If you could have any Flyers enforcer...
Just a question. If you could have any Flyers enforcer (past or present) on your squad, who would it be? I'd have to go with Dave Brown. Hands down toughest fighter in the league at the time. Nobody would mess with anybody on the team with Dave in the lineup.

The Hammer. He could score goals too!!

P.J Stock...

Behn Wilson.....we can always use another big, tough D-man to clear the mess in front of Bryz.....one of the toughest EVER to drop the gloves :eek:

Mr. Dave Brown a close second :nod:

Its a tossup between Craig Berube and Dave Brown.

My two favorite enforcers.

Considering I only really started following the Flyers closely in 2000, I'd have to say Brashear. He had some good ones here in Philly.

RJ8812 03-14-2012 02:43 PM


he actually had some skill as well

I also think Brash would fit well.. He was decent skater too with nice wrist shot. he just had issues with laterral movement.

DrHamburg 03-14-2012 02:54 PM

would it be cheating to say Eric Lindros or Primeau? :)

The Cheat 03-14-2012 02:57 PM

Cote, so I can see his wife more often

I think we could use a bruiser on defense like douglas murray. i'd take him. As far as all time, you gotta go with probert. he was the greatest, most intimidating psycho to ever play in the game. He had the "farm boy" strength they talk about that a lot of fighters had from the early 90's which was in my mind the greatest era in the NHL.

EvilAsh 03-14-2012 03:14 PM

If were talking D-men, how bout Jason Smith. Not an enforcer but he was pretty intimidating and would drop the gloves when needed.

Hockeypete49 03-14-2012 03:21 PM

I will always love the Hammer and Dave Brown was very good and the Big E was a tuff SOB and Paul Holmgren was always there for his teammates. But Behn Wilson was a killer. Not only did he have talent, he had a mean streak a mile long. His rookie year he went around the league and fought everyone. When he fought, he wanted to hurt the player he was fighting. To this day I still feel sorry for Chicago's Keith Magnuson(sp). In the minors was my pal Frank the Animal!:yo:

MiamiScreamingEagles 03-14-2012 03:43 PM

Are we playing this game with today's rules? Some guys would be eliminated from the conversation based on that.

Toughest fighter of all-time was Dave Brown followed by Behn Wilson.

Wilson would be the choice for a d-man.

Rick Tocchet is an option for a forward. Otherwise, it would be Holmgren. He would be among the top candidates for the Conn Smythe in 1980 if that ended differently.

Aside from the obvious guys from the days of the Broad Street Bullies I'd go with Brashear, Sandy McCarthy, or Craig Berube.

SolidSnakeUS 03-14-2012 04:10 PM

The Hammer. Bar none.

Flyerfan4life 03-14-2012 04:12 PM

i cant beleive im first..

but im going with HEXTALL..

no question in my mind..

and he can play goalie quite well..i hear..

MountainHawk 03-14-2012 04:21 PM

None. Enforcers are a waste of a roster space.

mirimon 03-14-2012 04:41 PM

Of those that's been around since I began following the Flyers... I think I'd go with Brashear. I'd rather do without one at all however.

SeanVT395 03-14-2012 04:49 PM

Paul Holmgren :sarcasm:

Appleyard 03-14-2012 04:52 PM

We have 3 of the top 5 fight % winners ever: 4th all time: Dave Brown, 2nd all time: Behn Wilson, 1st ?

I'd take the guy with the best fight win % in Flyers history.

The guy who also has the highest fight win % in NHL history in guys with over 50 fights...

Guess who?

Eric Lindros... Crazy eh? Supose being a mean SOB, 6'5 and 240 helps!

Think his fightcard stood at 52 fights.

39-1-12 or something like that!

(Obviously not an enforcer... but for those points as well as being a great fighter, just have him and roll without one! Ok, maybe another guy for when someone cheapshots him!)

He lost maybe 1 fight his whole career (Marty McSorley!) Fought some big, tough guys as well, Beukeboom, Chris Simon, Joe Reekie, Quintal, Ulanov, Sweeney, Kyle McLaren, Mike Wilson, Hulse, Hatcher,Todd Simpson, Doig, Thornton, O'Donnell, Chynoweth.

MojoJojo 03-14-2012 05:09 PM

Hextall :D

Claude Reigns 03-14-2012 06:04 PM

Wilson. He was a beast.

But I was always a fan of Boxcar Hospodar as well.
