he would do the whipping ;) This is highly disappointing - I may have to change my vote in the next round.

penalty said...

coin toss again.

winneris Lupul

Jordi said...

alana: yeah but the cameras didn't catch the next part where Lupul bitchslapped the kid down.

Scarlett said...

I'm taking Raffi. Why? I have no idea.

cat said...

Lupul. Raffi doesn't do much for me. Bleached hair? Chin worm? Meh. ("Plows"? hehehe.)

Lupul, on the other hand, is dreamy. I love how he always talks with a big smile on his face. Cuuuuuute!

mudcrutch79 said...

I have it good authority that Raffi does speak Spanish. Here's a snippet from a recent phone conversation:

...So, el cuento largo corto, usted debe tomar alguna penicilina y aclarar. Hable con usted Sarah posterior. el derecho ..Shelly, arrepentido.

This is a terrible matchup. Raffi looks like every red headed bonehead on the oil patch and Lupul is pretty.

I vote MacT. Again.

court said...

I agree with afterburner. Fierce = hot. Besides, Lupul has Mighty Duck cooties.

Anonymous said...

Loops is wearing man-capris in that high-five picture. That takes some major cahoneys to pull off.

I'll cast my vote for Lupul, based on his superb golf skills: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWcSvgKkWcE

the Prez said...

Lupul looks like Winchester's aunt. My strange crush on Raffi Torres continues, so I'll obviously pick him. But Ulanov is sexier.

Pleasure Motors said...

Man, I'm going to be sorely, sorely disappointed if Torres keeps winning these things. How can you look at that landing strip and say he's sexy? He looks like the type of guy who would high-five his friend while having sex with you doggy style over one of the urinals at Sidebar.

Also, mudcrutch: hilarious.

Alana said...

I predict that this will be Raffi's final victory -- the big hits can only take him so far. Also, I agree that mudcrutch is hilarious.

Oilers fan says....

all ya'll that said Joffrey Lupul's eyes are crazy hot, but he himself is hot. His eyes are clearly the best and so cute

my vote is to Joffrey Lupul, his gorgeous face and beautiful eyes are like to drown in
