While it has been more than two years since Mike O'Connell stood at the helm of the Bruins, the ex-GM's moves still play a significant part in the team's current success.

Here's a look at the current 20-man lineup and which GM (O'Connell, Harry Sinden, Jeff Gorton, Peter Chiarelli) was in charge when each player was brought to Boston.

Lucic/Gorton
Savard/Gorton
Kessel/Gorton
Axelsson/Sinden
Bergeron/O'Connell
Ryder/Chiarelli
Wheeler/Chiarelli
Krejci/O'Connell
Kobasew/Chiarelli
Nokelainen/Chiarelli
Yelle/Chiarelli
Thornton/Chiarelli
Chara/Gorton
Ward/Chiarelli
Hunwick/O'Connell
Wideman/Chiarelli
Stuart/O'Connell
Hnidy/Chiarelli
Thomas/O'Connell
Fernandez/Chiarelli

  • O'Connell was fired on March 25, 2006, and replaced by Gorton as interim GM.

  • While Chiarelli was hired on May 26, 2006, he did not officially assume his position until July 8, 2006. Gorton served as interim GM for the 2006 draft, when the Bruins selected Phil Kessel and Milan Lucic, and for the opening of free agency, when the club signed Zdeno Chara and Marc Savard.

    Chiarelli: 10
    O'Connell: 5
    Gorton: 4
    Sinden: 1
