Picking an All-Time NHL Tough Guy Team

December 4th, 2014 by Andrew Petyak Leave a reply »
There are a lot of tough guys in the NHL.

Any sport that legally allows guys to punch each other unconscious makes toughness a requirement.

In a league filled with some of the toughest, baddest athletes in the world, what would happen if a team was formed of only the toughest and baddest?

That's what this list will attempt to do. But there will be some ground rules.

First off, the ability to drop the gloves, while heavily favored, won't be the determining factor for making this team. No one player in the starting lineup is alike, just as the perfect NHL line wouldn't be ideal with five snipers or five playmakers.

After all, toughness can be measured in many ways. There's physical toughness but there's also mental toughness. All the players on this list are a challenge to play against, whether it's with fists, an unmatched scoring ability or even an unwavering mental mindset that has opponents quivering in their skates.

We'll start it off with some of the honorable mentions who are good enough for this team but not out there during the opening faceoff.
