Colton Orr. I love his right hand bombs and even when he wins or loses, always walking away with that evil grin. I do miss him in New York. Aside from Orr, I would probably say Asham is my 2nd favorite fighter in today's NHL (granted he's not a heavyweight).

All-time I would have to go with Probert. Just so entertaining.

I like Rypien, he's a very entertaining fighter, but he's not the next PJ Stock. Stock fought heavyweight enforcers, Rypien doesn't. Big difference.

Always been a big Orr fan, even before he signed with the Leafs.

Rypien.
The guy does not just hang on, he throws hard and fast with both hands...only 170 lbs, fights guys MUCH bigger than him and I have not seen him lose one, yet.
Quickest hands in the league (fighting-wise at least) right now.

Tony Twist Hell fights in general are why I started watching hockey at a young age.

Career cut short but Link Gaetz had something wrong in his head.

Current: Jeremy Yablonski. Can fight with either hand. Eats punches to get a good shot in. 6 time Canadian Golden Gloves Champ. 2-0 in MMA fights. Has fought his cousin (Jon Mirasty) several times in epic fights.

I like Brandon Prust because he agitator/fighter/scorer. I've seen him fight guys 6in taller than him (he's only 5 11'') and he does a great job of getting at the other players and he can score too.
Next in line: Rypien, he can take on anyone and even the heavy weights are scared of him.

I don't think Rypien's been challenged by a top heavyweight yet. His scraps are usually spur of the moment; that said, he usually does give up a significant size and weight disadvantage, which is where the Stock comparison comes from.

I would be interested to see how Rypien faired against some of the tougher names out there.

My favorite is Randy McKay by far. He had one hell of a fight card and could play the game as well. I remember him pounding Dave Brown like a tent stake, that is probably my favorite fight ever.

And someone mentioned Jay Miller earlier, he is probably one of the most under rated fighters of all time. Guy was tough as nails.

Brad May - Guy never turns anyone down. Can throw with both hands, super entertaining.

Rick Rypien - Basically same thing, but smaller in stature.

Colton Orr - Under-appreciated heavyweight in my opinion.

The thing about Miller was that he would fight all night if they let him...he simply would not quit. He'd take a few early in the fight to set you up. Fun to watch.

Aaron Asham, he's great at countering and can make guys look silly. See here. Super Technical



Honorable Mention is Cam Jannsen. Looks funny when he fights but he uses his energy well and can throw a bomb with nice timing. Both of these guys I like because they seldom lose, they usually tie or win every bout.

I love the calmness of Aaron Asham as he is squaring off. I wouldn't want to fight a guy that looks like he just doesn't give a ****.

Clark Gillies

his fight against Dave Schultz and how he treated Hopspodar's jaw made me a fan for life.

not necessarily. His NHL career? Yes. His hockey career? No.

He played until 2005, primarily in the QPSHL/LNAH.

One of my favorite stories about him:
Quote:
He last appeared playing with the Thetford Mines Prolab of the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH) in 2004–05. On March 13, 2005, in a game against the Verdun Dragons, Gaetz did not take a shift during the first or second period. During the second intermission, Gaetz changed out of his jersey and skates and went out to the concession stand to buy a hamburger and "promptly ate it". Thetford Mines Prolab considered this disrespectful to the players, and suspended Gaetz for the remainder of the season.
