Pretty clearly in the light-heavy class IMO.

Brett Gallant is a good fighter...and his dad Mike Pinky Gallant was also a BEAST in his day and was a star in Atlantic Canada in the Senior hockey ranks . He was fearless...

last year, Rinaldo record was 5-10-2 according to DYG. Funny that some people think he's in the top of middleweight class just because of a ko over Crombeen

I agree, Neil is a bully against smaller guys he thinks he could intimidate. He would fight Ryan White but would never have considered fighting Big Georges when he was with Habs. And naturally sboids modt heavyweight Bruins but looks for Campbell or Marchand.
He's a *****cat against Buffalo or Boston.

"One Tough Hombre" Adam McQuaid. Light-heavy? (maybe due to height/reach, cause the kid is a stringbean )

No one said he hasn't gotten better....

He's just nowhere on the radar when it comes to top middleweights ...

He's a tough S.O.B ...but I think he's a little too big for middleweight?

Yea when playing Toronto if guys like Orr and McLaren are in the lineup he is quiet as hell when they arent he picks fights with smaller non fighters.

Last season he fought Schenn, Grabo and tried to fight non fighter rookie Ashton.

Probably too tall, but I think he was ~200lbs, and that's before he lost weight/strength over the summer after undergoing surgery to correct a blood clot. Guess he's a tweener -- somewhere between middleweight and light-heavy.

And yet hes fought Chara twice, Lucic twice, hes fought Orr. And lol@ being afraid of Buffalo, hes pushed around their entire team since 05-06

Are people really bringing up height when it comes to weight classes???

This is a rough go of how it should break down.

170-184lbs: Welterweight
185-204lbs: Middleweight
205-220: Light Heavyweight
221+: Heavyweight

Its a hockey fight though not boxing. Height is really important in a hockey fight both height and weight need to be considered.
