Current: Tom Sestito, what he did in Vancouver this year made me happy. He gave the Canucks that Tiger Williams/Gino Odjick/Donald Brashear/Rick Rypien type take-on-all-comers guy.

Brandon Prust, solid, one of the best at it right now.

"Sugar" Ray Emery, I wish this guy coulda been the guy all last season in Chicago, he could have won that cup. But, as long as he's employed and kicking ass, I'm good.

Past:

Gino Odjick, Named my dog (pug) after him, I'm native, he's native. If it wasn't for the 1994 Stanley Cup Finals I wouldn't be alive, he was on that team so yeah.

Donald Brashear, My first jersey was a Donald Brashear, Gino now wears it when I have buddies over for beer and hockey. In NHL 2000 I would make a team of Donald Brashears and another team of Tie Domi's. Fun times.

Currently Brian McGrattan Calgary Flames. Tough as they come, a pure heavyweight aka goon. Yet is a total class act while doing one of the dirtiest jobs in the league.

Past.... I will have to agree with a habs poster on larry robinson. He rarely fought, but when he did look out, he was a big man.

Another guy who did not believe in fighting in Hockey Dave Babych. A shutdown type dman who was a pretty big boy too, his upper body was just huge. Saw Babych fight twice in my life. Once was against a goon Tim Hunter. Beat the snot out of Hunter and when Hunter tried to hang on for dear life Babych picked him up and body slammed him onto the ice. For a guy that did not believe in fighting he was the toughest I have seen.

Honorable mention to Wendell Clarke. He had great technique, allowed him to scrap with much bigger men. If he had been bigger he could take the award!

Bordeleau vs. McGrattan fights were GOAT.

Chris Nilan.. Loved the guy. He wasn't that big and was the top dog (or one of them) for years. He also played a regular shift on a great line when he played with Gainey and Carbonneau.

yeah this tread needs more nilan. another hab that burnt out like a shooting star was john kordic who was also not huge but willing, in that crazy willing kind of way, to go with anyone.

right now I think the cream of the crop is gadzic who also seems to throw with wild abandon.

Big Ern! (McGrattan)

Currently the best heavyweight and an absolute class act on and off the ice!

Good list, sadly only seen them play on old tapes. Agree on Laraque.

For me my Fav was the Hammer. But Big Behn was deadly and the best followed by Dave Brown. Glen used to crack me up before a fight.

How come my Pal Frank the Animal is not getting any love?

Zach Sill.

He's a very entertaining middleweight, and despite not being huge at 6'0 and around 200lbs, he still goes out does well against much bigger fighters. He's a pest and never stops chirping, then he backs it up.
