    because of the nature of the position he plays, i'll go with TIM THOMAS.
    just ask luongo how important it is to keep pucks out of the net.
    congrats to the BRUINS!
    BOSTON, definitely TITLE TOWN, USA!
    HEY, NYC, how do you like those apples?

    Difficult to choose one out of the list that you have.  All were very clutch during the playoffs for their team.  Although, I would add Schilling to this list.

    BILL RUSSELL
    He was better than any Celtic player player past present and future.
    There is a picture of Bird, Williams and Orr as the Greatest Boston Legends. Bill Russell was greater than Bird and I like Bird.

    Vinatieri, he doesn't hit that rock for a FG v. Raiders, there is no 01 SB. He doesn't drill a 47-yarder at the buzzer, there is no Pats dynasty. He had two chances to fail and no one would have begrudged him. Faced both the elements and the pressure of a SB audience. Then he does an encore v. Carolina....

    Add Bill Russell and Bobby Orr to the list and circle the entire list. Too many great moments and great players to single out one.

    Come on! This guy scored 76 goals a season in an era when scoring 30 was a "good" season and scoring 40 was a "great" season....Phil Esposito.

    For me to choose a clutch player he would have to have also let his team to a championship or two.  It would be between Papi, Brady or Bird.  I would have to go with Bird being more consistently clutch by a very slight margin over Brady.

    Not even close - Larry Bird.


    As far as recent baseball players go, Beckett.  Beckett in the post season is money.

    Russell...11 titles in 13 year; not even close...probably the best in the history of all sports including Pele (he won an unprecedented 3 World Cups). Back to (provincial) Beantown: Larry had 3, Brady 3, Papi 2, Bobby Orr 2, Tim Thomas 1. But of performances I've seen, Timmy might have been the best; certainly the best playoff goaltending since Kenny Dryden skunked the Bruins.
