Your Team's All Time Tough Guy Lineup
Say your team was about to have an all out brawl. What would be your all-time fighting lineup? Only rules: Player must have played 3 seasons with your team.
Primeau - Lindros - Tocchet (line ensures we actually win the game :laugh:)
Berube - Brown - Schultz
Holmgren - Brashear - Kordic
Kelly - Bridgman - Fedoruk
Hatcher - Pronger (again, ensures a victory)
Wilson - Dupont
Van Impe - McCrimmon
Can anybody beat these goons (and very tough skill players)?
I personally think The Chief was the best pound for pound fighter of all time. He may be the only guy to beat Probert 3 times, and imagine if he were 6'3" 230 instead of 6'1" 205. I doubt he'd ever have lost. A ton of other guys who up there who were heavyweight champs and extremely feared. Can anybody top this? Boston? St. Louis?
Glen Cochrane has to make the team on D..had some nice seasons in the early 80s..paired up with Mark Howe i think...im sure he had over 300 PiMs one year at least..
Don Cherry behind the bench.
Grimson-Kocur-Probert (broken orbital bones for everyone on your team)
Can't think of any other tough guy goalies
Ryane Clowe-Dody Wood-Owen Nolan
Scott Thornton-Scott Nichol-Andrei Nazarov Jeff Odgers-Mike Ricci-Ronnie Stern
Jody Shelley-Mark Smith-Scott Parker
Bryan Marchment-Douglas Murray
Link Gaetz-Jim Kyte
Rob Davison-Doug Zmolek
no goalies worth ****.
Sabres would just need to send 5 guys over the boards ...
I cut the copied the post above me and made changes
Ryane Clowe-Joe Thornton-Owen Nolan
Scott Thornton-Mike Ricci-Todd Harvey
Jeff Odgers-Dody Wood-Tim Hunter
Ronnie Stern-Mark Smith-Scott Parker
Bryan Marchment-Douglas Murray
Kyle Mclaren-Rob Blake
Marty Mcsorely-Link Gaetz
Thornton is underated in the toughness department, pretty good fighter, destroyed Getzlaf, yeh he lost to Lindros, but it's freakin Eric Lindros.
idk much about Link Gaetz but 326 pim in 48 games??Tim Hunter had 135 in 46 which is impressive,but that has to be some sort of record
edit: ohh there was another one further up that was pretty close. oh well
going by fighters only
Brashear Coxe Williams
Odjick Kurtenbach Neely
Fraser Langdon Rypien
Atoski Hordichuk Delorme
Van Allen Smith Neil
Ruutu Fisher Roy
Mcgrattan Foligno Donovan
Bass Kelly Ray
Some haven't played 3 seasons, but have been with the system for 3 years plus. Defense is pretty scary. Forwards is ok, Fisher is our best player who could throw down.
Guys who didn't make the 3 year minimum cutoff, but would have made the team otherwise:
Konopka (2 seasons, 3rd all-time in TB fights)
I also swapped out Cullimore-Kubina, with Bergevin-Lipuma, as although the former had more fights, they were much less frequent than the shorter stinted latter pairing.
P Russell-B McGill
Peluso, Marchment, Fleming
So many great candidates for the defense. Which is depressing, since the Hawks have so few today. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
John Ferguson - Newsy Lalonde - Maurice Richard
Shayne Corson - Doug Risebrough - Chris Nilan
Scott Thornton - Ryan White - Turner Stevenson
Donald Brashear - Todd Ewen - John Kordic
Emile Bouchard - Larry Robinson
Sprague Cleghorn - Lyle Odelein
Lou Fontinato - Stephane Quintal
This 3 year criteria really handicaps the Flames. Now I can't include Chris Simon, Stu Grimson, Craig Berube, Jimmy Kyte, Rocky Thompson, The Polish Hammer Oliwa, etc.
But we still have Tim Hunter, Sandy McCarthy for heavy's and Ronnie Stern, Jim Peplinski, Gary Roberts, Iginla for guys that can score and fight. We would have to have Neil Sheehy on Defence, that fumanchu he used to wear was pretty imposing!
Gary Roberts - Rick Vaive - Wednel Clark
Shayne Corson - Tiger Williams - Darcy Tucker
Kris King - Owen Nolan - Tie Domi
Colton Orr - John Kordic - Craig Berube
Dion Phaneuf - Tim Horton
Todd Gill - Rob Ramage
Wade Belak - Bob McGill
Ed Belfour - Felix Potvin
Pat Quinn as coach
This line up is just tough guys, there are no centers right left wing etc... just forwards dmen and goalies
This works a bit better, IMHO
Odjick Kurtenbach Williams
Fraser Rypien Walker
Momesso Scatchard Brashear
Hunter Coxe Delorme
I especially like the Fraser Rypien Walker line. One of the strongest middleweight combos any team could come up with. They could probably take the Bruins hypothetical MW line of Stock-Linseman-Jonathan.
How about Jimmy Kyte? And Vernon in the net? He has over 250 PIMs. Stern only played 2 seasons with the Sharks so maybe slip Dody Wood in there.
The rest of the list is good though.
Semenko - Messier - Anderson
Laraque - Weight - McClelland
MacIntyre - Arnott - Tikkanen
Buchberger - MacTavish - Hordichuk/Stortini/Eager
Lowe - S. Smith
J. Smith - Beukeboom
McSorley - Debrusk
Quinn behind the bench
Probably missing a lot but yeah
and in net.....Battlin Billy Smith.
