Underrated/Overated and best fighter in the NHL

so i will start my list might be debatable or wrong feel free to make your own opinion in a peaceful matter.

underrated: ryan reaves i think he can take almost anybody in the nhl he is big and powerful

overated: shawn thorton in alot of peoples opinions he is top 3 in the league and i just dont see him in that class he is a tough cat though

best fighter: john scott without a dought he wouldnt be as good if he wasnt a monster of a man but every fight i see with him he dominates Sabres got a gamer in that department but in the playing department................not so much ... plz post ur 3 players

Reasoning Scott and Chara are overrated; Scott cant dominate 5'11" Cam Janssen who hung in real well with him. He, Chara and Gill all suck at fighting. Chara vs Laraque? He just takes him down when he realizes he's fighting someone who can compete

He's a homer, so probably not

Overrated: Big Mac
He knocked out Ivanans who kept his chin wide open for a shot, got fed like 5 shots to the jaw before he went down. Knocked down a 37 year old Brashear 10 years past his prime. Thats his major NHL highlights in a nutshell. Got tooled by Godard. I still like him though, not #1 in my book though.

Underrated: Bam Bam
As a hockey player and a fighter. Most of the geeks on the main board think he is useless aside from fighting and cant skate. He is a decent skater going straight and is one of the best hitters (an underrated skill on these boards) in the game. Beast on the forecheck. He is very smart when it comes to fighting, doesnt go t2t with guys bigger then him but will with guys his size. Never seen the guy get K.O. and has the best endurance of any fighter past or present.

If I was GM, he would be in my top 2 prefered choices for an enforcer.

Best: Mcgrattan
Always goes t2t and never see him get handed to. (Boogaard k.o. the exception) Wasnt voted the toughest player by NHL players for nothing.

Mike Brown is another good middleweight fighter who doesn't get enough attention.

Adam McQuaid is a pretty underrated fighter

I dont think a whole lot of guys wanna tussle with him thats why he doesnt get a lot of attention. When Torres hit Ference in the head, he never really got a chice on whether he wanted to fight McQuaid or not haha



probably my favorite fight of last year

Adam McQuaid hasn't fought a legit heavyweight yet, I know he's only 200 pounds but the guy is 6 foot 5. His fight card isn't really impressive.

McQuaid is scary if its a regular fight.. nevermind if its a cheap shot or borderline hit like torres.

Under: McQuaid
Over: Bieska, Thornton (he'll go with anyone but they're usually tie ups or not many punches thrown)
