Neither Rinaldo or Konopka are punching bags in my eyes, at least.

Jeff Cowan didn't win many of his fights. Torrie Robertson was a terrible fighter, too.

Cowan was one of those guys that was alright when he fought in his own weight class but he often fought guys bigger than him and would take a beating. He like most of the guys on this list took alot of beatings because of having an entertaining fight style with limited defense. Stortini is the biggest punching bag because he not only took beatings but his fights were all defense buts hes bigger than most of the guys mentioned at 6'4 220lbs

No doubt Stortini is a major punching bag. Wonder if anyone will pick him up. I believe he's a UFA. Fellow punching bag Tom Kostopoulos is also a UFA.

He's been mentioned numerous times but I'd almost feel sick to the stomach for him the moment Buchberger would drop the gloves. You just knew he was going to take some solid shots to the face, every time.

Cowan always came across to me as a guy that got to pro hockey and realized that he was nothing special, so he started fighting to add a dimension. His PIMs took a huge leap his third season as a pro. Went from 23PIM in 69gp in his second season to 117 in 71, with 11 fights all of a sudden in his third year.

Terrible fighter, but any time someone took liberties on his teammates, he'd jump in there. I have a lot of respect for the guy.


This basically sums him up.

When was this? he was a pillow-fist. He'd get man handled by guys smaller than him or he wouldn't throw a punch. He wasn't a punching bag however, he was just embarassing.

People who said rinaldo and konopka are laughable. They don't win them all but they scrap well and i've never seen them totally get their ***** kicked. Greg Campbell who i like as a player and respect his willingness is one of the biggest punching bags in the league.

He did pound Ryan O'Byrne a few years ago.

Abdelkader is a punching bag, always willing to throw and always getting his ass kicked.

Jeff Cowan and Kelly Buchberger.

Another guy that got his butt absolutely whooped to the point you feared for his opponents knuckles before every fight was Dana Murzyn. I love Dana because he would always show up and take one for his 'mates.
He always looked so incredibly angry before each fight too, as in "this time I'm so mad I'm really going to mess you up." He would then proceed to take 20 unanswered punches to the head.

Nick Kypreos was very tough but fought way too wide open and took some awful poundings.

Denny Lambert is an example of an effective middleweight who lost his scrapping prowess quickly at the end of his career.

In the early 90's, the Bruins' Brent Hughes would regularly get pounded by fighter and non-fighter alike.

Dana Murzyn was a courageous but inept scrapper who was always willing but seldom able.

Hector Marini was the Flyers whipping boy in the early 80's and an awful technical fighter.

Craig Coxe is a good example of a heavyweight who liked to stand toe-to-toe but often came out on the short end. He rarely fought non-fighters though.

Torrie Robertson was an 80's middleweight enforcer (more of a wrestler) who fought frequently but rarely won.

He can't beat anybody else, but at least he can beat Max Lapierre

I only checked the first and last pages, but Ivanans?

He's playing in the KHL now I think.

He's not a great fighter, but I wouldn't go as far as calling him a punching bag.

He didn't win many, but he always showed up and stayed on his feet. He was still a legit heavyweight, there are many guys who were far closer to a punching bag than him.

Craig Adams only skill is the ability to make things hit him (pucks, fists, ladies drinks). He wins hands down. Riley Cote is a close 2nd, but at least he loses to tough guys.


Adams loses to all.

Jeff Cowan delivered the best headbutts to fists, in the history of the NHL.

He wasn't a "punching bag" but Craig Coxe was one of the most entertaining mediocre fighters of the last 30 years (mediocre in that he really had no clue how to hockey fight).
