A pretty popular post around here is The 20 Biggest Goons in NHL History, which really is just a way of highlighting skaters with the most penalty minutes of all time. Hey they did other things, too. Like score.

Still, though, the most penalty minutes of them all? Pretty goonish, though admittedly an important and technically-useful facet of these guys’ games (tell that to the penalty-killers).

Now about the postseason…

Most of those 20 regular season career leaders are here, too (11), but there are still nine brooding interlopers and the rankings are jumbled. Of course, number of games has a lot to do with that…provided.
