Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen had a memorable goal celebration after scoring against the Sharks, to help the Sabres to their 10th straight win.  It was a bit beyond the norm, and sports humorist Jeff Wozer has uncovered the top reactions to Risto’s moves.

• “He dances like Don Cherry dresses.”

• “In the words of Rick Jeanneret, ‘You asked for it. you got it: His dance moves are bad. Scaaary bad.’”

• “I bet Rob Ray jumps the bench and coldcocks him.”

• “He’s to dancing as Pharoah’s is to family entertainment. “

• “He looks like John Murphy dancing to Usher.”

• “What Risto calls dancing the United Nations Security Council calls Crimes Against Humanity.”

• “He’s to dancing as the Galleria’s Food Court is to fine dining.”

• “If given the choice between watching Risto dance or looking at a Women of the Supreme Court Bathing Suit calendar I’d choose the latter.”

• “C’mon ref give him 10 minutes for Too Many Lame Dance Moves On the Ice.”

• “He dances like Justin Timberlake on an ether binge.”
