Video: Jason Allison Rips Darroll Powe's Helmet In Half
Behold, mere mortals, the awesome, superhuman strength that is 34-year-old Jason Allison as he grabs the helmet of Flyers forward Darroll Powe and proceeds to tear it in half as if it were a piece of construction paper.
Video after the jump.
I don't know if this says more about Allison's strength (or desire to inflict bodily harm on Powe) or the shoddy construction of the piece of plastic designed to protect Darroll Powe's brain. Either way, Powe should consider himself lucky that it was only guarding him from the brute force of Jason Allison's steel trap-like grip and not a 95 MPH slap shot.
Allison, by the way, is attempting to return to the NHL for the first time since 2005-06 when he scored 17 goals in 66 games for the Maple Leafs.
UPDATE: And we have our answer. Simply a loose screw on Powe's helmet.
