I wish Chara would fight more often.He reminds me of Ericsson in the sense that he's massive,but we rarely see him get mean.

You don't have to have been alive.

Go to youtube or dropyourgloves.com, and you can watch pretty much any great fighter from the 70's onwards, and watch many of their fights.

Just like it is with people who say they don't know Marlon Brando or John Wayne because they weren't alive back then. Doesn't make a difference when they existed, as long as footage of them is still around.

I've watched a lot of the old fights online. However, I like watching the games and seeing how the fighters enforcers played. I don't think I've watched enough of the old fighters to make an informed list because I usually just watch the names I've heard of before.

I think that Chara will never be an effective enforcer. Firstly, he is one of his team's best players, so even if he wins, his team still loses in a sense. Also, he tends to use his wrestling background a lot.

He had more fights in his first few years in the NHL. He has been fighting less since developing into a legitimate number one defenseman. I would like to see him get angry and fight more often though, especially with the amount of legitimate fighters in the East (Orr, Boogy, Godard, Shelley, Gilles, PL3, etc).

Well when Chara's pissed,he'll go with anyone.I specifically remember when he fought Donald Brashear a couple of years ago back when Brashear was a Washington Capital.And then there was the infamous pummeling of David Koci back when Koci was a Chicago Blackhawk.He's willing to throw with anyone if you get him pissed enough,but it doesn't happen often at all.

Chara is one of the best fighters in the league I would say, but not near the best enforcer. When Chara is pissed, he is a force to be reckoned with and there is not a lot of guys in the league I wouldn't pick him to win a fight over. But like was said before, he is too good to be a legit enforcer or anything because he is a legit number 1 defenseman

Kocur has to be in the top 5. Even Bob Probert himself said Kocur was the toughest fighter he had ever seen. Although Probert himself is clearly number 1 on that list.

Kocur is definitely top 5.In my mind,Probert's a no-brainer.

Yeah Kocur just for having the greatest right hand of all time gets the nod for me. When he was with Detroit in his prime he had Probie too so he didn't have to enforce as much as he would and could've shown his ability better

Off topic,cause he's nowhere near being considered as the best fighter of all time,but what happened to that nut case Andre Roy?

I don't know about that Chara can wrestle guys down but he rarely lands a good punch. When you're that big you sacrifice coordination

One defenseman who is wicked overpaid,but can battle with anyone is John Erskine.I've always really liked him.
