    Yeah but Malkin's 10 months younger. He has the potential to be a better fighter.

    Er, do either of them fight at all?

    It's probably some guy nobody has ever heard of.

    Ovechkin just got in a fight recently with a guy who is about 30 years old and weighs 18 pounds more than Ovechkin. Apparently the guy broke Ovechkin's nose then they fought.

    Yeah, pure fighters aren't usually drafted anyway.

    Eager is an exception, but it's mostly because of his ability to play the game, I've never really heard anyone rave about his fighting skills.

    Well we don't know if he won that fight, but at least he's not a wuss.

    Tell the Canucks that. They used their 5th Round Choice last year to select French goon Marc-Andre Roy, Im a better hockey player than him.

    I've never seen him play, but I've heard that he's mostly a sideshow, with lots of trash talking and turtling.

    He's a good fighter, but he does do the fake glove drops and turtles as well, comparable to a guy like Brashear or Domi.

    I'll give a real answer here and nominate Evan Schafer from Prince Albert(WHL). He is 6'2 221 and had 192 PIM in 71 games. Mark Fistric is also a pretty tough kid from Vancouver(WHL).

    In '03, Matt Nickerson was drafted by Dallas in the 3rd Round. While he's in college, I think it's safe to say he projects as a goon in the NHL.

    Wade Belak went in the first round, as did Dingman, how sad is that. Probert was a 3rd rounder.

    Bob Probert was a steal in the 3rd round.......

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the hawks take a tough guy in the late 2nd, or third this year.

    The only real enforcer we have in the system is Thornton, and while he is game, he just isn't big enough to be an NHL heavy(IMO).

    Now that Tallon and Pulford are back in charge- I'd be shocked if they didn't go after at least one "goon". And I'm all for it.

    Georges Laraques pre-accident was worth a 2nd rounder and then some.

    Nickerson offers much more than just the goon game. While he did set the ECAC record for PIMs with 179, his 14 points are not too shabby either, especially for a freshman dman on a team that struggled to score most the year.

    In his last year of juniors, he had 30 points and 277 PIM's. From reports I have heard on him, his offensive game is improving, and he is making smarter decisions as to when to engage in conflict, rather than just going around looking to kill someone. I think that he was a very good pick by Dallas in the 3rd round.

    I agree whole-heartedly, but nobody said that a goon couldn't do things other than fight.
