being a Bruin is something special, and it is why this team as a sum is much greater than the simple addition of the skills of it's parts, the Bruins are a team, and what it means for all on the team to be a Bruin is what sets them apart from the rest

I am proud to be a fan of this team, whereas I see other fanbases and teams that have supposed superstars but they are just a collection of individuals with no overall identity to the group

this is the greatness of the Bruins and summed up symbolically by the logo, some are worthy, but just having a set of skills doesn't make one worthy, even if they are a so-called superstar
Ask a fan of the other 29 teams what they think of Lucic and Marchand, and some of their on ice activities through the years...

We took a very un-Bruinlike Nathan Horton and made him into a Bruin...we could do the same with anyone, if Chiarelli decided to go that route. I think the brass likes Subban. It's not like it's Ott, Cooke or Kaleta.
