Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Paul Bissonnette at The Hockey News,
Speaking of fighters, who are the five toughest in the game? I call them gamers: guys who come out swinging and don’t back down. Boogaard is obviously No .1: that guy is just scary. Colton Orr is certainly one. Steve MacIntyre in Edmonton. Eric Godard. And D.J. King is a tough guy, too.
But when it comes to actual rivalries, I always butt heads with Dallas’ Krys Barch. I actually fought him four times last year. Don’t get me wrong, I respect him because he’s an honest fighter and he’s clean, but we’re paid to hate each other – we just don’t like each other.
I tell you what, I was surprised to see Pavel Datsyuk fight Corey Perry and I was pretty impressed with how he did. Actually, I don’t know how Perry missed Datsyuk’s head; it’s like Stewie’s from Family Guy. In warmups, I’ll be chirping Datsyuk about it, tap him on the shin pads and tell him, ‘so I hear you’re the new Red Wings fighter.’
