McGrattan, easily.

Lucic simply might not lose one as bad as the others - that's about the best he'll do against a near perennial top 5 HW like McGrattan.

McGrattan, no question.

3-0

I'd say 2-1 for McGratton.

McGratton is the best in the NHL in my opinion, but Lucic can throw with both hands and has as solid a chin as there is. Gives him a shot in one of the fights

In his worst loss (Orr) it was very close until he got his nose destroyed and then stood and took some serious bombs.

I think the better question might be where would Lucic be ranked if he strictly was used in an enforcer role and paid more attention to his fight game.

I think he could be dominant.

McGrattan takes it 2-0-1 i'd say.

The fight will never happen though, at least i don't think. They're both really good friends.

One for Gratts, one draw, one for Looch.

There's a reason why so few people wanna step up to the hunchback, he ain't even built like a hockey player or even a human for that matter. And McGrattan often leaves himself wide open like he's thinking he can take any old cinderblock coming his way - which is just what Looch is perfectly capable of throwing.

McGrattan has a pretty strong chin and will just throw toe to toe no defense. Lucic would probably only fight him once and get beat pretty good. He took some bombs from Bordeleau and still wanted more by the end.

Not worth discussing, this hypothetical would use up all of McGrattan's 3 fights per season quota.

Well if you count his two pre- season fights he's got one left then and that's all it would take for him to convince Lucic to stay away

I think most know why he had low fight totals last year.

Lucic is tougher than some give him credit for and has good power but I don't think he wants to bang with the real big HWs. Ya he dropped Carkner but Carkner fought stupid and tried to throw lefts vs. Lucics right and got dropped!

I'll bet you $1000 McGrattan has more fights this season than Lucic.

Gratts would win about 2/3 vs. Lucic. The other could go as a draw, or Lucic could sneak in a win.

Friends fight all the time. It is not uncommon whatsoever. Thornton-Barch, Parros-Westgarth....if anything friends don't mind fighting one another.

McGrattan is a FIGHTER, he likes to fight... Doesn't mind punching guys hard in the face... Or getting punched and possibly injured, really... That's a certain kind of dude.... Looch is big and mean and CAN fight, sure... But he likes to score and play and join a rush maybe... I would suggest he doesn't have a passion for skill involved in being a FIGHTER... Know what I mean...

McGrattan got there to fight and to beat guys up... He is on record saying he really likes to fight...Looch made it to the Show because of the whole package.

I think it is a pretty easy decision... 98/100 Looch is big and is going to get lucky a couple of times

But Lucic has Gregorys Daddys bumboys in the striped jerseys babysitting him. Ever notice how quick the linesmen jump in when it looks like a Bruin is going to take a beating.
Lucic gets away with more gloved sucker punches then the rest of the league combined. Gregory and Milan must be best buddies...
