As chosen by our readers, Washington Capitals center Brooks Laich!
The Saskatchewan native with the dreamy blue eyes racked up some respectable numbers in 2009-10: 25 goals and 34 assists in 78 games in the regular season; two goals, one assist and one spare tire in their seven postseason games against the Canadiens (Moment of Silence on Raven’s behalf, please.)
We love, love, love Laich! Oh, NHL training camp. You can’t come soon enough.
The Ladies… have an innate sense of right and wrong. For example, this trade that Montreal made yesterday to ship their better goaltender to the Blues? Wrong. Horribly, horribly wrong.
It should probably be wrong to have to choose between two hot hockey players, but we’re making you do that anyway. We’re down to two gentlemen in our NHL Playoffs of Hotness. Vote now through Monday night at 9pm Eastern.
If loving these hot men is wrong, we don’t want to be right.
First off, congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks!!! While Hawks captain Jonathan Toews was eliminated in Round 2, I’m sure he’ll be happy with the consolation hardware he collected on the ice.
So hockey is officially over until October, but we’re not done with hockey here. It’s Conference Finals time! We’re down to the final four, and the polls close on Sunday night at 8pm EST. So vote away after the jump.
That’s right, get pumped!! Even though neither of these lovely men are in the actual NBA finals, they are your finalists in the 1st Annual Ladies…NBA Playoffs of Hotness! Vote wisely – winner will be announced next Monday, so voting ends Sunday night at midnight!
Ovi is the new Hendrix. That, or he's testing his Jedi mind powers to move matter.
Readers, you have raised my eyebrows. Sid the Kid, knocked out of the first round by Flyer Mike Richards. Steckel, running away with the votes in his tiebreaker against RYAN KESLER (and NO, Raven, that baby photo was not a ploy ;))
The Divisional Semis are complete. Round 2 heats up with eight fellas worthy of Blanche Devereaux’s attention (rest in peace, Rue). Make your choice after the jump now through Sunday at 8PM Eastern. Continue reading →
Apologies on my tardiness – I too was somewhat stuck in the haze that is the holiday weekend. Plus I realized that I might be rushing this a bit, given that Game 1 of the actual finals isn’t even until tomorrow. On that note, I’m going to slow this down a bit and give everyone a much longer chance to cast their votes on the semifinals. Take a look, think hard, and vote away!
Hope you can forgive us for taking an extended holiday weekend (as for the Canadian, my excuse was Monday night soccer for one of my little Bees).
Thanks for all who voted in the first round of our NHL Playoffs of Hotness. Polls are now closed – or at least, they’re supposed to be. Polldaddy wasn’t playing nice earlier. Anyway, we have one wee little problem preventing us from moving on to Round Two.
Imagine: if we were writing this 30 years ago, we likely would have included him.
Now that we’ve given away the hardware for this year’s NHL Playoff Beards Awards (props to Raven for her excellent research once again), we bring you the NHL Playoffs of Hotness.
This works just like the NBA edition. Vote for the hockey hottie you love. We’ll narrow down the choices bracket-style over the next couple of weeks. Thanks to our readers for their suggestions on such short notice! Don’t worry: we’ve included a few guys from the Stanley Cup finalists Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers.
You have until Monday at 8pm Eastern to cast your vote. Yes, we’re making our readers work hard these days! Continue reading →
As promised last Monday (and thanks to everyone who left suggestions!), it is time for the NBA Playoffs of Hotness to begin! Cast your votes for Round 1 until this Thursday at 8am – Round 2 will be posted by noon!
Recently, we here at Ladies… got to thinking: there are all of these playoffs, finals, big events, championships, etc. going on, especially this time of year. And while it’s important to recognize achievements of the best team and watch them fight to the finish, we think it’s also important to give special appreciation to the hottest of the hot. But fear not; this will not be my own personal list of who I think is the hottest, nor will it be a combination of who the Ladies… think deserves the Larry O’Brien for being sexy. We want YOU, dear readers, to tell us who you think should be crowned the hottest man in the NBA!
