Heaviest NHL player?

I think its John Scott who is listed at 258, Boogaard and Byfuglien are both listed at 257, any heavier. Is John Scott the heaviest Player in the NHL?

Isn't Chara 260?

Strongest how? Crosby has some monster legs, but I doubt he could bench what Chara could.

I'm sure there is a good number of players that can bench more than Chara because Chara at least looks like he has the longest wingspan of any player in the league and longer arms make benching more difficult. I know you were comparing Crosby and Chara and were wondering how "strongest" is judged, but I just thought I'd throw that out there about Chara.

I've heard Jarome Iginla ranks near the top for the flames in their fitness testing
Ivanans despite being a offensive force looks tank

Dustin Byfuglien when he was drafted was about 292 ibs.

Others currently would be Chara, Laraque, Boogard, etc.

I think Brodeur has lipo before every season to take off all that jelly from the offseason.

I keed, I keed.

He was drafted at 280. I believe he was heavier then that though and I think hes heavier now then his listed 258 as well.

As Boogaard is pretty much a non-factor in the league, I'll have to go with Alex O.

I wouldn't really call Chara that strong, he actually being taller then most players has more leverage. At least pound for pound Chara isnt even as nearly strong as others in the league.

Doug Murray is pretty damn strong, I would say Wayne Simmonds is as well. Of course AO and Crosby are strong guys but Crosby is more of a player that exploits leverage more then overall muscle.

I'll go with Joe Thornton, Iginla, or Mattias Ohlund for pure power. But Crosby is able to harness it effectively, so he takes the cake in the end.

I read that Douglas Murray was actually 255. Also during their first round series it was said by one of the announcers that he is over 250 lbs.
