What about the "missing link," Link Gaetz. I also liked Bob Probert. Gino Odjick made crowds wild but wasn't the best at fighting. Link Gaetz only lasted a season so I would go with Probert.

By the way, I once made this topic on hockeyforumS. People mainly chose Probert.

I would say Pierre Bouchard...but Jonathan almost "KO" the guy.

I don't think fights should be part of hockey. But, it's another long debate. This year, in the NHL, fights are down by 50,8%. Wow!

If you like fights, real ones, you should go to a LNHA (senior hockey)game in the province of Quebec. Real fighters. :cool:

The Tiger was a great entertainer and a fair fighter.Had stones of steel and could play the game as well.Gay Bettman would ban him now as well as borderline sociopaths like Steve Durbano and Randy Holt,guys whom I thoroughly enjoyed.I have a Tiger Williams tape.Always stirrin' the post.

Kurt Walker defeated Stan Jonathon in my view,a good thing.

Feel Robinson,while a truly great d-man,was over-rated as a fighter.I have his Schultz fight on tape and don't call it the 'savage beating' that some maintain.He WAS a deterrent to people pushing the more skill oriented Habs around,tho.I was always hoping to see him tune up Jonathon.

Liked Al Secord but after his first couple years he became a wrestler.

Nystrom had a chin of granite but I have Glen Cochrane,underrated by some, beating him.Cochrane loses points in some peoples eyes due to his bad loss as a Black Hawk to Probert as well as a loss to Yvon Vautour.

Good list tho Hamilton,not takin' shots at it.:thumbsup:

I remember seeing Kurt Walker chasing Dave Schultz all over the ice one time....nobody on the Flyers wanted to take him on.

Robinson I think is under-rated as a fighter because he didn't do it often but when he did look out! I love the beating he handed Mike Milbury of the Bruins one time....that one will always stick out in my mind.

Wow.He beat up a girl.;) Just funnin'. Milbury was a joke tho.The look of fear on his face when confronted by Mel Bridgman was priceless.

I would suggest hockeyfights.com as you are obviously a fan of REAL hockey,not Bettmanized Disney on Ice figure skating Euro-hockey.

Nathan Perrott is my favourite. Glad he's back in the TO organisation.

Could he ever throw 'em. I heard he used to be a boxer, so that's why his fights always look the way they do.

Darren Langdon stands out as well. His fights are always long.
