Your right on Wilson, for the most part he used only his right but in a variety of ways, straight rights, hooks and the best uppercut in the business. I don't know why I put him into the switching hands column. Oh well, brain cramp!
I found Wilson to be one of the most consistent and skilled fighters ever.
That is why I have him as number one all-time. Yes, ahead of Bob Probert
, one of my personal favorites and Dave Brown
He fought all the big guys era to era and usually with very good results. He is the only man in hockey they never really got "beaten bad" and that's saying alot with the guys he played against.
He wasn't a favorite of mine as he was a bully, disinterested at times and not the enforcer I would have liked to see, but I have to give him a ton of respect.
He feared no one and if he had been more intense and more of a team guy, he would be universally recognized as the best out there to date.
Some question his ability against lefties but I don't. I think he was very clever and would be smart enough to figure them out and take control of the fights. Unfortunately he didn't get enough opportunitities to do so.
One fight that never happened but I would have loved to see would have been him against Dave Brown
. IMO, he would have beaten Brown in a series of fights because of his chin, balance, strength and his ability to manuever his opponent into his strength, his inside game. That is where I think he would have beaten Brown. He was a great boxer and I thought he had more punching power than Brown as well.
