Past & Present NHL Punching Bags

Had a conversation about this earlier, so I figured I'd get HF's thoughts. Who are some players that should just keep their gloves on? Guys that display the heart to drop the gloves, but get pounded seemingly every time they fight.

Some guys that come to mind:

Past: Chris Dingman
Present: Tom Kostopoulos, Zack Stortini

Bring on your lists of past and present NHL punching bags.

Jim Cummins was a guy who was willing to drop the gloves and showed a lot of heart, but he really got beat up in a lot of high profile fights.

this thread should begin and end with stortini (present anyhow).

as an oiler fan he was embarrasing to watch. i give him credit for dropping the mitts alot, but no credit for hugging, seatbelting and hiding his face constantly.

dude was willing enough but hated being punched...not a good combination for an NHL fighter.

Rick Dipietro. I haven't seen anyone ever get humiliated the way he did.

Peters. He did a lot of fighting, but he was absolutely terrible at it.

This is ridiculous. In his prime, Peters was able to beat guys like McGrattan, Domi, Parros, Orr, Brashear, etc. He was a tough customer.

haha maybe I'm too young/missed his prime. I have no recollection of him being any good at fighting.

Hated seeing him get into a fight when he played for the Habs, I just had to brace myself for his inevitable beating

Mike Weber is really bad at fighting (Lapierre fought him to a draw, FFS), yet good enough at agitating to get on the wrong side of the biggest guy on the ice (fights against Thornton, Parros, Clowe while giving up a ton of pretty much everything). And he's not small or good enough to just skate away.

Steve Montador is another.

Paul Gaustad since dropping weight in early 2009 because of recurring knee injuries also probably deserves a mention. He was a decent fighter as a 4th liner back in 05, however.

For as many fights as he was in I never saw him win one. I saw players pound him that weren't even known as fighters. He did try, I'll give him that.
