Who are some of the top hitters of the 50's, 60's, 70's? The more you list, the merrier...I'd rather see a list of 20 guys from the 70's than just 1 guy! Thanks

Mike Peca comes my mind quickly, great bodychekcer(small guy, not long from his height and his weight wasnt that much, more small muscled guy but could throw a huge hit).

Luke Richardson, great bodychecker from the past. (=
Lucky Luke, take beatings pretty much but was the boss in hitting play in his teams.

Rob Blake, master of body and ass hits.

lol at 'ass hits'. Those are all good bodycheckers, I'm looking to go further back, into the era's I'm personally not as familiar with.

What's up B-Rad?

Mark Tinordi
Ed Boxcar Hospodar
Cam Neely
Scott Stevens
Paul McDermid


were all pretty good, but Dave Manpon is the only guy I can remember who could knock a guy over with his glare.

Now take the P out of Manpon and rank him where he should be ranked you sons-a-bitches and give the man his respect!

Juha,

Clearly this is a product of some overseas euro bias. DAVE MAN5ON WAS CLEARLY THE MASTER OF THE BODY AND ASS HITS! Dave Man5on could body check that ass like no other player in the league. Now give that legend the respect he deserves and rank him in your all time top ten!

Manpon is one of the best bodyhitters but he isnt one of the best fighters.

I don't know what you are watching but you need to go back and watch a full Dave Man5on tape.

First watch it at real speed with only Pat Foely doing the announcing. You will hear the great Pat Foley remark at how crazy Man5on is. If you hear another announcer come on, put mute on your TV. Only listen to the unbias Pat Foley broadcasts.

Then go back and watch the fights in super slo mo and watch the intensity of Dave Man5on's face. I'm sure will then arrive at an unbiased opiion like the Z's do that he is #3 all time.

I've always been partial to those great hitting defensemen.

Gilles Marrotte
Ron Harris
Denis Potvin
Barry Beck
Larry Playfair
Ed Hospodar
Scott Stevens
Jeff Beukeboom

IMO, the two best at throwing the body were Beck and Stevens. Those were two players that could actually control a game by their physicality.

I will say it, he was master.
Also i remember Mattias Norström from the past, he was master with these type of hits.
Physically force on the ice but not fighter type.

Good! Would you like to join the Z Alliance? We only offer this to the cream of the crop.

You must repost and recite the following pledge for the cause:

“I pledge allegiance to the Z’s , and to the devotion and order of Dave Man5on, Pat Foley and Chicago Hawks hockey for which they stand, one FC nation of Z’s under Pat Foley, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all who Rank Man5on in their All Time Top Ten.

I pledge what I will not rest until Pat Foley is recognized as the King of All Media, until the P is taken out of the Name Man5on, and until Dave Man5on, Al Secord and Curt Fraser are all ranked in the All Time Top Ten.

I pledge that I will confront all of the sons-a-bitches who take Pat Foley’s or Dave Man5on’s name in vane.

I understand that the first rule of the Z alliance is to not talk about the Z alliance.

I understand that this is a movement of great power that will sweep the hockey fight boards and change history.

(Small Print)

I concede that the 2 personalities of TGR32 & Drunk 24-7, two of Z’s Tyler Durden personalities are superior to me and I must always follow their orders. I can only hope to be as good as them someday. Perhaps, if I do their bidding some of their greatness might rub off on me. I might someday learn to not take things too seriously and develope a sense of humor."

No there was clearly a typo from his request were he omitted the 80's guys. Clearly Man5on and the other 80's greats deserve to me in there.

Me and my buddy were discusiing this last night.

How long to you think Scott Stevens would last in todays NHL.

The best hitter of all time IMO, but alot of his hits would be illegal today.

Would he alter his hits a bit, adapting to the new NHL? Would he stop hitting like most dman and just be average? Would he be suspended contstanly, not changing his style?

Guys like Stevens, Kapseritits, Marchmant, Samuellson, could they play in today NHL at a high level like they did?
"Meet me and my foot"...best threat ever.

Stevens could play in any era but his hits today would result in suspensions...The others might have to alter their game.
