    Posted by btownbliss[/QUOTE]


    I had season tickets to the Worcester Icecats in the mid 90's.  Jon Casey got sent down for a conditioning stint after coming off the IR, which luckily happened to fall on autograph night.  I still have the few cards I had him sign around somewhere.

    What a work ethic in Burridge.  Don Sweeney in that same category and Gary Doak too.

    Re: Favorite B's over the years

    I am going to go a little non-popular/less obvious over some different eras, post 1970s (I don't remember the late 70s):

    Rick Middleton
    Stan Jonathan
    Peter McNab
    Keith Crowder
    Andy Moog
    Don Sweeney
    Garry Galley
    Dave Poulin
    Randy Burridge
    Adam Oates
    Dave Reid
    Rob Dimaio
    PJ Axelsson
    Byron Dafoe
    Brian Rolston


    Obviously, Bourque, Neely, etc, are the big names I could choose and obviously loved watching play, but I wanted to drop some names in of players who I really appreciated even if they weren't considered HOF players.

    Whenever the puck came at Jon Casey during the 1993/1994 season, I cringed.

    I don't know what it was about his style, but he always seemd to overplay the puck.

    His numbers look ok when you look back at them, but I had ZERO confidence in him in the playoffs.

    He seemed to live off his great college career at North Dakota and that classic run he had in '91 with Minny.

    Looks like Nevin didn't get the brains knocked out of him, even though he had almost 800 PIMs in just over 300 NHL games.  I wore #17 in high school because of him.  Loved the JOFA helmet he used to wear.

    Good catch. 800 pms, I guess he was not named "the kamikaze kid" for nothing. Was a first rounder too if I am recalling correctly...

    And yes it says he was a first round pick in the article you sourced...

    [QUOTE]I've been looking through the new book my Wife got me, Black and Gold - 4 Decades of the Boston Bruins in Phototgraphs. It's a picture book (insert jokes here) by the Team's Photog, Steve Babineau. It covers from early the 70s, when Orr had longer hair, so my era of players. So it got me thinking of who my favs were. Here's my list. Bobby  - No explaination necessary Reggie Lemelin - The goalie who did it. HE Beat Them! Cam Neely - Again no explaination necessary, but he used Pat Roy as his personal bytch goalie, and for that alone he gets my vote. 50 in 44 works too. Milan Lucic - I know this is an early pick, and he might not end up with his number raised to the Rafters, but I don't go for a beer when he's on the ice. Stan Jonathan - Just one of those things. After he dusted Moose Dupont, he made the list. I'm not going with an Honourable Mention List. You other made the Top 5 or didn't. Your turn.

    Boy does Wideman take an unfair beating here.  He was an 8th round pick for crying out loud.

    Nothing personal to Steve Heinze and Ted Donato, but those two will always be classic "he's a local guy so he's really a 1st or 2nd line player here in Boston and fill seats with their friends/relatives buying tickets" move by Jacobs.

    It's pathetic they were expected to be elite performers here. Ugh.

    Had plenty of talent but he was one of the most unfortunate draft choices ever made by Harry.  Was constantly breaking down, plenty of HOF talent behind him in the draft.

    You are right about this. When you look at the players that went after him you have to wonder, in hindsight, what could have been. Too bad about Kluzak's knees......
