Tough guys cause mixed emotions around the NHL. They are both feared and respected by opponents while bringing out intense devotion and hatred in fans.

Fighting has always been a part of the NHL since the league was founded nearly 100 years ago. In this article, we take a look back at the most feared fighter from each decade of the league's existence, starting with the 1920s.

Many of these decades were tough to call as there a number of top contenders. Feel free to comment as to who you think should have won the title in a particular decade and why.

I have included clips whenever possible so sit back and enjoy this look back at the most feared fighter from each decade in NHL history.
