Huge guys like Boogaard and Mac would be tailor made for upper cuts thrown by 3 of the meanest, most talented fighters in NHL history, Behn Wilson
, Jim McKenzie
, and Dan Maloney
. Maloney is not in my top 10 but he threw vicious uppercuts.
Probert did well against the behemoths of his eras, Dave Brown
was a behemoth himself and clobbered foes big and small, Kocur fought guys bigger than him his whole career and did very well, Larry Playfair
had good size and strength and was plenty mean enough, Laraque, Sandy McCarthy
, and Brashear did well against the giants and they weren't exactly tiny by comparison, and McSorely comes in last of this group, I don't think he would have fared real well against Boo and Mac unless he could just tie them up and eke out a draw.
I also give Mac the edge in terms of fighting skills, I've never really seen him lose many fights while Boogaard was vulnerable and lost a bunch of times being fairly one dimensional while Mac is pretty good with both hands.
With all that being said, Mac and Boogaard wouldn't even be in the NHL in the 70's or early 80's, you actually had to play hockey back then so it's a completely unfair comparison, it's like asking how Mike Tyson would fair against your top 10 or how Mirasty or Serge Roberge
would do against NHL regulars.
