Those guys are the exception not the rule though. The best of the best are big with a few smaller guys who get respect for taking on the big guys with that kind of size.

Disagree on Bollig. Hes developing into a legit heavyweight and is getting mroe time with the hawks. Bolls not a scary heavyweight but can go with pretty much anyone in the NHL and he doesnt even have the size Mckee has. Bickel is a solid fighter but Mckee has 30lbs on him and on Boll hes got almost 20 lbs.

He has that size advantage on those guys a year after being drafted compared to what they are now, size wise Mckee would be one of the biggest fighters in the NHL right now. He would go toe to toe with almost anyone in junior, and be right in the top of the league as far as fighters go
