Who fights more often?

These days... it seems like just about everyone is willing to drop the gloves...

From big names like Sidney Crosby, to the little guys like Mike Comrie or Daniel Briere.


Who does it more though? The titans of Georges Laraque and Colton Orr? or your average players like Steve Staios or Clayton Stoner



would also like to show off the battle of the Stones... I've actually been anticipating this fight for a while now

The big time scrappers fight more. Guys like Orr, Godard, etc. fight more than guys like Steve Staois and Sheldon Souray.

Normally that's the case but lately it seems the opposite. Look at the fights from the last three nights: Neal vs. Rupp, Carkner vs. Adams, Stone vs. Stoner, Souray vs. Nolan, Blunden vs. Sutherby, McLaren vs. Bickell, Chipchura vs. Hendricks, Weber vs. Kesler, Campbell vs. Laperriere, McCabe vs. Richards, Duco vs. Laperriere, Seidenberg vs. Lapperriere, Durno vs. Stoner, Crombeen vs. Stortini, Winchester vs. Jacques, Sydor vs. Moreau, Boll vs. Hanzal & Methot vs. Bissonnette. Now what percentage of those guys are heavyweight fighters or at least have one of their primary roles as fighting? Not a whole lot. Neal vs. Rupp and Crombeen vs. Stortini would be the only fights that are between two heavyweights. The only other guys that I would consider real often fighters would be Boll, Bissonnette, Lapperrierre and McLaren, but look at the guys they were fighting. Marc Methot, Martin Hanzal, Gregory Campbell, etc. It is a very small sample size and if you go back another couple nights you get another couple heavyweight battles in Belak vs. McGrattan and Barch vs. May. But it does seem to me the percentage of fights that are heavyweight tilts is down quite a bit this year.

Well according to hockeyfights.com the top 10 people with the most fighting majors are:

Zenon Konopka 16
Matt Carkner 14
Paul Bissonnette 13
Jared Boll 13
George Parros 12
Brandon Prust 12
Krys Barch 11
Ian Laperriere 11
Zack Stortini 11
Shawn Thornton 11

I would say that all of those guys are the big time fighters.
