FRED SMOOT COULD KICK SOME *** IN THE NHL

Cornerback Fred Smoot is a scouting combine legend, due not to any specific Festivus-style feats of strength but because of a lack of them.

Specifically, Smoot struggled at best in 2001 to put up a couple of reps in the 225-pound bench press.

But in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king. And in the NHL Smoot would be an enforcer.

A reader sent us a link to some information from the pro hockey's scouting combine, and though the guys on skates are gritty and wiry and tough, they're not strong. One guy pushed out only three reps (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?fid=7287&hubname=) in the 150-pound bench press. Three reps! And it was regarded as "impressive" that another guy got 12.

So if this football thing doesn't work out, maybe Smoot can be a cement-head in the NHL. We don't know, however, whether he has any stickhandling skills.

Smoot would still get his *** kicked in the NHL.
