When I think Checking Line players, I think defensive specialists. Ala, Ricci, Cooke, Draper, Maltby and some others.

I really liked San Jose's checking line of Ricci, Thornton, Sundstrom when it was together. All 3 are very good defensively.

Stephan Yelle is very underrated as a checking line player.
Scatchard has always been one of my favorites. He reminds me a lot of Joel Otto.
Aaron Asham.
Curtis Brown.
Ian Laperriere. Very underrated defensively and gritty as hell.
