Anyway, I'd put Probert, Kocur, Nilan, Gillies, Robinson ahead of him at least, plus a few more. Yes that's right on the last two. They didn't fight a whole lot but they didn't need to, there was a reason few tested them. Like someone else mentioned you could add Lindros into the pile. We know he wouldn't back down from Laraque and Lindros had those rapid and very HARD right hand punches that he was relentless with. Also was taller than Laraque.
This is the same Chara who seems to lose all balance when it comes to fighting these days, right?
