Hugs Or Uppercuts?

While by no means the best fight clip out there, this one will be of particular interest to Caps fans starting at around the one-minute mark (and to awful uniform fans from the get-go):

Thanks to capsfaninbc for the pointer.



1) Wow, miss those good ole days!! LOL
2) Amazing, 30 fights and no one was carried off on a stretcher unconscious. Either they were tougher then, or they hit harder now. ; )

I think you know the answer to that one.

Tiger Williams: 5'11", 190 lbs

Colton Orr: 6'3", 220 lbs

Tiger Williams would kick the crap out of Colton Orr. No doubt about it.

I don't doubt that. All I'm saying is that players are inarguably bigger and stronger now than they've ever been before. As a result, I'd be willing to bet that they are, on average, delivering more pounds-per-square-inch of force with their punches as well.


1) Can bet ya even if he had the absolute shit kicked out of him Williams would NEVER allow himself to be carted off on a stretcher unless he was dead! Even then he'd fight it. LOL

I knew Hanlon was a tough guy and he sure roughed up that goalie. JP is right and I will add that all the growth hormones in modern food may be to blame for all the oversized players now. Conussions probably happened in the past its just the internet makes them so heavily scrutinized now. Imagine the NHL in 100 years - players will all be 7 foot 300 lbs.
