IF he played enough, John Erskine might be the closest but my team generally tries to find reasons to make him a "#7" and his health along with concussion issues don't help.

John plays with a snarl near his crease, isn't in tinordi's class as a hitter (few were) but does have a similar, open style in a scrap. He's a throwback fighter.

Good call on Erskine as he is a nasty piece of work - BW you piqued my interest and went looking for a Carkner/Erskine scrap, no luck!

His son is big but I don't think he has his old mans mean streak. Pity.

After his fight vs Kordic, Tinordi went straight to the hospital, missed some games and the doctors were baffled that he had double vision for almost a month.

In terms of bodychecks? Hatcher was just as good, if not better, IMO.

Yeah, I'd say Hatcher was on par with Tinordi, very similar, huge players who could skate and freight train guys as well as fight. I think Tinordi was a better fighter than Derian but man, the look on their faces is eerily similar, they have that look of "I want to send this guy through the boards into the stands and hurt the fat guy in row 3 who has drank 7 beers" when a simple shove would take the player out of the play. LOL

Mean, mean guys.

Here's a decent video of Hatcher at his best(worst?)

Derian Hatcher Tribute Video - YouTube

Almost a carbon copy of Tinordi but I think Mark was a nastier fighter, really threw to hurt guys and a faster puncher.

To say hatcher could skate is flat out wrong & funny. He was slow as hell and knock kneed! He used his stick as a pitch fork and was as effective with it as anyone whoever played the game. He couldn't play in today's game or would have a ton of trouble . On the other Side, I agree, he was nasty as hell. I enjoyed his game . Especially him shutting roenick up with that nasty hit and his fight in the World Cup vs. Canada. I believe it was shanahan or primeau. Hatcher had a great career.

He is just cutting his teeth in the AHL, but what about Dylan McIlrath? He was a top 10 pick for the Rags and he was a top heavy in the WHL if he develops as a player he could be a Tinordi type. How is he doing in the AHL?

Hatchet went Primeau in that World Cup of hockey game in 1996. Guerin went with Stevens and Tkachuk went with Claude Lemieux. I have those games on tape somewhere. Great Hockey

I loved Tinordi. He was a big, tough fighting and hard hitting blueliner. He had impressed me with some good fights against some top fighters right away. Standing in there with guys like probert, kocur, kordic clark McSorley etc. Just grabbing on and firing away-mouth open and tongue hanging out. I remember when he smoked Rudy Poeschek-he was for real. I had a high opinion of Rudy poeschek and seeing Tinordi stand there and go toe to toe with a legit NHL HW-opened my eyes. He had some great fights. Would have loved to see Probert-Tinordi round 2. Probert vs. a classic Northstars version of the tin man would have been a war. Not a top 10 guy-he didn't fight as much as the pure fighters during that time-but he could go and would give almost any top-10er a good fight.

If this has already been posted I'm sorry- but here is a fight that is a million times better than some non descript wrestling win on points. An Absolute war and Tinordi going all out with a broken nose.

Actually we wasn't. Hatcher's inability to skate basically made him an east/west hitter. Levelling guys against the boards was his thing. Rarely did you see him take a run at someone at the blueline, or anywhere in open ice.

Tinordi on the hand could catch guys along the boards, but could also hit people going north. He was devastating along the wall, but could also catch people in open ice with their heads down.

Hatcher was absolutely no doubt it more dirty and nasty, but that's it. Scott Stevens is the measuring stick for hitting defenseman. Mark Tinordi was a lot more like Scott Stevens in that regard than Derian Hatcher was.

jarred tinordi will prolly not be as much of a nasty fighter or anything but he will be a fighting and hitting defenseman and when he fights i see almost exactly his dad's bodylanguage and motion when fighting. look out:

mark tinordi's famous fight vs jason smith

Mark Tinordi vs. Jason Smith - YouTube

and some of his sons fights ... look at the body language. too bad mark was fighting heavies but his son isnt nearly as scary

Jarred Tinordi vs Tyler Randell - YouTube

Tinordi vs Heard, Gallagher vs Connolly...
