    Great question, I think we'd all have different answers since most of us are different ages.

    When I see/hear of teams different players come to mind:

    Boston: Bourque/Neely Orr Esposito

    Montreal: Roy

    Quebec: Goulet/P. Stastny Nolan, Forsberg

    Hartford: Sylvain Turgeon/Brass Bonanza Francis, Dineen

    Detroit: Yzerman Federov Osgood Lidstrom Shanahan Coffey

    Toronto: Sundin/Tugnutt (that one game, and the fact it's always on NESN) Gilmour

    Chicago: Belfour + Roenick, Larmer Chelios

    Flames: Vernon Fleury

    Canucks: Bure + Linden Mogilny

    Jets: Hawerchuk Selanne

    Sabres: Barrasso/Andreychuk, and I always think of Foligno jumping and for some reason the ice inside of the net being painted yellow.  Lafontaine Hasek

    Oilers: Gretzky

    Kings: Gretzky

    North Stars: Modano Broten, McRae

    Blues: Federko Hull, Sutter Curtis Joseph

    Penguins: Mario Jagr Francis

    Devils: Brodeur + Stevens

    Rangers: Richter + Graves, Leetch Messier


    Fliers: Lindros, Leclaire, Hextall, Brind'Amour


    Capitals: Ovechkin, Bondra

     



    Added a few others in bold and italics.

    I don't think there really is one for the current Bruins, and I think that's a good thing.

    If it's the overall face of the franchise, it's #4 Bobby Orr hands down. Maybe the most recognizable face in the history of hockey with the possible exception of Gretzky.

    Currently playing, Chara is the face of the franchise (he is big, he is bad, and he is a Bruin), Bergeron is the heart of the franchise. Thornton is the knuckles of the franchise, Marchand is the nose of the organization, and apparently Seguin is the naughty parts of the franchise.

    LOL seo. Lucic has to be part of the nose grouping.

    I like to think of Jean Ratelle as a Bruin

    Does anyone else think of Gilles Perrault when they think of the Sabres

    When I think of the Sabres I think of Dave Andreychuk for some reason

    Now you're just pulling names out of a hat.

    Flyers has to be Clarke, Clarke, Clarke - then Parent, Barber, Leach, Howe, Hextall.  For some reason, Dornhoeffer.

    Sportsnet mag recently put out a top 30 Laffs of all time - and boy is it sad.  Bruin top 30 might be amusing to construct.

    One thing is for sure most picks are broken down by the era or decade the poster really started to follow hockey. My face for the Bruins when I really started to get into following, Boston Middleton-Ratelle-Park but with research- Schmidt just stands out too much for me.

    Hartford: Francis/Dineen

    Detroit: Yzerman/Probert

    Toronto: Sittler/Salming/Palmateer

    Chicago: Savard/Wilson/ Tony O'

    Flames: MacDonald/McInnis

    Canucks: Bure/King Richard/ Smyl/Gradin

    Jets: Hawerchuk/Selanne

    Sabres: Perrault/Martin/Roberts/Edwards/Sauve

    Oilers: Gretzky/Messier

    Kings: Gretzky/Dionne/Goring/Taylor/Vachon

    Those are the funniest or most notorious players which immediately come to mind.

    I remember Korab on a PP and went to pass to the other point - and the puck went over the glass.  Too much time in the weight room.

    Magnuson, how can you think about him without thinking of him losing every fight he was ever in.  Even Esposito slapped him out.

    And Rod Gilbert (as was Bobby Scmautz) couldn't resist winding up and taking a slap shot no matter when or where.
