The toughest little SOB to play under 5'9''. You'd have to see his Calgary Flames days to i guess realize that. His last season as a Ranger he played 82 games and had 216 penalty minutes...dude's a monster for a lil guy.
Yeah I miss Fleury a lot too, great little sparkplug, probably wont get into the HOF now.
I'd have to say that other tough guys under 5'9" would be Yvan Cournoyer. He's remembered most for his blinding speed, but another thing is that he got knocked down by the biggest guys and just bounced up like he was a jack in the box. He was strong, strong in the waist and legs.
