50:s Lou Fontinato

In the 50's, I remember Fontinato getting the best of Rocket Richard in a fight and Gordie Howe destroying Fontinato but Rocket and Gordie weren't known as goons per se. In the 60's, Fergie had no equals, he was feared by all players in the league.

22 posts before Joey Kocur's name comes up? Link Gaetz (another worthy heavyweight from this era) once said that the day after a fight with Joey Kocur felt like you were in a head on collision, every part of your body hurt. He would punch you anywhere.

Semenko was a better fighter than McSorley but he had a short career playing only 8 seasons with 1175 PIMs. I also liked the Grim Reaper in the 90's but went with Probert who could also play some hockey.

I wouldn't say he was the champ, mainly, because he didn't fight very much. He was a very good fighter, despite the outcome of his fight with Jonathan and one of my favourite Habs at the time, but, he didn't fight enough of the real big heavyweights to win the crown, imo.

I think you're right. Serge Savard has said a couple times that he would have beaten up Jonathan if he hadn't have stepped on a stick. Jonathan took advantage of it instead of fighting like a man.
