I've seen him fight. Against the Leafs I think it was after a big fight.

I think the OP is more for players who will fight in a staged fight.

Could compile a list for secondary fighters.

Bollig might be a full timer with Chicago, but I dont know if theyll really need him if all those others are in the lineup. Seems like overkill for a team who has enough toughness and how bad at hockey he is.

Volpatti could be a guy who could find a home on the full time club possibly?

For the Pens I'd say Deryk Engelland and Tanner Glass will be our tandem of toughness.

Craig Adams has horrible balance and shouldn't fight at all IMO. As for Steve MacIntyre I presume he will spend 95% of the season in the AHL with maybe the occasional callup.

I don't know anything about Warren Peters so I can't give my $0.02 on him yet.

Mathers is an up and coming heavyweight. Will be playing in the AHL this year dude is a beast. Should be a top 5 heavy in the future.

Mathers wouldn't be able to handle Steve MacIntyre if they ever fought.

I think you can add Foligno, Wisniewski, and Bass for Columbus. Bass will probably play 25 games, and he had 6 in like 17 last year. Wiz can really throw, Arniel told him to stop though, hopefully Richards doesnt mind(i think he plays better when he's physical). And Foligno will probably have to throw more due to being on Dorsetts line haha

Steve MacIntyre is arguably the best super heavyweight fighter in hockey right now, Derek Mathers is going to be a good enforcer in the future with his size but I can't see him handling Steve MacIntyre. MacIntyre is a much more experienced fighter than Mathers, since MacIntyre has been fighting for over 10 years and Mathers has just came out of the ohl but fought a couple of times in the ahl. MacIntyre has significant size over Mathers he's listed at 6 foot 6 250 pounds and Mathers being listed at 6 foot 3 230 pounds.

Nah, he might become good, but that size advantage and how crazy MacIntyre is definitely gives him the advantage. I'd say if MacIntyre were good enough to play in the NHL, he'd be the uncontested heavy weight.

Just watched some video of Mathers and the kid is a beast, but he's not in Mac's area yet.

You could probably add Jared Cowen for the Sens. He's definitely capable of it. He didn't fight much as a rookie but that's because the Sens had lots of fighters last year and he was concentrated on other things. With Carks and Konopka gone I think he'll step up a lot more this season. He fought quite a bit in the WHL

You're missing noted tough guy David Krejci from the Bruins.

Put up Shane Doan, Raffi Torres and Martin Hanzal on that list.

Like I wrote in the opening post, to be on the list you must :
- fight at least 5 times per season or
- be able to fight heavyweights (Souray, Chara, Murray...)

All of them qualify for the latter category. Doan is known to jump into a fight to prove a point and Hanzal is rarely fought because, well, he is built like a mule. The reason he was on the Whitney-Vrbata line was to protect those two.

Torres is huge and can destroy people, both with illegal hits(unfortunately) and legal hits. I can agree that he is more doubtful though.

More like Hanzal sucks at fighting. 6 career NHL fights. He's only won against Jonthan Toews. He fought Setoguchi and lost. He also lost against Jared Boll and Mike Richards. He got a draw against Kaleta, and Neal. He's 1-3-2. He doesn't fight much because Phoenix needs him on the ice and he isn't very good at it. Nokelainen is more deserving to be on the list than Hanzal.

Yeah, Jets definitely don't have a legitimate knuckle in their lineup. Thorburn is a punching bag, Stuart is only a bit better.

Cody Sol is the only guy in the organization that may be able to fill the role of a tough guy that can play. He needs a tonne of work on his skating though.
