Your Team's All Time Tough Guy Lineup

Say your team was about to have an all out brawl. What would be your all-time fighting lineup? Only rules: Player must have played 3 seasons with your team.

Primeau - Lindros - Tocchet (line ensures we actually win the game )
Berube - Brown - Schultz
Holmgren - Brashear - Kordic
Kelly - Bridgman - Fedoruk

Hatcher - Pronger (again, ensures a victory)
Wilson - Dupont
Van Impe - McCrimmon

Hextall
Snow

Can anybody beat these goons (and very tough skill players)?

I personally think The Chief was the best pound for pound fighter of all time. He may be the only guy to beat Probert 3 times, and imagine if he were 6'3" 230 instead of 6'1" 205. I doubt he'd ever have lost. A ton of other guys who up there who were heavyweight champs and extremely feared. Can anybody top this? Boston? St. Louis?

Thornton is underated in the toughness department, pretty good fighter, destroyed Getzlaf, yeh he lost to Lindros, but it's freakin Eric Lindros.
idk much about Link Gaetz but 326 pim in 48 games??Tim Hunter had 135 in 46 which is impressive,but that has to be some sort of record
edit: ohh there was another one further up that was pretty close. oh well

Joe definitely is underrated in toughness. Link Gaetz was an animal, you should go look up his fight with Bob Probert, its pretty intense. He fought everyone and pretty much was a an untamed beast, both on and off the Ice. Hunter was a feared fighter who was decent defensively.

Some haven't played 3 seasons, but have been with the system for 3 years plus. Defense is pretty scary. Forwards is ok, Fisher is our best player who could throw down.

Malone-Lecavalier-Downie
Dingman-Gratton-Tucker
Craig-Tarnasky-Roy
Dwyer-Wiemer-Clymer

Ciccone-Poeschek
Pratt-Sarich
Bergevin-LiPuma

Smith
Cloutier

Guys who didn't make the 3 year minimum cutoff, but would have made the team otherwise:
Konopka (2 seasons, 3rd all-time in TB fights)
DeBrusk
Barnaby
Myhres
McCarthy

I also swapped out Cullimore-Kubina, with Bergevin-Lipuma, as although the former had more fights, they were much less frequent than the shorter stinted latter pairing.

So many great candidates for the defense. Which is depressing, since the Hawks have so few today. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.

This 3 year criteria really handicaps the Flames. Now I can't include Chris Simon, Stu Grimson, Craig Berube, Jimmy Kyte, Rocky Thompson, The Polish Hammer Oliwa, etc.

But we still have Tim Hunter, Sandy McCarthy for heavy's and Ronnie Stern, Jim Peplinski, Gary Roberts, Iginla for guys that can score and fight. We would have to have Neil Sheehy on Defence, that fumanchu he used to wear was pretty imposing!

We can do better... starting with losing Antoski, he was terrible. Didn't have the balance of a two year old. Walker played forward... and we had better tough guys than Brookbank, Hordi (at least during his time with our team) and McAllister.

This works a bit better, IMHO

Odjick Kurtenbach Williams
Fraser Rypien Walker
Momesso Scatchard Brashear
Hunter Coxe Delorme

Snepsts Mcilhargey
Richter Butcher
Jovo Diduck

Cloutier
Potvin

I especially like the Fraser Rypien Walker line. One of the strongest middleweight combos any team could come up with. They could probably take the Bruins hypothetical MW line of Stock-Linseman-Jonathan.

Can't think of any other tough guy goalies
Any other player who ever wore a Sharks uniform should be in before Rathje. 6'-5" 240 and 5 career fights against the likes of Jeremy Roenick and Jamie Pushor. He got fighting majors aginst Simon and Chasse but never even threw a punch in either and got pummeled. Hands down the softest big guy ever in the league.

How about Jimmy Kyte? And Vernon in the net? He has over 250 PIMs. Stern only played 2 seasons with the Sharks so maybe slip Dody Wood in there.

The rest of the list is good though.
