It was Adam Mair and Todd Simpson that did that, both of whom can be handled by Cowan, Avery, etc. It was Andy Sutton, who took out Allison. A big guy but not a heavyweight.
Of the top heavyweights most are what I refer to as "gentlemen". There is a code amongst them that even though they are fighting they know when to quit and dont fight other fighters who are non heavyweights. I am not sure, but knowing Atlanta when Cowan fought Cairns it wasnt because there was another big out there, it was because he wanted to.
Ill take 4 Middleweights (Cowan, Avery, Gleason, TK, Quintal) over 1 Heavyweight and some other non fighters anyday. The Kings are now a team that is not only talented, but very very tough.
I liked the way you looked at this. Things are looking in a good direction for the Kings in this regard.
