Top Bruins enforcers through the years
Cam Neely was so much more than a fighter, of course. Skilled and creative, tough and aggressive, he was to many the ideal Bruin, and he was universally admired by fans. He scored from 36 to 55 goals in each of his first five seasons during his 10 years in Boston, and in each of his first four seasons here collected at least 117 penalty minutes. Neely became a more selective fighter as he blossomed into superstardom, but he could still throw around his fists with just about anyone when the moment called for it. And his pummeling of cowering nemesis Ulf Samuelsson remains one of the most cathartic moments of revenge in Bruins history.
