Who do you think was the craziest Leaf you can remember? My vote goes to Paul Higgins. He was a Leaf goon from 81 to 83 (only appeared in 25 games). Higgins would do anything when he was on the ice. Stick in the face, blindside elbow to the head, etc. He would start fights at the end of periods because he had not been on the ice  in the game.

I don't remember Higgins but I was a bit young for that.

Kordic was the craziest I remember.

Tucker was a pretty wild child on the ice most nights.

Yeah, Tucker was crazed some nights... Kordic was messed up, which made him crazy. I think I give it to Tucker, as he was just naturally crazy! LOL

Great point on the "Natural" part, and Zanzibar's note on the bench attack. one of the best moments ever. :D

I actually remember Higgins. He was pretty careless

I am going to say Al Iafrate.  Can't put my finger on why, I just have this sense that he was a little bit crazy in his day, but, if one of my coworkers stole my wife, I might be too.

Andrew Raycroft.  He never looked the camera in the eye.  He also never admitted that maybe he shouldn't be playing goal.

There was a year when Iafrate was in St Catharines for the Blue and White game. (The St Catharines Saints were the AHL farm team for the Leafs then.) Iafrate got arrested for breaking street lights by throwing rocks at them. The next night at the game I was with friends sitting in the first row behind the glass during warm-up. Iafrate took a slapshot that was deflected up near the roof. One of our party yelled "Hey Al, watch out for the lights!". Iafrate got a huge smile on his face and nodded to us. He took it well.

Like a few others, the first thing I thought of was Tucker taking on the Ottawa Senators bench. (But really, outside of Neil and Chara they were all pansies  ;D) so maybe it wasn't that crazy.

How about when he tells people, "Watch your Knees!" And then proceeds to take out people's knees?
