Cameron Michael Neely

It's good to see that, in spite of the current turmoil in the hockey world, John Buccigross still managed to roll out his annual "Put Cam in the Hall of Fame!!!" column.

Neely (Whenever I see Neely I think Nelly and whenever I see Nelly, I think Neely. Help me.) had a game that was intoxicating to those who watched it. He won his fights, scored more goals per game than almost every player who ever played, and got the girls. He also had one of the strongest list of Hollywood friends in NHL history: Michael J. Fox, Glenn Close, Denis Leary and the Farrelly Brothers are just some who were and are fans of No. 8, and they have embellished Neely's legend with characters like Seabass. Neely even has one of the all time best ESPN ad lines of all time: "Why don't you kick my dog while you're here?"

That commercial, by the way, is one of the best things I have ever seen on television.
