Lightsaber Slash (GIF)

Upon first glance, I always thought that Johan Franzen’s slash to the legs of Joe Thornton was rather weak.  That was before I knew Franzen’s stick was actually a lightsaber cable of chopping off the legs of the Sharks’ captain.

Many hockey pundits have credited Thornton for playing with a separated shoulder during the Sharks’ Western Conference Finals series against the Vancouver Canucks.  After watching this clip, I’d say he is more courageous for playing with two severed legs.
