    Re: Top 5 favorite bruins of all time

    Orr is always number 1, always will be.
    Bourque though is the close second. Quiet stateman of hockey.
    Neely was the persona of what a Bruin should be, a refined O'Reilly if you will.
    Cheesy, saw him when I was a kid, what a gamer, did not care of stats just Ws.
    Bergeron, sorry  Bs fans he is the reincarnation of Jean Beliveau, a great player, quiet but hidden intense demeanor, the antithesis of all the car burning Montreal fans in Quebec.  Polished! A Bruin!

    Honorable mention:  Albeit very short period of time Normand Leveille, he was gong to be a force, loved his checks... a small guy who could level people with his shoulder checks. He had a sense of the game!

    Ok, for younger fans, Tuuka Rask has the right demeanor.  Quiet and solid in net with the ocassional nutty goaltender reaction to keep opposing players on edge.  Use your stick, ala Billy Smith, Tuuka!

    Only 5?

    I'm thinking:

    Derek Sanderson
    Bobby Orr
    Cam Neely
    Ray Bourque
    John 'Pie' McKenzie 


    Honourable mention to Jacques Plante for the 8 games he gave the Bruins. 

    My list will probably change by tomorrow.
