No Voros yet? And Boyle can't fight for ****. Whoever said Dubinsky is dumb. He both wins and loses some.

Anyway, on the Bruins, I agree that Campbell does get beat up a lot.

Also, Ference willingly fights all the time, which is great, but he doesn't win many at all.

Aaron Voros. The only time he was able to get the upperhand was when he pulled the other guy's jersey over his head.



Brian Boyle fits this too.

Trevor Gillies always seemed to me to be just the moustache, but not a good fighter at all. Still can't understand why we would play him over Haley.

Craig Adams 4 wins 30 losses 17 draws but in his time with the Pens he's got 1 win 10 losses 6 draws and in 10-11 he went 0-6-0.

Kostopoulos is/was just awful.

Kelly Buchberger has been mentioned a few times.

From days done by, Steve Leach was someone who didn't fight heavyweights, but still got his ass kicked on a regular basis. I remember a lot of his fights being guys like Ken Daneyko or Bob Boughner or Cale Hulse, but I don't remember him ever getting the best of anyone.

It won't be popular, but Steve Webb was an absolute punching bag when he came into the league. I give him all the credit in the world for coming in at 6'0" and being willing to take on anyone, but he was totally overmatched. He ended up not doing too badly once he became a physical forward rather than an undersized enforcer.

Gino Odjick was decent, but he had a size advantage on nearly everyone and also always seemed to find a way to give himself an additional advantage from the beginning. Usually it would involve jumping someone or suckering someone in a scrum and then going at it. I remember one time, and I think it was against Tony Twist, Odjick jumped him right off the drop. Twist had seen it coming and had turned his body to keep his right arm free as soon as the puck left the official's hand.

I can't stand Dipietro but to call him a punching bag for getting knocked out by the 6'3 Brent Johnson is a bit extreme. He won his one other fight vs what would be his future (and now former) teammate Al Montoya.

Vukota was never in the elite class of enforcers like Probert and Domi, but he certainly wasn't a punching bag either. I could be wrong about this, but I don't ever recall him ever getting ko'd either.

Webb was the first guy I thought of as well. I used to cringe every time he'd drop the gloves cos he almost never won. Thankfully management eventually told him to stay away from fighting and he turned into an effective 4th-line energy guy.

I disagree, Dubinsky wins about as many as he loses. Brian Boyle on the other hand...

I might be a minority, but I dont even remember when George "Stache" Parros have won a fight? I always had the impression that his facial hair only exists to cover his bruises...

He went like 12-2 as an Islander.

Actually, his only fights where I can say he lost were against Boogaard and even then he didn't really lose and Godard at Pittsburgh.
