In Response to #22's number : you left off some big names. just want to give the recognition... 1: LEMELIN Vachone & Peters, 13: GUERIN, 12: CAPTAIN CASHMAN 14: SANDERSON & MCTAVISH, 16: How can you leave off NIFFTY RICK MIDDLETON & PETER DORRIS, 17: MARQUART, 18: KIETH CROWDER WAS NO DEFENSEMAN, 22:PARK 25:KRUSHELNISKI 26:WESLEY 28: LARSON 35: MOOG, that is enough for now.

First off why do we care about what number the 22nd player in the draft wears...he won't even be a Bruin ;-). I know he meant the 2nd.
Secondly, to the original poster...since when do numbers get assigned by position in the NHL....except goalies?? Forwards and defensemen both wear numbers you claim belong to a defensemen.
Lastly, to 54BLITZER...Derek Sanderson wore 16.
If the number is not retired by the Bruins who cares who wore it in the past, the new kid is going to build his own legacy with it, or not!
However, with that said, I'll recognize some of the available numbers worn by players who actually won a cup for Boston...some posters here are likely too young to remember:
6 - Ted Green
10 - Rick Smith (also wore 23)
11 - Wayne 'Swoop' Carlton and Bill 'Shaky' Walton
12 - Wayne Cashman (was recognized)
14 - Garnet 'Ace' Bailey (RIP - 911)
16 - 'Turk' Sanderson
17 - Fred Stanfield and Stan Jonathon (later)
18 - 'Steady' Eddie Westfall
19 - Johnny 'Pie' McKenzie
20 - Dallas Smith
21 - Don Marcotte (hi also wore 29 in 1970)
24 - Bill Spears
25 - Gary Doak
26 - Don Awrey
27 - Reggie Leach (don't think he was on cup winner though)
30 - Gerry Cheevers
