homer pick but i love boulton. a lot of guys would call him a pansy because of his style but you have to respect that he's learned how to fight despite being smaller than most fighters and he's learned how to stay on his feet until the other guy is too tired to do anything and then get his punches in
i loved his bout with colton orr last year.

Reason: mod edit, fixed YT link
Not the best fighter but would take on all comers and would do something today's enforcers don't do, enforce. None of that staged fight crap. Knew exactly how to send a message and could play some damned good hockey as well. The Gainey, Carbo and Nilan line is still the best checking line I've ever seen and he was a very important part of it.

Blue collar guy who slogged it out for 10 years in the AHL before Brian Burke gave him a chance in Anaheim. He has proven to be a capable fourth liner who can throw down with anybody. He's a rags to riches underdog who often takes on and defeats HW much bigger than he is.
Rypien is probably the most entertaining fighter to watch (in a fight). I enjoy watching boogaard skating around poking people, them talking smack and skating to the bench, then boogaard smirking. And as someone else said above it's fun to watch him barrel full speed into a corner looking to crush someone.
Everyone here says stuff like "Rypien isn't afraid to fight anyone" and the most hilarious of all the one about heavyweights being afraid of him...He has plenty of opportunity this year to fight Grats and Boogaard (hell, even Scott--Scott isn't that great of a fighter, Rypien shouldn't have any problem). Looking forward to watching it!
