Well if we can find footage of Probert losing the odd fight we can find footage of Chara doing so as well. He loses to Peter Worrell. Big deal. Worrell was 6'6". Or if he is not fully beating Laraque or Brashear then I don't consider that bad either. If you are going to have a draw with someone it'd better be guys like this. The tipping point for me that made me think of Chara as a dominant fighter was the McCabe rag doll incident. That's just pure strength and throwing your opponent around like a toy. Hal Gill is 6'7" and I can't tell you the amount of times he was on the Leafs or any other team that he'd drop the gloves and get pummelled by a guy 8 inches shorter than him. It was utterly embarassing to watch.
