    Bruins Hunted

    With a lot of talk surrounding the Cooke hit on Savard and the Ulfie hit on Neely prior to this series.  It got me thinking about the Bruins who have been seriously hurt by cheap shots and if the same could be said about any Bruins players.  In addition to Savard & Neely, Bergeron getting crushed by Randy Jones, Horton ebing head hunted by Rome, and I have heard stories that even Orr had his knees targeted by the likes of the broadstreet bullies back in the day.  Maybe I am just a homer, but I can think of 3 "questionable" hits by Bruins players that have seriously hurt an opponent.  McSorley on Brashear, Chara on Pacioretty, and Kyle McLaren on Richard Zednick.  I am sure there are others, but has a Bruins player ever ended a career or seriously altered a players effectiveness, like what happened to Savard and Neely?  Because it feels like the Bruins are always on the receiving end.

    McSorley wasn't "questionable" - it was the most brutal high stick I've ever seen.

    For sure Red.  Should have separated that hit from the other 2.

    I don't know, i think Marty was aiming to tap him on the shoulder and missed, a hockey play gone bad as they say. Brashear should have fought him the second time and all would have been cool. Brashear should have had his helmet on tight and then the back of his head wouldn't have hit the ice. ;-]

    Watch it again (like I just did) I remember at the time people saying the same thing as you 50, but I still can't see how that was a tap that missed (and even it was, that's not a hockey play anyway - it would have been a high stick even he hit the shoulder) It's also in no way just the force of a tap. He smoked him.

    Not even a penalty let alone a hunting incident that ended in severe injury

    He sure did,and a player does have to have contol over his stick or the result is a penalty.I think Marty was very upset and had intentions to engage Brashear and really give him a stick chop to provoke him and then fight.It didn't happen that way and the result was really,really bad.Sad way for Marty's career to end, but he deserved what he got.

    I believe McSorley was aiming for the shoulder.  I followed his career pretty closely.  There was no reason for him to suddenly become a stick swinging crazyman.  If it were Chris Simon, I'd agree with the intent.  McSorley was certainly a badass brawler, but I don't recall him being dirty to the extent that he would be labeled a dirty player.

    I thought of Jonathan, but that was a one-on-one ash whoopin'.  Not sure what you are referring to with MacTavish?

    I'm with you & NAS, 50. There's absolutely NO WAY anyone will convince me that he wasn't aiming for the shoulder. He had no business having his stick that high to hit anyone for any reason, but he didn't blantantly aim for his head in that way.

    Not Jonathan vs. Bouchard.  Jonathan vs. the hunter.

    MacTavish vs. people who don't drive drunk

    Never knew about this one, not sure why?  I was six, but I would've thought I would have heard about it.  Learn something new every day.

    Yeah, Boucha was never the same after that,effectively ended his career.

    I didn't think you were going there.  I should have known better.  I don't know whether I should laugh or be disgusted?

    Eddie Shore- probably the most ruthless man the sport has ever seen. He was an absolute lunatic! 

    Teddy Green- Against Wayne Maky (I know Maky is spelled wrong, but apparently mak i is bad on BDC)  only thing was Green missed. Makyi didn't.

    Didn't Jonathan also hit someone while drunk, but they didn't die? I thought he served some time for it as well.

    Eddie Shore could have an entire book written about him just on his vicious attacks on opposing players at any given time.I have read quite a bit about him and aside from him being one of the greatest hockey players of his era, he was most sadistic,menacing,cruel and aggressive players of his time.An absolute animal who thrived on rough play and thuggery.Great player though and above all else established the B's reputation as a talented but tough team to play against.

    Good call, nite.  Shore on Ace Bailey is (according to all reports...it's not as if I watched it happen) one of the more brutal plays in NHL history.

    I agree with NAS that McSorley was trying to hit him on the shoulder. Either way, I think it pales in comparison to what old Dino did to Luke Richardson.
