Seriously though, I think Jagr takes home the "thunder thighs" award.

I can't talk for other teams, but on the habs , subban and pacioretty are known for their fitness and strenght. Tons of YouTube videos showing them doing ridiculous power drills.

Ive seen 150 lb female sprinters rep 450 in the quarter squat.
Yep. I was doing 500lbs at 5'11.5" and 160lbs in high school, without the high bars of course. Not impressed by Kreider.

Or, maybe I was actually pretty good at deadlift. Did 315-405 in reps of 5 on a straight bar to get there. It's really not that impessive, especially when you consider the true physical beasts. Roman Polak can almost bench that amount. They say he can rep 315 rather easily.

Nice to see that you have no absolutely idea what you're talking about.

Effectively all of the top powerlifters, oly lifters, and strongmen are "fat".

I dont care whos the strongest its about pound for pound for me. And that has to go to martin st louis. He does squat sets of 405 for 5 reps. His 1 rep max is likely near 450-500lbs and since he does multiple sets @405 for 5 im guessing its closer to 500lbs if he wanted. Thats about 2.75 times bodyweight. Thats elite level squatting and its why hes one of the fastest guys in the nhl still at 37

Even at this age of his career, I think Jagr is still the strongest player in the NHL. He might not be as strong as he was when he was 25-35 but he's still a beast. He's 6'3 and 240 lbs and he's got about 4-5 inches and 30-40 lbs on Crosby so I don't know how Crosby is stronger.

Mike Ribeiro is pound for pound the strongest guy in the league

No other player can do what he does at 127 lbs

I'd nominate Kovy.

Ovi also.

And Latendresse. The guy is a freaking bear.

Also Patches was video taped pushing a sledge with 1X00 pound on it.

PFP I vote for Toni Lydman. I've seen him pick up a 200 lb. player half a foot using his stick as a lever parallel to the ice.

fwiw, too many people gauge strength by bench, squat, etc. Strength would be how powerful a person is overall. ie, an arm wrestling champion would be tossed around like linguine by someone with full body fitness.

...and squatting a large number isn't real difficult. As powerful as St. Louis or Crosby's legs are, they'd be no match for a larger man like Eric Cairns. Not even close.

Martin Lapointe used to be considered the league's strongest man as far as power lifting is concerned. It's rumored he benched 450 lbs, but was listed at 5'11" and 215 lbs. That kinda blows the "biggest man" theory away.

I also found this tidbit:

Mike Komisarek holds the record for the Wingate Test according to Next Testing a company that tests professional athletes. It's unclear based though whether Komisarek holds the record around the world or just the record for athletes that Next Testing has conducted the test on. The Wingate test is considered the "the most popular assessment for peak anaerobic power, anaerobic fatigue and total anaerobic capacity."

My hat is off to guys like Jagr, Rod the bod, and Gary Roberts.

Shane is also full body strong, and lots of endurance.
