Michael Ryder shows up at the right time. It's more than anyone on the Ryderless Bruins did the following year. Duly noted that correlation and causation are two different things. Nonetheless, a guy who shows up and performs his best at the most important times is priceless.

I could never really get mad at players because they weren't that good or at the end of the line, that was more on the GM. I only ever detested two players that played on the Bruins, Chris Nilan and "the Rat" I hated how they played the game and just could never cheer for them.

Well it wasn't priceless.. he cost use $12 million dollars.. All his "great" playoff performances didn't add up to it. Also with his pretty much lackluster play didn't make me feel any better. But he scores what 35 goals on a team that had a different system, and everyone wanted him back.

No worries, he proved his point last year and will revert back to what he was here his second year whenever they start playing again.

Plett was at the end of his career but he brought toughness and leadership to the dressing room. That Bruins team [87-88] was one fun team to watch. The playoffs were awesome. We beat Buffalo in 6.Montreal in 5.New Jersey in 7 and of course we lost to Edmonton in 4 straight. Sorry bud just do not agree with you putting my boy Willie on here.

I'm with you on the Rat. didn't like it when we got him, and felt dirty whenever i cheered on a goal by him.

Nilan is a bit more complicated. Yes, he is a hab through and through and it felt like he was a double agent the whole time he was with us, however, he was always true to the unofficial Bruins motto - "you started something? fine. Finish what you started." Knuckles always finished what he started, and I have to respect that.

Dave Silk: Thayer Academy, BU, 1980 US Olympian. Yep, the local boys always blossom when they play close to home. Err, oh wait.....

Morris Lukowich: Only 28 years old when Boston acquired him, 4 time 30 goal scorer, yep, he's going to be the left wing answer finally.

I'm sure you're secretly a hater, since you said something honest and accurate about the guy.

Branbo. Man, those were lean times for a Bruins fan.

To your point, if I recall correctly, he bulked up too much that offseason and it really effected his game. Wasn't the fastest guy to begin with and the added mass just slowed him down.

I remember reading that he was putting the weight on to up his net front game. Sounds like a good plan given that the guy had a nice shot. Didnt work out. I think he bounced around some and then didnt he end up being a very productive player in the KHL?

He always looked great with wheeler when they use to take turns going offsides.

McSorley - that incident was one of, if not the, low point of my being a Bruins fan.
