Jim "King Kong" Cummins was one of the most under-rated fighters in the NHL. He is very tough and all Heart. I've not seen too many fighters more willing to go someone simply to protect their teammates. Jim Cummins comes from the old-school: You hit me and I'll hit you back; I'll hit you and you hit me back. Whoever goes down first is the loser. Jimmy doesn't win them all but his arms move like pistons when he gets them loose.

Acquired by Detroit Red Wings with Kevin Miller & Dennis Vial, for Joey Kocur and Per Djoos. Teams approaching Detroit about a possible trade always want to talk about Cummins.
