Both Beliveau, in the fifties, and Mikita (a little small, but very scrappy prior to winning the Byng trophy's) in the sixties, each won the Art Ross and Hart the same year as being top 3 in the league in penalty minutes. Doug Harvey did the same the year he won one of his many Norris trophies.

Eddie Shore, Rocket Richard and Bobby Orr fought a lot, and well, also.

Larry Robinson and Bobby Hull, neither fought a lot but could certainly handle themselves when they did.

Howe of course wins this, at least for his day. (HM Lindros and Chara) Lou Fontinato was thought to be the toughest guy in the league until Howe put his broken face on the cover of Life Magazine. Not many challenged Gordie after that.
