Langer is one of the biggest pillow punchers i've ever come across. Stunned Probert?? If by stunned you mean stung? I'll have to see that fight. He threw very quick, short punches. He outpointed guys. with stinging shots from both sides. I think he had just the one tko in his entire NHL career. I don't remember him hurting anyone or breaking any faces save for maybe Odjick. I could care less though as Langer was a great marathon fighter who won the majority of his fights by going the long haul. I don't think it's an insult to call him a pillow puncher. Jay Miller
also gets labled a pillow puncher as well and he's one of my all-time faves. And he probably had more tko's to his credit than langer did. Guys like them developed a style where they simply didn't go for the bomb or the KO shot. Langer did counter like it was no one's business though. great fighter. but a pillow puncher. I think he hurt doug Zmolek
with a punch to the throat though. I also have to disagree about him being a boring fighter. There was lots of action in his fights. His style just didn't fit in with the crash and bang I-want-everything-right-now short attention span generation.
