Mhyres had substance abuse problems and darn near had a foot ripped off in an Atlanta Knights IHL game in his second season. Hockey-wise, he could've been out Bob Probert if he had stayed clean and healthy.

A brief TO in this thread for possibly the worst "fight" in organized hockey history

There's a difference between Jason Wiemer getting drunk off his butt every night underage and what Mhyres was doing.

Glad that Brantt seems to be clean these days. He could've been a good one.

Myhres at least wasn't serving drinks either.

His problem wasn't just the drinking. His problem stemmed from not completely understanding the english language....like the word "no" for instance.

You mean as in, "Here, take this germ-laden rolled-up currency I just had up my nostril, and suck this bitter powder deep into your sinuses! You'll go to jail, the hospital or the morgue."

"No."

Something like that?

pretty amazing, the self-hypnosis of "everybody else is doing it"

Jassen Cullimore was one of my all-time favorite Bolts, and I used to love it when he fought. He picked his spots well and always got the team fired up.

Probably that too, but the situation I'm referring to, hypothetically might have gone like this.

Guy: How you doin?
Girl: Fine
Guy: Mind if I put this there?
Girl: NO.

Loved when he fought to, because it ALWAYS had a purpose, especially liked his fight vs Suspendan Shanahan in 1999.

Enjoyed reading your list and comments. I guess my 3 favorites over the years would be Rudy, Rico and Roy with Gratton and Knopper being a close fourth and fifth.

Rudy bled a lot but had some classic battles during his time with the Bolts. Too bad Rico and Andre couldn't have had a little better control over their emotions when they played. I recall a game when Rico laid on solid check on someone and it just changed the whole complexion of the game in the Bolts favor.

Gratton as someone stated was mishandled. He had the talent but never fully evolved. I believe his best year was with Dino C. He was a willing and capable combatant but I think he lost his zest for it after a fight with Derrian Hatcher. Hatcher handled him pretty well in that fight.

Knopper would go with anyone, regardless of size but just a little too small to go with the real big boys. Considering all the "tough guys" that were watching SFY's back during his time with Detroit I don't understand his reluctance to have someone like that in Tampa.
