Georges would probably be in my top 20 somewhere, but I never got the impression he regularly dominated guys despite winning on points in most of his fights. Still, as with anything else hockey related, it's hard to compare across eras.
Probert, Kocur, Brown, B. Wilson, Twist, Gillies, McKenzie and McSorley would all be in my HW top 10. Tocchet and W. Clark might also make it, as they could fight and beat HW's.
Another who's not mentioned here... kind of a Gillies type as he didn't fight a lot, was Barry Beck. He scared people.
And another who deserves some mention in the John Ferguson category was Orland Kurtenbach, who also carried quite a rep back in the day.
