I'd include Horton as well just because he and Lucic feed off each other's emotions sometimes and it seems anytime there is a big scrum Horton comes away the only one paired up with someone and he doesn't just hug. He's far from a 'good' fighter but throws out of anger, how it should be in my mind. I doubt he stops dropping the gloves because of the concussions, but who knows.

So with rosters getting closer to what they will be, some additions may still occur but not huge changes for the most part. Who does everyone see as the softest teams going into the season?

I'm looking at the stars, jets, Columbus and Carolina. Nystrom the only semi tough guy in your lineup is pretty weak. And you know its bad when a wings fan calls out the toughness of your team lol.

For the Flames you can add Sarich, he doesn't fight often but he can hang with the big guys.

You can probably add Cowen for Ottawa 3 fights (one preseason) last year as a rookie. Going to be looked to for toughness this year. Fought 2 heavies in Deveaux and Phaneuf.

I wouldn't put Columbus in the same category as Carolina and Winnipeg. They re-signed Jared Boll, Derek Dorsett, and Derek MacKenzie. They won't be the toughest team out there, but they're not exactly soft.

Carolina looks awfully soft. Winnipeg lost Tanner Glass to Pittsburgh and hasn't really replaced him. Dallas looks pretty soft. Morrow is still pretty gritty. Fistric is an RFA. Makes me wonder if they'll pluck someone out of free agency before the season starts.

Yeah I agree on Columbus. Boll and Dorsett are solid active fighters, but both seem to lose their fair share (especially Dorsett).

I think they stars are still the winner here though

Not trying to say the Lightning are the toughest team out there or anything, but I would add those two guys as well (especially "Muhammad" Aulie).

Agreed. Doubt he quits. Had a great tilt with Rinaldo last year.

Yeah, Boll takes on guys a lot bigger than him, so its understandable why he doesnt dominate every fight.

Keep in mind that there are still some guys out there that haven't signed yet:

Brad Winchester
Jim Vandermeer
Jay Rosehill
Byron Bitz
Matt Bradley
Guillaume Desbiens
Mike Commodore

Just off the top of my head.

Agreed with both players. I'd say the Bruin and Horton fan is even underrated Horton's ability to fight. He's no Lucic, but he's no sissy either.

Fair enough, in what way does Wisniewski and Bass not qualify then?

Dorsett, Boll, Bass, Wisniewski. Hardly the softest team (even better considering it appears you're a wings fan) in the league, as a matter of fact one of a handful of teams with two 15 fight players to begin with.

Probably due to both being on the smaller side. Boll is our heavyweight, and he's 6-2 210. Dorsett is 5'10 and like 185 soaking wet.


Now if this was softest top 6, the CBJ would win by a landslide

I forgot about Wiz. Definitely a good fighter when he goes but does Bass actually play more than a handful of call up games a season?

I think a reason I consider CBJ so soft is because all their fighting is done by pretty much 2 players, one of which is Dorsett. Hes got heart but he isnt scaring anyone. I think Boll is a solid light heavyweight but he also loses his fair share as well.

I would wager the wings are a tougher team this year then the Jackets (if thats what you mean earlier in your post).

Smith, Tootoo, Ericcson are all definitely tougher than Dorsett. That doesnt count Bertuzzi when he decides to fight. Abdelkader and Dorsett are probably fairly even.

Smith, Ericcson and Tootoo would all also probably give Boll a good scrap. Tootoo has fought him twice to a draw pretty much.

Rinaldo is one of the last guys I'd ever want to fight, that was a good one but I felt bad for Horton, out of his element there once the original adrenaline/rage wore off....

Overall, love how tough the Bruins are as usual. Makes games interesting, especially blowouts either way. I love me some brawls, knuckle-breathing-dragging ______ (or whatever that phrase is!) that I am.


Jets might not be tough overall, but Stuart was always one of our tougher, more physical players when he was a Bruin. I doubt he's lost that element of his game, at least they have him. Stars do look pretty soft now. So much for these random fight-filled games versus them (especially since that little fool Ott is gone).

I wouldn't go that far. Detroit will be a little meaner with Smith up full time and Tootoo running around, but I wouldn't quite say we'd be able to outmatch Columbus physically.

Like you said about Dorsett, Abdelkader has heart, but he's not scaring anyone. He did well against Max Lapierre last year, but overall he is not a good fighter at this point. He is still young, though. Also, Abby isn't physical on a regular basis. If he plays on the wing, I'm hoping we'll see him throwing his weight around more often. Dorsett is far more physical. Ericsson shows flashes of a mean streak, but we've yet to see anything significant. Just lacks the killer instinct, I guess. He'll fight a couple times a year, otherwise he is not very physical.

Keep in mind that we're still looking for a bottom pairing defenseman. If we pull in Jim Vandermeer, then I think we could say we're near Columbus in terms of toughness.

I think he's point is fairly correct though. On paper the Jackets look like a tough team, but like 40 of the 55 fights (thats seems to be around what we average a season) are done by two players. Yes, Wiz(tbh, He might be the best fighter on the team) but he probably wont fight that often, due to him being on the first d-pair. Jack Johnson...i think he's more of a pseudo tough guy, along the lines of he'll throw, but only if its a guy his size(or Gabriel Landeskog). Tyutin is a punching bag the 2 times a year he does drop em. Basically we're a tough team, but only in the bottom six, and the Jackets tough guys aren't necessarily a deterrent to begin with(especially last year).

Last year no, but he had 6 fights in 19 games. However his resigning seems to be because Richards really likes him (see his fight against philly for reason why), so he'll probably be a 4th line regular with Boll and McKenzie

Meh, he is still willing drop the gloves (at least twice this year [vrs NYR and PITT] he's tried to fight) and I was basing it off the second credential in the OP about fighting heavyweights (he has fought Chara twice, for example).

I get leaving him off the list though, just thought I'd mention him.

Buffalo has a bonified heavy weight! I'm looking forward to some hard fought Bruins/Sabres games, a lot of tough customers in that one for sure.
