The problem with Georges was that he wouldn't engage with someone that wasn't very willing to go and as such he was never a very effective enforcer.
Doubt it, Probert and Kocur played in the era of hockey that was hardest on enforcers. Every team had them and there wasnt as many rules policing it so you always had to step up. Kocur would put a couple on Laraques chin and Laraque would be in la la land. Its hard to compare eras, Gordie Howe obviously wouldnt be able to take Laraque but hockey was different then and Gordie dominated fights in a similar way.
However, guys like Probert, Kocur, Dave Brown can be easily compared to him and have much more impressive resumes in my opinion. They also didnt have the pansy attitude Laraque had. Those guys were crazy and loved to fight. An old washed up Chicago Probert hung in there with Laraque in his Edmonton days when Larague was absolutely killing everyone
The few times Probie lost or even had a close figt he would come back and absolutely wallop the guy
Then you had Kocur doing this to people
