Who's the NHL's best fighter?
Wed, October 10, 2007

Derek Boogaard would like to assure Edmonton that it's nothing personal, that it was pure coincidence, really, the Oilers had to scrape all those players off the ice last season. But he's glad you're thinking about him.

"It speaks to his effectiveness that we're speaking about him," admits Oilers coach Craig MacTavish. "Until we prove that we can negate his effectiveness with some good offence and make him a liability instead of an asset, we're going to have to deal with these questions."

Beware of the Boogeyman

Well, he doesn't have have to do it anymore because everyone stays away from him, but my vote goes to George Laracque.

I don't know who the best would be but Boogaard seems to do pritty good. Every team should have one!

Hey don,t forget John Kordic he may have lost the battle in the end but he won many before that. Good scrapper

Chris Simon...have you taken too many blows to the melon? Laroque is the strongest and Brashear probably has the fastest hands. Where was Dave Brown on the all time list. He had fists of stone.

Can't believe someone put together snapshots of what they consider to be the Top 10 fighters of all time - and included Wendell Clark & Tie Dummy but not Larry Robinson who could take both in the same game. Ask Schultz, who was destroyed by Robinson the first time the Flyers had to face the Habs in the playoffs. Idiotic list.

What about Eric Godard of the Flames? He beat the tar out of Boogaard twice last year. The thing that makes players nervous about Boogaard is that he's dirty as hell - he doesn't follow the fighters code at all.

One of the best ever was Dave Brown. Flyers, Oilers... this guy was scary ...just ask Stu Grimson....Not much Flash but had a Sledgehammer for a fist.

Chris Simon is by far the best fighter in the NHL!!
