The biggest hitters in the East garnered some high quality discussion, so let's do it again.
As a sequel to the Eastern Conference biggest hitters, here we look at the five biggest hitters in the Western Conference.
The West used to be known more for its tic-tac-toe scoring plays and wide-open style. But, with the sport of hockey evolving and more talent moving coast-to-coast, the ability to level opponents has crossed conference lines also.
Here we take a look at the top five biggest hitters in the West. Enjoy these crushing blows.
Also, please comment anyone you feel should be included in a 16-player, playoff-formatted post, which will allow the readers to vote their favorite hitters along to the next round.
For example: 2) Shea Weber vs. 15) Zdeno Chara
3) Ryan Callahan vs. 14) Dustin Brown
Winners, based on reader-voted polls, will advance. This will continue for a round of eight, four and conclude with the final two players (regardless of conference) before we crown a reader's champion.
