The Buffalo/Boston fight card has a lot of variance because Chara only fights a couple of times per season and it's usually a heat of the moment thing. Excluding Chara's unpredictability and assuming everyone else is healthy (Regehr too, for the same reasons), it look something like:

Scott - Thornton, edge Scott
Lucic - McCormick, edge Lucic
McQuaid - Foligno, push
Boychuk - Kaleta, edge Boychuk
Campbell - Ott, edge Ott

Boychuk probably has the biggest mismatch. Regehr evens that up, but we're excluding each team's shutdown defensemen.
you forgot about Horton

and anger factor changes a few of these guys like McQuaid, Horton, Lucic, and Chara... when Lucic isn't mad he almost seems lazy when it comes to fighting, he is not that exciting when it comes to the "choreographed" dances. I can't help but think an angry Bruin team is much more formidable than an angry Sabre team
