With the departure of Shawn Thornton, the Bruins no longer have an enforcer on their roster.
With the NHL trying to move away from the fighting culture, Kevin Paul Dupont joined Arbella Early Edition to discuss the future of enforcers around the league.
"They're going to be around," said Dupont. "It's not going to end overnight… you are slowly going to see fewer and fewer of these guys whose main job is to go out there and beat people up."
"I do like fighting. Real fighting, organic fighting, I can tolerate that. It's the staged stuff, the nonsense stuff, the strategy fighting that drives me crazy. If it's just two guys who hate each other, who doesn't like that?"
