    Re: Favorite B's over the years

    After my 3 least favorite, it kind of fell off a cliff as I don't remember the players I didn't like (block it out, block it out!). When the NHL lockout occurred, I was on strike from hockey so didn't know Raycroft tried to play. And for some reason, I never liked Iafrate and didn't like it when he came to the Bs.

    In Response to Re: Favorite B's over the years : How are Middleton and Oates not in the HOF?  Especially Oates.  I am not sure I saw a better passer other than Gretzky.  Oates was that good. And the intelligence, great defense and always in the right place at the right time.  Not to mention, he had this knack of absorbing body checks, where he was hard to hit. In my lifetime, I am not sure I saw a smarter Bruins player.

    It is perhaps easy, though unfortunate, to forget these two when talking about the HOF. Neither won any individual awards or cups and they were overshadowed by the superstars of their era.

    I am not saying it is fair, just anderstandable....

    I had no idea Oates was NOT in the HOF...I always just assumed he was. Ridiculous. Even before coming to the B's you'd think his "Hull & Oates" career would be enough. That's just stupid that he isn't there. Excellent point also about his being able to absorb checks. Not a big guy at all, not a hitter, not the fastest skater by any means, but VERY hard to knock off the puck. Helluvaplayer.

    Nifty? I don't know why. Maybe he didn;'t  have the stats? I really can't figure out the HOF criteria in hockey. All I know is Nifty made some of the sickest moves I've ever seen on ice, and was a total joy to watch.

    In Response to Re: Favorite B's over the years:
    Clark Gilles is in the HOF, for example.  Many players are in the HOF who are more borderline than Rick Middleton. Middleton was basically a top tier winger who was as lethal as any winger of that era. Check his career numbers. He has 400+ goals for crying out loud. Barring injuries, he was a bona fide 30 goal scorer+ every year. "In 1987-88 Middleton played his last of his twelve seasons with the Bruins. He retired from the game after recording 448 goals, 540 assists for 988 in 1005 games. " http://www.legendsofhockey.net/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/SearchPlayer.jsp?player=13727 Good piece here on the travesty that is Oates not being in the HOF: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/409223-adam-oates-the-best-player-who-wont-make-the-hall-of-fame

    I'm a pretty big Bruins fans, and I had no idea Middleton was quite this good.  I was always him during Street Hockey, so I definitely liked him but that's almost a point a game, I just don't remember that volume of production.  Good post BB.
