    Who wins in a fight? McLaren or Orr? :help:

    Also, How do our fighters stack up against the rest of the league? honestly.

    (I mean Orr beat John Scott last year but that guy is a monster)

    I think Orr is the pound for pound NHL champ atm.

    pound for pound not really. If Scott was the best since Boogard left us and Orr handled him, just say top period?

    Not sure why Parros is an afterthought.. he's the guy who gave Orr a concussion and knocked him out for awhile.

    Orr's the king but he does show his age sometimes. Mclaren fights are scary.

    Besides knuckles Bernier I agree with people above me that Orr has an edge on McLaren.

    Orr then McLaren. I've seen Devane tagged too many times to consider him. It doesn't mean he won't get better. Broll is tough but not a great fighter either and more of a hockey player than any of those other guys.

    I was actually think about this yesterday randomly lol... I think Orr would beat McLaren

    Bordeleau looks good but he hasn't even faced the East yet so i'll reserve judgement for now. It's not that hard playing half a season fighting guys like Boll and Bissonette. Let's see if he can handle 20+ fights while having to actually fight the toughest guys in the league that all play in the East

    Mcgrattan is always one of the best, Scott is up there just because of his size, Mclaren and Kassian are up there as well and im a big fan of Reaves

    In the prospect pool Devane is a monster who has the size and knockout power... Broll is more of a Fraser, solid fighter but a player as much as a fighter

    Ashton can also fight although he's lighter and Macwilliam seems good at it although he played college

    I would say Orr is top 3 in the league. Bordeleau is the toughest in the league, and Orr/McGratton are a close call at number 2.

    On the Leafs Orrs the toughest, McLaren is a solid heavyweight but just isnt quite as scary hes had a few losses in his career and his fight card last year was about half heavyweights and the rest were kind of light heavyweights or guys that arent that tough.

    To be fair, the ice gave him the concussion though Parros did win the fight.

    Orr is probably, imo, the best fighter in the league but because of his style (all out offense) he's very open to getting tagged.

    Overall the best but far from invincible so in any given fight Mclaren could drop him.

    I'm sure they haven't otherwise it would have been mentioned already but do we know if they've ever fought each other?

    I need to see McLaren face some of the big boys. I feel like he has that psycho mode he goes into that I would just love to see when he's facing some good competition.

    McLaren is the better "fighter". Much better at protecting himself and getting more shots in. Orr has the best right hand in the league, that thing is deadly, but Orr is a KO fighter. Either he's gonna knock the guy out, or he's gonna be knocked out type of thing.

    When they fight since that concussion and its debatable Orr beat him. Now that Parros is on MTL we'll see Mclaren and Orr both take him on and we'll see what happens then

    That can't be right. Orr lost a fight to someone on the Pens (Engelland?) and McLaren got handled by Scott and Kassian. They're both great fighters, but they certainly didn't go undefeated.
