Best Fighter/Enforcer in the league??
 
I would consider Rick Rypien the best pound for pound guy while he was still in the league, but since he passed away(RIP), who would you guys consider the best still around

Not a whole lot of small guys tearing people apart so far this season.. Neil and Asham come to mind... Domi is by far the best of all-time!

pigpen65 03-06-2013 09:43 PM

Tootoo. Not even close.

HankyZetts 03-06-2013 10:08 PM

Prust, Neil, Tootoo

Thanks for the insight!

Prust and Tootoo are same weight. Prust can go with almost anyone. Neil can literally go with anyone and do well.

Neil
Thornton
Engelland

Are you asking who is the best fighter or who is the best small fighter? This topic is somewhat confusing.

JimLaheyprobert 03-06-2013 11:10 PM

its tough to say best pound for pound, you have to split it up into classes

Middleweight - mike brown, jordin tootoo, brandon prust
Light heavyweight - chris neil,
Heavyweight - Colton Orr, george parros, brian magrattan, john scott, could even throw frazer mclaren up in the heavyweights now hes been impressive

JimLaheyprobert 03-06-2013 11:15 PM

and its real tough to put a label on "the best fighter in the league" due to the fact that you could label someone the best one night, then they lose to someone the next night. In my opinion i think its easier to name a top 5 in each class of fighters because realistically when a john scott fights an orr, orr may win one night but scott could easily win another night. Same goes for other fighters, when one great heavyweight fighter faces another great heavyweight fighter anyone can win.

Bi Coastal Bawse* 03-06-2013 11:16 PM

See that is what I was getting at.

Curtinho 03-06-2013 11:21 PM

Neil IMO. He'll fight anyone and he's never really been dominated. He always puts up a fight and has had his share of wins against the true heavyweights in the league...guys much bigger than he is.

They are the same weight and Prust has already beat Tootoo, imo. Keep loling. Prust has fought Lucic, Neil, Fraser and Finley already this year.

He has one many fights against guys bigger than him. You're out to lunch. Check his fight card and compare it to the guy you're nominating in Tootoo. Now how can you knock on Prust?

Polo* 03-07-2013 01:21 AM

alot of guys have won fights against bigger opponants..this year prust looks like garbage..he has gotten beaten up left and right. To be considered the best..you have to win almost all your fights..not lose what 4 out of the 6 hes had this season

If he only fought in his weight range, he would win most all of his fights. Wtv.

Some of the choices here are solid. Prust, Tootoo, Asham, Neil would all be worthy choices.

Ziggy Stardust 03-07-2013 02:16 AM

Wayne Simmonds for me. He's not very big, but the kid can throw.

Man Bear Pig 03-07-2013 03:09 AM

tacogeoff 03-07-2013 08:19 AM

yup but you couldnt wipe that **** eating grin off his face :laugh:

ECWHSWI 03-07-2013 08:38 AM

small guys ?

may not be the best but the toughest for sure : Francis Bouillon

(I dont think he could do it anymore though at 37).

at 5.8ft, he fought the like of May, Orr, Bodie (6.5ft), Simmonds (ouch!), Reich, Dorsett, (Jarko) Ruutu, Konopka, Ott among others.

While he didnt clearly win many, fact that he was willing to go with all of them despite being only 5.8 says a lot IMO.
