    With the Tom Wilson hoopla recently, who would you say is the dirtiest player to ever play for your team? As a Devils fan, Claude Lemieux is probably the most notorious dirty player to play for them.

    Claude Lemieux? He was a pest though, not dirty.

    Raffi Torres with Edmonton was just a little bit dirty but still decently productive and brought solid energy. Once he went to Vancouver he was a full pyscho though.. maybe too much time spent at Roxy and after hours places?

    Loved Gryba in Ottawa. Rewatching That hit on Eller is how I reach inner peace.

    I'm guessing a Wings fan would beg to differ:sarcasm:

    Bet someone says Scott Stevens though.

    Well Wilson's not worthy of a pest, not the same.

    Well not back to his Montréal days, he was a tough sob with a huge heart. Though maybe he got dirtier with time ;)

    As a Sabres fan, f*** that guy. As someone trying to be objective- ya, I get it. Even when I hated him, I knew I’d appreciate him in blue and gold.

    Also..

    Patrick Kaleta. Teenage me loved his reckless wreck ‘em style. Different opinion now, that one on Kariya was never defensible, but at the time I loved how much of a random game changer the dude could be.

    Tkachuk, Matthew. Has mostly sucked this season but love a skilled player that isn't afraid to get greasy.

    Kaleta, Rob Ray, and Matt Barnaby. f*** those guys :laugh:

    Tie Domi's another one from our end that a lot of Leaf fans loved, but he really, really completely lost me after the Niedermayer hit. It was genuinely one of the most bush league things ever and it completely erased any momentum we had from winning that game. That hit woke up the Devils big time and they eventually destroyed us in game 7.

    Everyone's going to expect us to say Marchand for Boston. Unpopular opinion but I think Marchand's reputation is overstated and largely stems from some incidents from early in his career, he's been playing clean for 3 years now, and pretty much all the disciplinary actions after about 2013 were reputation-driven and not assessed on their own merit.

    I think Lucic was a more "dirty" player. by that I mean he crossed the line at times to where even I as a fan was like "alright man, cool it down." But I loved that it came from a place of passion and competition, not malice.

    Otherwise the players that opposing fanbases derided as being dirty thugs back when we were a physical team - Thornton and Chara mostly, were standup players and widely respected across the league, even with that Orpik incident and the Pacioretty accident that everyone went crazy about. Going back years before that, Kyle McLaren is pretty much only remembered for that flying elbow on Zednik in the playoffs. But I loved the physicality he brought even if he crossed the line (also, I was like 14 then so I didn't feel bothered by him throwing a cheapshot against our biggest rival).

    Last guy on the team who I think was a total dirty tool? Probably McSorely.

    Trevor Gillies, if he qualifies as a player, and Zenon Konopka, if he qualifies as dirty
