Yeah, I meant current. Did you really think I was putting those four players over those four legends?

This is about the toughest not the best so Gary Howett gets my vote too.

Brian Gionta is probably the toughest current NHLer pound for pound.

He's like 5'7" with skates on.

Francis Bouillon 5ft8 200lbs.. this guy is really strong, and he looks like a bodybuilder. I remember Jose Theodore said that Bouillon may be 5ft8, but he plays like hes 6ft4, and its so true.

He's the modern day Rudy

That Detroit team was something special. I love watching whatever I can find of them.

Remember the time Sergei Samsonov got into a fight? (I'm not 100% sure who it was against, maybe Kapanen...I'm sure it was against the Canes because it was all Sean Hill's fault)

Toughest little guy ever... no contest, it's Tattoo from Fantasy Island. That sneaky little #&*!@%@ lured you in with his cheery smile and chubby little cheeks. Then, once you got in close he showed who was the "boss" by delivering painful blows to his opponents groin..

Fleury seems to be getting alot of love.

I was watching Classic Hockey on TSN last night from 1994 and there he was. With all of his 'problems' we tend to forget that he could play. He was a point a game player.

Stats:
GP 1084 G 455 A 633 PTS 1088 PIM 1840

What a shame...

Just remembered another memorable little guy: Mitch Wilson, the 5'9 guy the Penguins tried out as Lemieux's bodyguard for a few games in 86-87. Mario apparently wasn't impressed by the idea of having a guy a half-foot shorter than him protecting him.

Stan Jonathon or Gary Howett, EASILY. Although that's only because I don't believe Ted Lindsay was "only" 5'9". I think he was 5'10" at least.

Theo Fleury? Whatever. Dave Keon was tougher than Theo! And he was a CLEAN player!
