Always a debate on the Bruins board....but Neely usually gets the slight nod. (It's that rough n' ready thing). Middleton was an artisan....it's an apples and oranges thing.

In the 83 playoffs, he (17gms / 11g / 22 a) his CTR (17 gms / 14g / 18 a) and Bourque (17gms / 8g / 15a) almost singlehandedly put the Bruins into the finals but like every other playoff team during most of the 80's and early 90's, the depth was lacking or disappointing, (other than Park).

They lost to the last of the Islanders dynasty teams after yet another rough series v. the Sabres.
