It also has him losing to Shawn Thornton of all people during Thornton's time in Chicago, but I'm not going to dig up the video.
I don't know, I have all the respect in the world for Laraque but that looks like a pretty good beatdown to me at his expense. You sure didn't see Laraque lose like that.

i believe Fotiu was over rated but if anyone can come with some clear losses i would LOVE to hear of them.
Of all people, Joe Patterson worked Fotiu pretty good... Nick was at the end of his career, but a clear loss for Fotiu. And yes, Fotiu WAS over rated and his "clear" win to Behn Wilson is a myth..

yeah gotta agree for the most part. i was hopin for a real beatdown. bunch of noogie type fights by Joe but a win nontheless.

always thought the same bout the Wilson fight, sweet boxing by Nicky but didn't cut Wilson or put him to the ice. got crucified o the major sites for thinking so.

Paterson was and is under rated. i've watched the Schonfeld fight 50 times and i feel Nicky pushed him over.

Dave Brown, but I think Probert got the best of him in a toe-2-toe towards the end of his carreer

Craig Berube

Nick Fotiu

not lookin to troll but Lyndon Byers tuned up Berube pretty good.

i thought Fotiu [who was over rated] but i guess the Joe Paterson loss was a clear defeat.

not a beatdown but Jay Miller [whom i dislike] clocked Brown in at least one of their fights

I don't know if he was winner or loser, but for years I've been looking for a picture of Rob Ray after a fight skating to the penalty box with the following conditions:

-Old school Sabres jerseys, probably white, before they went goat-head logo.
-He's bleeding down his face from one eye and has an arm raised like he won the fight (in his opinion).
-This was before the 'Rob Ray Rule' so he was shirtless and has his jersey and pads in the opposite hand of the one being raised.
-I'm unsure of the opposing team or fighter.

I've been looking for this pic for more than a decade. If you know of it, please let me know!

But who are guys who you can't remember losing a fight clearly? In other words, maybe they didn't win all of them, but you don't have any recollection of them losing or getting embarassed. I'll throw some names out there, and if you can find video evidence to prove me wrong, or anyone else out there, I say go for it.

Rick Tocchet - Mean SOB if there ever was one. Just had a scary look to him, I don't know what it was, the way his eyebrows looked I guess. Anyway, he had his share of fights and I can't remember him being shellacked.

Stan Jonathan - He bloodied Pierre Bouchard pretty good. He did the same to Bob Lorimer in the 1980 playoffs. He was a little guy who is the best fighter for his size, I think. Can't remember him losing much, he always fought bigger guys too.

Wendel Clark - If anyone wants to put Cam Neely on this list, don't. Clark hammered him in the 1980s. In fact, Clark fought Probert, McSorley, etc. and never backed down from anyone. He was mean on the ice and as gentle off the ice as you can imagine. Another guy who wasn't big at 5'10" but pound for pound was as good as anyone. Maybe someone can find a video of him losing. The thing with him was that he just wasn't afraid to get punched, it was almost like punching a pitbull who didn't flinch.

Eric Lindros - One of the most underrated fighters of all-time. He didn't do it much because he didn't have to. But ask Joe Thornton what happens even if you wanted to test an over the hill Lindros. Or ask Scott Stevens how a young Lindros fared.

Chris Pronger - Always a guy people say picked his spots. Either way, I don't remember Pronger losing a fight, part of his mystique I guess.

Larry Robinson - Another guy who didn't have to drop the mitts too much. Didn't have to. Ask Dave Schultz from 1974. A young Robinson handed him his lunch.


Honourable mention: You could throw Howe on this list, but finding footage of him losing a fight would be hard. Rob Ray is another one who comes to mind. Always seemed to get the best of Domi for whatever reason. O'Reilly is another one. Like Ray, was a fearless caged animal who left himself open but also meant that he always had a free fist. I was going to put Cashman on here but I can remember Jim Schoenfeld beating him soundly in a fight where the zamboni doors flew open.

Anyway, throw some names out there and we'll all try to disprove it.
Tony Twist turned Rob Ray into human hamburger.
