Boxing Day Poll: Who is the best Bruins fighter of the last decade?

New, comments

With it being Boxing Day and all and since we are on the verge of closing out the decade, I thought we would take a look at some of the best Black & Gold pugilists of the aughts. Between the lockout and Mike Sullivan handcuffing his players, there is a bit of a gap between the early decade and the late decade, but there were still plenty of guys that could throw hands over the past 10 years. See Below for some clips and stats of the candidates (all stats from regular season 1999-2009) and the poll question.
