Default Stu Grimson - Has he ever lost a fight?

Stu Grimson, The Grim Reaper, the greatest fighter in NHL history, every video I've seen of him, he always dominates his opponent. Has he ever lost a fight?

He's an announcer for the Predators TV games here in Nashville, does a good job. I admit I had no idea he was a bad ass, just doesn't come across as that on the tube.

thanks

Greatest fighter in NHL history? No, no, and no again.

Eh, that's probably the toughest opponent I've seen Grimson take on, but I wouldn't give either the victory. Tie for me.

Grim Reaper lost several fights.
Dave Brown broke his face in Calgary.
Basil McRae destroyed him once in rematch fight in same game in Minnesota.
Stu lost a lot early in career. But as years went on he got to be one of the better fighters.

Here is his fight card and reviews on some of his fights with wins and loses....

Grimson lost an awful lot while as a member of the Blackhawks. He and Peluso were known as the palooka twins. Neither were any good at anything useful.

Grimson became a little bit better with experience, but he still wasn't on any top level of goon like Probert or Kocur. Grimsons career is based on his mental breakdowns on the ice. Not his fists.

Grimson, like Rob Ray, got better with age. He lost a high percentage of his fights early in his career, his balance was terrible. But when he hit his prime he was a top dog for sure. Not an all-time top ten fighter, but for a long stretch he was top 5 in the NHL year after year. One of my all-time faves.

Greatest fighter with the shortest career award would go to Darcy Hordichuk.

My faces that I've seen in person...Grimson, Probert and Al Secord

He did have one of the all-time great nicknames in all of sports.

Bob Probert was the baddest mutha #@#@#@#@er ever

He never cared about getting hit cuz he would just pound opponents into the ice... And he would track down anybody that didn't get a big enough beating and give em another beat down just for the hell of it

Georges Laraque and Donald Brashear were the two best fighters I've ever seen. Honorable mention goes to Dan Cloutier for goalie fights.

Seriously? Greatest fighter in NHL history?

I like Grimson and he certainly could go with anybody but he's not even close to the greatest.

Probert, Domi, McSorley, Williams, Laraque, I don't even see Grim in the top 10 of the past 40 years.

Probert and Domi were the best two by far that I ever saw on a regular basis. And I watched a lot of hockey and a lot of Grimson.

Behn Wilson sure could chuck em and was a pretty damn good player on top of it. He rarely lost and was never on the receiving end of a one sider. Stan Johnathan might have gotten the best of him once but Behn came back in the end.

In my top five for sure.

For a few years the blues had a good 1-2 combo in twist and chase

Stu Grimson Fights
First of all, what an awesome site!! I had no idea it existed.

Second, I am sure I saw him fight McSorley a few times. I saw a lot of games in the mid 90's between the Ducks and Kings. Good times!

Third, wait a second, Stu lost to Rob DiMaio??? He had 7" and 40 pounds on him. That would be a good video to look for.

Simon was a beast before he came to dc and got shoulder surgery. He could hang with anyone and defeat most.

Oh and if you ever want to see one of the best fights in history look up Stephen peat vs pj stock. Peat was an insane fighter but not much of a hockey player so he didn't last long. I watched him knock out Mel angelstad at capitals training camp. Yes training camp lol both were on the same team. I also saw Simon fight kolzig at a practice. Kolzig hung really well before it was broken up.
