Above. But really, so many. We've always had an abundance of this kind, which warms the cockles (what are cockles?) of my heart.

One might say Terrence Joseph James O'Reilly is the quintessential exemplar of same, and the ultimate Bruin.

It's strange but Ed Westfall is identified with the Isles these days

Pretty close to who I liked....add Brent Hughes, Johnny McKenzie, Brian Rolston, Mike Knuble, Don Awrey, Rob DiMaio, Andre Savage, Lyndon Byers, Darren Van Impe and the great Hawgie Hockey.

How much respect do you think we should give him ???? Should we be asking for his number to be retired ???? Does anybody even know what number he wore ????

Randy Burridge.
Definitely Keith Crowder.
Tim Taylor.
Seidenberg fits the criteria.
So does Sean Thornton.

I always had a soft spot for tough stay at home Dmen that fight.

Adam McQuaid is working on it. If he could sort out the issues he occasionally has with his decision making with the puck, he could be a real diamond in the rough. As it is, he's an excellent grinding D who you tend to notice doing a lot of subtle things right.

That too. I suppose Mark Stuart should get some mention in a thread like this too.

I'm not sure out defense is as solid as it is without Johnny Boychuk. He's easy to underestimate because when you think about it Boychuk really doesn't fight all that much, and while he delivers some pretty crushing hits they're few and far between, making him an easy guy to forget about. But the kind of defenseman he is, mostly a stay at home type other than the shot, that's kind of what you want him to be. His size, strength and durability create a good bulwark and he's shown the ability to be effective with a number of different defensive partners. He'll have the odd bad night, especially against a speed team, but the man is pretty steady and the positives way outweigh the negatives with the guy.

Really liked Bobby Joyce in his short time.... Dean Chynoweth was another guy....Loved Ken Belanger...True lunatic on the ice who intimidated...Brent Hughes deserves some props for taking beating after beating as well standing up for his 'mates. Loved Dave Reid and Dave Poulin...Liked Thelven and Thelin....

I always really liked Boynton. He was as unheralded of a top-pairing guy as you could have. Axelsson as well; pretty much everyone loved him.

Loved Nick Boynton. He was very outspoken and said things that needed to be said.
I liked his attitude and toughness. Nick had diabetes and did much for other folks who suffered the same.

PJ was a wonderful Bruin. He wore the black and gold for many years and was proud to be a Bruin. I thought the B's should have done something for him in the end. I would love to see hiim and Muzz attend a B's game (if we ever have one again )

It is wonderful to see so much love for PJ Axelsson

#11 is #1 with me [yeah like that is a surprise ]

I also was a fan of Bobby Carpenter, Dave Poulin, Steve Leach & Tim Taylor back in the day.

Don McKenney and Rick Middleton. Both are players who played well without the post goal antics and who never got the acclaim they deserved.

Okay, last bit from me: Tim Taylor and his face-offs, the wonderfully rounded two way play & leadership of Dave Poulin, home town Bobby Carpenter.

Here's one we all missed: Gary Galley. A great favorite!

Rob DiMaio for sure...
PJ Stock has a special place also. Both made some horrible teams a little more fun to watch

Not sure if Brad Park qualifies, but I'll never forget his Game 7 winner against Buffalo. Sheer bedlam broke out after that.

The Barry Pederson-Nifty Middleton combo was lethal for a few years, sometimes forgotten

Jonathan was tops for heart and soul, Jay Miller fought them all.

Holy Whatever, Batman, I was there at the time & don't remember Ken Baumgartner as a B. I suppose this speaks to that awful era.

Ugh.

GahdenRinkRat would say PJ too. She isn't on the board much right now but I can say for sure she would cast a vote for Axe. . He is a hard player to dislike.
