But there are plenty of guys tougher than Orr that just can't handle a shift in the NHL. Orr can get by. Barely imo
John Scott can't play but is tough, MacIntyre is tough but has trouble playing in the AHL. Thornton is my favourite enforcer though I hate that he plays for the Bruins.
Thornton is without question the best fighter/player however as a enforcer Orr is the best since Brasheer. Notice how I say enforcer (not necessarily fighter) I think Big Mac along with Boogard and Laraque were better fighters then Orr. The difference is a enforcer like Orr will do what he did yesterday. He will stand up for his teammates any time and do whatever it takes. The others I've mentioned don't do this as well as Orr. Orr is no question a dying breed but on the right team and under the right hc/management there is still room left for true enforcers.
