    He was good and fought a lot but just not in the top 10, IMO.

    He needed a stick to fight Brashear :dontknow:

    Swayze's gonna be pissed I didn't include Wendel Clark :jj:

    Tie Domi was very close to being on the list but I don't think
    he beats anyone on this list.

    Kocur was an animal. Loved watching him fight.

    Probert fought an estimated 280 times in his career. He may have lost a couple :rolleye:

    Domi was scary because he was a sneaky cheap shot mother fucker.

    He had balls and was the enforcer for the Sabres during his time
    but he continually lost to Probert, Kocur, Domi, etc.

    The southpaw fighters were dangerous hockey fighters. Domi was very, very strong for his size.

    Dave Brown was the ultimate southpaw hockey fighter

    Very true.


    Pasted from Bleacher Report

    There is no question that Bob Probert was the heavyweight champion of the 1990s.

    Playing for both the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks, the 6'3'', 230-lb Probert was involved in 283 NHL fights, the majority of which he won.

    Totaling over 3,000 penalty minutes in 935 NHL games, Probert also helped out on offense. His highest point total in a single season was 43 in the 1992-1993 season with the Red Wings.

    Probert will be forever remembered as one of the greatest fighters in the game, paving the way for today's generation of younger enforcers.
