Dream matchups...

Tie Domi vs Stan Johnathan

Two mighty mites, that hit hard...Real hard! And two guys that also knew how to fight, and could take a punch.


George McPhee vs Rick Rypien

Get the pistons going in this one! Damn, this would have been entertaining, technical, and an all out war!

Tony Twist vs Colton Orr

No hanging on here, just stand back and chuck em! On the juice, Twist gets the advantage. On the level, Orr tags him and puts him away!

Darin Kimble Vs Bobby Nystrom

Potential to be a rock em sock em bout!

What are YOU talking about?

If Ali could skate on the level he boxed, no one could match him on an on ice fight.

Orr out muscled by Lemieux?

I don't think so.

Lemieux had six inches and forty-five pounds on Orr. Orr would be outmatched physically.

Without question.

If Muhammad Ali was a solid enough skater to play, let's say, Junior A or collegiate hockey, he'd have enough strength and balance, on his skates, to take out any NHL player. Hockey players are, for the most part, terrible fighters. Any boxer worth his salt, that could skate well enough, would make quick work of an NHL heavyweight.

Sometime in the early 1970's there was serious talk of a boxing match between Wilt Chamberlain and Mohammad Ali. The conventional wisdom at the time was that Chamberlain, being a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier, would have beaten Ali handily.

Wilt wouldn't have made it through the first round.

A boxer's toughest adjustment wouldn't even be the skating. It would be the holding of jerseys by the opponent. Even so, the boxer would win. Fotiu rarely lost and often times let up on lesser fighters.

Wilt would have got destroyed, but fighting on ice is so different from the ring. If Ali could skate at an average NHL level, he'd likely drop anyone. But if he couldn't, I don't see how he'd consistently be able to beat up the likes of Probert, Laraque, and Boogard. Anyways, all pointless conjecture anyways.

Sid and OV I am still dying to see.

Howe against Neely, or some other power forwards throughout history would be pretty sweet too.

The Refs should have let them finish, Behn ALWAYS lost the first half of most of his fights. Both players were still standing when the linesmen jumped in.

The "Holy Grail" of NYC fight fans.....I'm just not as impressed as some about this fight.

You hardly ever hear Fotiu's name when they discuss the all-time top five in the NHL, Wilson is ALWAYS mentioned.....JMHO

oh dear.......yeah wilson always turned it on in the second half, especially against MIKE BOSSY!!!!!!!

dream matchups....gillies vs fotiu (and they played in the same era!) or howe vs gillies......one of the most "no way" stats out there is that gillies never had over 100 pm in a season

Size doesn't equal being a good fighter and Lemieux was not a fighter. Lemieux had his jaw broken in 1987 by Bobby Gould (5' 11 180lbs) and did not fight again for nine years. Orr fought often in his career and won regularly. Orr was known for having a dark side of his personality, a bad Irish temper, and Orr fought the toughest goons on the other team.

I donít think there is any evidence to suggest Lemieux was a good fighter and could beat anyone who had any talent for fighting. If you said Lindros would manhandle Orr I would not argue much with that statement, but Lemieux wasnít a fighter and never illustrated any talent for fighting.

Domi in his prime against Janssen. That would be a long, slug-fest.

Don't try to talk your way out of it. Your boy got his ass kicked.

Fotiu rarely fought compared to other tough guys because most guys were afraid of him.

If you don't believe me read Dave Schultz' book. He was scared to death of Fotiu and wouldn't come near him. At least Wilson and Holmgren had enough guts to have Fotiu beat the crap out of them.
