I think I was the only one who realized you listed off just the "darker" players haha. When I saw Grier it caught my eye...

Carkner is making a name for himself tho, but he needs to prove a bit more before i put him up there just yet.
Fair enough

Chara is big, but not a good fighter.

He's not a top-10 fighter for one thing. And I'm not going to put a guy on my list when he has no fights this year and only 10 since the lockout.

He is a good fighter, but too valuable to fight much. Fought Brashear and Laraque without losing.

My top 6 list (random order), as I couldn't leave one of them out:

Mcgrattan
Orr
Boogaard
Brashear
Laraque
Godard

Boogaard has been a middling fighter ever since his back issues. He isn't what he once was.

John Scott is Minnesota's best heavy. But like Boogaard, neither can play.

bah, all depends on what criteria you use. I dunno...if you throw every fighter in the league (regardless of weight class) in a pool and project their fight win percentage vs. every other fighter...Well, you'd just be guessing.

Guys like Cam and Ripper might not be in the top 5 if there was some sort of bizaar fight-off but they are certainly top 5 in most fun to watch.

I like:

Boogaard
Godard
Rypien
McGratton
Orr

It's not fair, but it's life. Rypien is a great fighter, and has a warrior heart, but he can't match up to the top heavyweights like Boogey, Orr, Carkner, Godard, Laraque etc. It's certainly not for a lack of effort. He's a lot better than a lot of guys who are much bigger than him. Unfortunately there are guys who are 6'5 who are good fighters for their size too.
Are we talking about best fighter, or best heavyweight fighter? You seem oddly hung up on the latter.

I always think of the best fighters in terms of p4p. Rypien is the best guy at fighting in the NHL. Just because he physically does not match up with the John Scott's of the nhl does not negate that.

I dont see a lot of eastern conference teams so I wont judge include many

Godard
McGrattan (he's kinda crazy)
Scott
Rypien (solid but he lost to prust who has gotten his face broken in a lot during his rookie year)
Janssen

I actually think Tim Gleason is one of the more underated fighters in the league. Holds his own everytime I see him go at it
