Is Rypien even 185lbs? Jordan Tootoo can take care of business pretty good for his size...

Rypien, Clarkson, Asham, Carcillo, and Prust are all pretty tough MW's.

Asham, Carcillo, Clarkson, Prust, Konopka. There should be some great MW fights in the Atlantic this year.

an up and comer named Matt Martin may make a name for himself in this category soon enough. (not sure of Martin's size, when drafted in 2008 he was listed as 6'1 180)

In regards to the original question IMO the east goes to guys like Prust, Konopka, Carcillo, Clarkson, and Asham to name a few and in the west I just don't know. I dont view many West games, maybe Too Too for his sze, Rypien to name a few?

One thing is for sure though take a peek at Matt Martin at the end of this year. He should make a name for himself soon enough

Shawn Thornton is a decent middleweight, not a good enforcer though.

if your going to put him in the middleweight category, than he is much better than just a decent one, he is a very, very good middleweight. but really he is a light heavyweight.

In 3 fights with Staubitz, Tootoo lost one, he also one punched TKO's Staubitz in one of them and edged him in the other. I guess 1 for 3 isn't that bad....

hockeyfights.com only has them listed as fighting 3 times. One of them is an AHL fight with no video where Staubitz received a game misconduct and Tootoo didn't receive a fighting major so I don't think he won that one, another is a pretty clear draw, and the other one is the one where Staubitz basically murdered Tootoo.

I'm guessing you're referring to this:



That's not a fight. That's a sucker punch. Staubitz doesn't even get his gloves off until he gets back up and wants to fight Tootoo.

So what? All that means is that he happened to get cut.

He also controlled most of the fight, but didn't do enough to really win.

I don't even care about Staubitz or Tootoo. Just don't try to tell me with a straight face that Tootoo popping a guy who doesn't even have his gloves off (who then pops back up and wants to fight, but Tootoo is no longer interested) is a "fight."

Rypien destroyed Staubitz in a preseason bout last year or the year before.

Rypien, Asham, Tootoo, and Carcillo would get my votes. Homer vote to Rypien as the best of the bunch, and I think he did beat Carcillo at one point.

Still waiting for Rypien to dance with Asham or Tootoo. I got my wish of him going with Janssen last year.

I think Rypien is the best of the bunch as well. Funny I think Tootoo is better against bigger guys as he can just bury his head pull in and swing. I think Rypien would take Tootoo in a fight.
