Muhammad Ali Would Be Formidable Matchup In His Prime for Milan Lucic, Zdeno Chara

Muhammad Ali turned 70 on Tuesday, and we decided to have some fun considering how The Greatest would have fared throwing hands with great NHL enforcers, past and present.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette put the question out to our Twitter followers, wondering if any NHL players would be able to hold their own with Ali if he had ever decided to lace up the skates and drop the gloves.

Check out the video to see what they had to say and let us know in the comments if we missed any fictional matchups you would’ve like to see.
