Erik Cole is by no means an enforcer, but a 6'2" 205lb power forward should be at least somewhat adequate at fighting. He's absolutely terrible when he drops the gloves though.

I still vividly remember when Scott Walker pummeled him a few seasons ago. It was kind of sad since Walker was at least 6 inches shorter

Fluke win over Tony Twist aside, Francois Leroux was the worst "heavyweight" that I can remember watching. Still the only man I've ever seen turtle TWICE in the same game (in seperate fights with Twist), the guy could never stay on his feet, was always getting tagged, and ended up trying to wrestle people into the ground more often than not.

C,mon... that's way to harsh. Frankie wasn't a great fighter but he wasn't terrible. In addition to Twist, Leroux's fight card includes wins over some marquee fighters such as Frank "the Animal" Bialowas, Dennis Bonvie, Chris Simon, Paul Laus, Reid Simpson, Rob Ray, and Donald Brashear.

He's a clip of Frankie pummeling Nick Kypreos:

All of those players you listed are much smaller than Leroux (granted there aren't a lot of guys his size out there). He won fights with his size and reach, but almost never with technique. I haven't seen that Laus fight though, and I consider him one to be one of the better fighters of that era, so I'll digress until I've seen it.

There was a fight when Gill was still a Bruin where he punched himself in the face with an uppercut. It was against a Penguin. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it live, but when I watched the replay, I nearly died of laughter. Gill is probably one of the worst fighters I've ever seen.

In fairness to Peters, over the years, Walker has handed a number of bigger guys their lunch.

It has to be Gill, this is one of the funniest fight I've seen in a long time:



It looks ridiculous.

Oh brother...........I laughed but seriously how did Gill not pummel him. He's 5'11". You're 6'7". You should win a fight just based on your range and leverage alone. Oh well, at least Gill didn't fall to the ground underneath his opponent which often happened

Don't be so hard on Gill, his game is all about skillz and skating mobility.

Damn, I would love to see a Youtube clip of that. Do you remember who he was fighting?

Nazarov throwing his helmet in Quintal's face is a classic NHL moment. I remember him saying later something like, "I was just protecting myself, I thought he wanted to kill me!"

Lapierre is not that big (6' 2" 207) but he couldn't beat Axelsson or Prucha.

I'll go ahead and say Bryan Allen, he isn't absolutely putrid, but he also isn't good per se. But he is a big guy for sure.
