One thought on “Top Five Bruins All-Time

  1. A great players. HOWEVER, where’s Eddie Shore? How can the original Big Bad Bruin not be on this list? Or, how about Tiny Thompson and Frank Brimsek, the 2 best goalies to ever wear the “B”? Dit Clapper?Cooney Weiland? Bill Crowley? Bill Quackenbush? Your headline says “Top Five Bruins All-Time” but except for Milt, you never went past the 60’s. The Bruins began in 1924 you know, there were a lot of great players in those 60 years you overlooked.
