Let's never forget one thing....nobody battled harder to achieve greatness as a Bruin than Tim Thomas did. He was never handed anything by anyone, and had to prove the doubters wrong at every level. If/when my son asks me about his career, I'll make sure he understands that TT proved that as long as you believe you're good enough, then it doesn't matter what everyone else says about you.
I beg to differ, I think nobody battled as hard as Terry O'Reilly to achieve greatness as a Bruin.

Tim Thomas was probably the better player but O'Reilly was the guy who worked himself from being a goon to being a top 10 scorer and heart and soul of the Bruins.

Let's not forget that.

Thomas was great, I am not saying that in any kind of attempt to downplay him, I will never forget what Thomas did for the Bruins.
