    Here's a guy who led the league in fights with 34 back in 1997-98. The first ever European-born Enforcer, Krzysztof Oliwa. This guy seemed to lose a lot more than he won, not a very skilled fighter - but huge and able to take a punch. He actually worked in the coal mines in Poland as a boy..if that doesn't toughen you up, what will?
    Oliwa's nickname was ' The Polish Hammer ' and he racked up 1,447 PIM's and 164 fights in just 410 NHL games.
    Here he loses to Tie Domi

    I forgot about this one. Dubbed the ' St. Patrick's Day Massacre ' - a line brawl between the Blues and Blackhawks back in 1991 was heavily criticized by NHL brass. Watch for the tilt between Scott Stevens and Big Dave Manson at Center ice its a beauty.

    I sucked at hockey fighting. Here you have perfectly good boxing gloves, mask and a stick and instead of Medieval re-enactment, you toss them all aside to hit them in a judo like grip, swinging wildly in large circles.

    But I still watch them go.

    Since we don't want to just glorify fighting..I'll post some great bodychecks too. Starting with one of the best ever , the beginning of the end for ' The Big ' E ' - Eric Lindros, a solid, shoulder to chest hit from Darius Kasparitus:

    Keep you head up..no matter how big you are. Be sure to watch it until the end to see all the replays from various angles - its a beautiful check.

    Next, we have a bodycheck from probably one of the fiercest D-Men to play the game.
    Scott Stevens was known for delivering incredibly devastating open-ice hits on rushing forwards. LIndros was twice his victim, in this particular game, the Flyers were mounting a comeback in a playoff game and Eric had just returned from a long layoff from a previous concussion.
    The Flyers ended up losing their captain, the game and the series.
    Just for the record, this hit was NOT clean. Notice how Stevens uses his elbow/forearm to make contact with the head. This is no longer tolerated and unfortunately, it took more than just Lindros' many concussions to get the league to make changes. Not until years later when Sidney Crosby suffered a career-threatening hit did the league really start to crack down on head shots.

    There was a couple of times they dropped the gloves during a fierce rivalry that featured many bonecrushing hits:

    Here's a tilt from this season, just a couple of days ago..
    George Parros is widely regarded as the best fighter in the game today. He's no dummy either, and holds a degree from Princeton.
    Here he is taking on veteran tough guy Brian McGrattan. I actually think McGrattan got the better of Parros in this one:

    Oh yes, here's one of the most talked-about scraps so far this year. A bout between two middleweights, both of whom have a reputation for being big-time yappers on the ice.
    These guys do not like one another and this one finally boiled over, now they can concentrate on playing hockey instead of verbally sparring and taking runs at each other.
    I don't particularly like either of them, but I respect them for taking off their helmets and settling this in fine fashion instead of cheap-shotting and mouthing off at one another. Unfortunately, a bit too much holding in this one took away from what could have been a much better fight.
    P.K. Subban and Brad Marchant :
