I listed Bertuzzi as fulfilling the criteria, and he has been in several fights. Heck, he was suspended for 10 games for jumping off the bench to fight Scott Parker in the past.
The thing with Bertuzzi is he's always prepared to fight, and gets in loads of individual battles, but few players want to face him. Example: Avery agitating him, then ducking for cover after Bertuzzi dropped the gloves. Or Jason Smith/Staios have gotten under his skin numerous times but they shy away from dropping the gloves with him (usually. I remember one or two fights Bertuzzi had with Staios).
Anyway, to put it simply: he does get in fights, and would be a more frequent fighter if opponents were as willing combatents as he is.
