That Orr fight is just insane. Scott made Orr look like a little kid in size comparison!

Carlyle is molding this team into one that's extremely tough and hard to play against. I remember that championship Anaheim team he molded was tough as nails and a pain to play against.

Winning 64% and drawing 9%. Losing 27% (Orr to Westgarth, McLaren to Thorburn, Fraser to Foligno and MacDermid, Brown to Prust and Crombeen).

Nothing to sneeze at. It's pretty impressive to be leading the league in fights and still maintaining a top-3 winning percentage.

They are both terrible hockey players who are liabilities to their team outside of the niche they fill. Orr is more of a goon than Scott. Scott's just a good old fashioned enforcer, he's very classy. Doesn't take runs at guys, doesn't take cheap shots, he's just generally classy and follows the code pretty much to a T. Check out his interview after the fight with Scott, very classy. Orr's pretty much a goon (and I love it). He takes runs at players, takes cheap shots, he's full of much more disrespect and fire. If Scott had Orr's mentality he'd be ridiculously terrifying.

Stupidest comment so far, there is no one in the NHL that is ever close to Orrs level as a enforcer. Scott fumbles his way over and asks Mclaren to fight. Orr showed in Mtl how a true enforcer acts. To even say Scott is a enforcer is laughable.

Love in the second fight seeing how closly Fraser is watching the action. Anyone think he may be "studying" for when Scott tries going after him? I mean Scott has already lost to our other two Leaf enforcers, think he may try for hat trick with Fraser?

Love Orr running Canadians...

Toronto under Burns was a tough as nails team and we played very well and went deep in the playoffs

This team has that potential we have the right coach and 80% of the players, Reilly is one thats missing but on the way, just need a big winger for top 6 and a big centre..

Scott is too nice of a guy....

to be a real enforcer. You gotta have a guy that might snap and hulk out if disrespected. Think Orr at the end of the Montreal game, or Probert every second of every shift he played.

Probert was an animal. Genuinely nice guy too. Had a number of chances to share brews with him here in Windsor. He was also the prototype for Darren McCarty. A guy who could scrap with the best of'em, and contribute on the ice and in the room.

I had the pleasure of spending time with both of them. They're a lot more important than people give them credit for, for their respective teams.

I grew up watching global sports at University hoping to see Probie or Kocur in a scrap..

Its not there play alone that effects the entire team its the space and courage it gives smaller or more skilled players to push harder...

Last year we had none of that zero...

Let's take a step back here. The only fighter on our team who seems to be playing well is Fraser I mean Macleren and Orr have had some pretty big defensive laps this year. Would not call them "regular shift." fighters.

Mclaren is a 0 and Orr is a +1. I don't know where the "defensive lapses" come from. +/- isn't a good statistic for most situations but in this one it shows perfectly that both can play a regular shift. Especially Orr playing a couple of games on the third line with Kadri and MacArthur and still coming out a plus

I can recall our fourth line getting hemmed into their zone numerous times during the start of the season. I like Maclaren and Orr and have nothing against fighters but to think they are in a different world than Scott seems odd. I mean none of them are Shawn Thornton who can play a good 11-14 mins a night.
