The Best Boston Bruins Lineup of All Time
A day late and a dollar short. That's my life in a nutshell. But, I have composed the greatest Boston Bruins lineup of all time.
When looking at an "Original Six" franchise, compiling a team with only 21 starting players is tough. Boston has a long history of great players, and numerous Hall of Famers.
LW: Johnny Bucyk
C: Phil Esposito
RW: Cam Neely
D: Ray Borque & Bobby Orr
(All Hall Of Famers here, folks—no surprise.)
Notable mentions: Derek Sanderson (C)
LW: Wayne Cashman
C: Milt Schmidt
RW: Rick "Nifty" Middleton
D: Brad Park & Ed "Shadow" Westfall
Notable mentions: Joe Thornton (C) Ken Hodge (W) Zdeno Chara (D)
LW: Charlie Simmer
C: Petr McNab
RW: Brian Rolston
D: Don Sweeney & Glen Wesley
Notable mentions: Adam Oates (C) Craig Janney (C) Bob Joyce (W) Joe Juneau
LW: Lyndon Byers
C: P.J. Stock
RW: Terry O'Rielly
D: Lionel Hitchman & Eddie Shore
Notable mentions: Kenny Linesman (C) Jay Miller (W) Mike Milbury (D)
Notable mentions: Gerry Cheevers, Bill Ranford, Eddie Johnson & Terry Sawchuk
Notable mention: Pat Burns
In my 30 years of existence, I have yet to see a better line that Janney-Joyce-Neely in real-life. Their 1988-89 season was epic. A line that combined a total of 71 goals, 115 assists and 186 regular-season points en route to the playoffs. The Bruins lost a nail-biter, first-round playoff to the Montreal Canadiens in a best-of-five series, three games to two. All games were decided by only one goal.
Terry O'Reilly was the coach of that team, preceded by Mike Milbury.
And I will put my fourth line against any enforcer teams out there.
