I honestly think Chara is the strongest NHL player ever. Nobody can match is strength, but Lucic, due to his boxing background, has very fast hands, and is also very strong. If he could keep Chara from grabbing him, he'd stand a decent chance against him. Really depends if Lucic could hit Chara on the chin before Chara huggy beared him.
most fighters have trouble even getting close to Chara, he has the strength to grab on and ragdoll with one arm and keep big guys far away from him with his reach
If Chara didnt have reach and insane strength he would be another Hal Gill. The guy has horrible fighting skills overall. Anytime he fights a player who can beat him he goes for the take down right away. As for the Koci fight, Koci was one of the worst fighters to ever enter the league.
I agree with the bold. Similarly, if Laraque didn't have good fighting skills, he'd be a bad fighter.
