What about Bourque, Neely, and Bird? Or are they before your time?
Bourque and Neely are my childhood favorites. Neely is the reason I fell in love with hockey and the Bruins in the first place. I guess they'd be in a different category. I was a little too young to see their entire careers and truly appreciate them.

That was an intense back-to-back set of power plays, but it definitely felt like the Bs were on thinner ice there, so to speak. So glad that I have a meeting starting in the last few minutes of this game...

That Neely's career got cut short is probably my biggest sports regret concerning a particular player. Wasn't enough of a basketball fan to feel the same way about Len Bias, but that kicked me in the teeth, too.

I fell in love with hockey while enrolled at BU '01-'05, and started following the Bruins regularly in 2008 or so. I don't have the connection to Orr that others do, and I'd totally put Bergeron as #1 on my Bruins fandom list without question.
