Didn't mean to say that Orr was a better fighter than Kocur. In Kocur's time there was a lot more fighting though. Orr compares to Kocur in the respect that he's the guy that punches the hardest in this particular time and he can really hurt people. Both Kocur and Probert were NHL qualtiy players--Probert was a very good player. Grimson not so much. Domi was a good player. There were fighters that were good then and some who were not. Brashear was a good player for a while. Mick Vukota-no. A Kocur--a Probert were scary as fighters and could handle most anyone but they weren't goons IMO because they could play. A Vukota, John Kordic, Troy Crowder, Scott Parker etc. etc. were examples of goons.

Anyway how I entered this was on whether Arron Asham is a serious deterrent to the real heavyweights like Orr, McIntrye, Parros, Scott--he's not.
