Toughest Little Guy (5'9" or under)
 
Garry Howatt of the Islanders gets my vote.

Aurel Joliat 5' 7" 136 lb 5th in PIM (and second in scoring) in NHL 1927-28.

Habsfan 32 12-05-2004 10:10 PM

Francis Bouillion and his 5'9'' 200 pound frame is one very tough guy probably tougher then Keith Tkachuk who's like 6'3''and way bigger. Bouillion is very strong too and tough as nail.

BuppY 12-05-2004 10:18 PM

Theo Fleury!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lowetide 12-05-2004 10:20 PM

I'll go Bobby Schmautz. Completely filthy hockey player.

I'll make this a Hat-trick. THEO FLEURY.

The toughest little SOB to play under 5'9''. You'd have to see his Calgary Flames days to i guess realize that. His last season as a Ranger he played 82 games and had 216 penalty minutes...dude's a monster for a lil guy.

Inactive 12-05-2004 11:22 PM

Kevin Kaminski with out a doubt

Frightened Inmate #2 12-05-2004 11:23 PM

Why am I the first person to put Ted Lindsay down here?

Toonces 12-05-2004 11:33 PM

Steve Sullivan.

TSN lists him at 5'9, 155, but that's a stretch. He may be 155 pounds, but he is no bigger than 5'6.

Gotta admire guys who can make it to the NHL with such small frames.

Terrible choice. :D

Rex88 12-05-2004 11:44 PM

I think Pat Verbeek has to be included here.
Currently, gotta go with J. Tootoo at 5'8.

jeffbrown 12-05-2004 11:58 PM

No one's put Scott Walker!?!

He's listed as 5'10, but there's no way he's that tall. Early in his career he was listed as 5'8, but somehow he's grown a few inches in his 20's!!!!

fredez 12-06-2004 12:01 AM

From the past : Stan Jonathan, Ted Lindsay, Maurice Richard, Theoren Fleury

Current players : Jordin Tootoo, Tie Domi, Francis Bouillon, Sean Avery

Lard_Lad 12-06-2004 12:07 AM

Marcel Bonin. 5'9, 174 pounds, and spent his offseasons wrestling bears in a touring circus.

That's a good list. I agree. I'm sad Fleury is "From the Past."

Really sad :(

Big Phil 12-06-2004 03:11 AM

Yeah I miss Fleury a lot too, great little sparkplug, probably wont get into the HOF now.

I'd have to say that other tough guys under 5'9" would be Yvan Cournoyer. He's remembered most for his blinding speed, but another thing is that he got knocked down by the biggest guys and just bounced up like he was a jack in the box. He was strong, strong in the waist and legs.

monster_bertuzzi 12-07-2004 01:58 AM

Domi

Listed at 5'10 but is lucky to be 5'9''...

Boilers* 12-07-2004 02:38 AM

It's only because of Fleury that the rest of them are even playing IMHO.

what the hell do you mean, "Actual players" The four you list from the past are 10 times the player you list as actual players. You meant to say current, didn't you?

Sampe 12-07-2004 04:21 PM

Finland's legendary Simo Häyhä was the toughest little (5'3 at best) sniper in history! ;)
