Chris Nilan, Mike Brault, Donald Brashear, Brad May, Rob Ray, Tony Twist, Darren McCarty....I guess the question is....what's the criteria for the Goon HOF?
Just fighters who were good and fought a lot or fighters that could play as well?
Smythe was happy with the way I played. I led the league in
penalties for eight years in a row, I think, but he said when I
take penalties the team wins. He told me always to try to take
someone with you. Soon, I was taking on the league. Everyone wanted
to get at me. If a young guy wanted his name in the paper...fight
Red Horner. In Chicago, at the old Coliseum, there was an organ
loft at one end of the seating, and when I stayed on late during
the warmup the organist would play, "Who's afraid of the big bad
wolf?" I loved it. That was a lot of fun.
-Red Horner who managed to get 1254 PIM's in 490 games during the 30s.
