craig coxe, an undistinguished heavyweight who fought all of his era's big boys, told us during his hockey camp twenty years ago that the guy he and everyone else feared the most was kocur, not probert. probert was mean and could rag doll you, he said, but kocur could put you in the hospital with a single punch if you let up your guard for just one second. the difference between being embarrassed and/or beat up and having your career flat out ended.

but of course, if you're a goon playing detroit in the late 80s, you had to contend with both. yikes.
