Dont know how Colton Orr is so low on your list, hes been doing it for years, hes fought everyone and beat everyone. He wins the majority of his fights and is tough as nails. Hes lost some fights but when you fight 20-25 times a year and each of those opponents are all tough heavyweights your not gonna win every fight. And when he does lose its rarely a clear loss, usually just got out punched but still was a great fight. He has got caught a few times in his career but who hasn't.
This list was posted a year ago.
I would take out Macintyre who doesn't have a single NHL fight in the last 2 seasons. I would also remove Shelley, Hordichuk and Thornton who are finished.
In your opinion, who are the top ten best NHL fighters?
Here's my list of the top ten best NHL Fighters:
1. Brian McGrattan and Steve MacIntyre
2. Shawn Thornton
3. Matt Kassian
4. Matt Carkner
5. John Scott
6. George Parros
7. Ryan Reaves
8. Jody Shelley
9. Colton Orr
10. Darcy Hordichuk
Honorable mentions: Jay Rosehill, Brandon Bollig, Jared Boll, Eric Boulton, John Erskine, Brad Staubitz, Cam Janssen, Krys Barch, Mike Rupp, Stu Bickle, Arron Asham, Deryk Engelland, Chris Neil, Matt Martin, Derek Dorsett, Adam McQuaid, Zenon Konopka, Tim Jackman, Brad Winchester, Mike Brown, Jim Vandermeer, Matt Walker, Cody McCormick, Jamal Mayers, Cody McLeod, Kyle Clifford, Zac Rinaldo, Micheal Haley, Aaron Volpatti, Ryane Clowe, Milan Lucic.
How is Thorton ahead of Scott? Scott realigned his jaw last year. Orr should be higher as well. McLaren should def be on that list.
