McGrattan's last full season with the Flames he had 13 fights in 76 games.

Boogey played in 277 game with 70 NHL fights, one in every four games. Not bad. He was scratched in about half the games every season.

Sorry Parros didn't have an 1/8th the fear factor.
I see Blue! . . . He looks glorious!

Boogaard was a scary dude. I know for sure that a lot of guys were scared to fight him just by the way they reacted when they had to fight him.

Brian McGratton was feared as well, but the enforcer was expiring just around the time he was reaching his peak.

Brawls does have a point, if McGratton was in suitable competition towards the last of his ears, he could definitely be the last heavyweight champion of the NHL.

However, the last guy that I thought was absolutely undisputed and was genuinely feared throughout the league was Derek Boogaard.

Great his era sure. Tactician, powerful, good puncher, great technique, impressive overall his whole career, doesnt lose often...was involved in fights with Brashear, Laraque, Ivanans, Cairns, Domi, Peters, Belak etc. Real badass. Slow on the ice, probably it was his only minus as a player, plus weaker skills.

He loved to fight a la Tony Twist. Not many fighters can compare...arguably a Top Ten of all time.
