I was super young during his first tour, but I'm not even sure he was an enforcer. Think he was a defenseman who just fought a lot.


Anyways, seems to be the unanimous opinion in Pitt that the best enforcer to ever come through here was Godard. As others have said, a lot of the other guys were either crap fighters (Steve McKenna), didn't do the job properly (Francois Leroux, Georges Laraque) or were complete liabilities on the ice (Steve MacIntyre).

Godard was an awesome fighter, who could play enough that he didn't hurt you when he got a shift and understood/executed the job perfectly.
