Top 10 Forwards in Boston Bruins History: #3

Thanks to everyone for voting in Poll #2, the winner was Milt Schmidt.

Time now for Poll #3 in which I added Cooney Weiland, if you wish to see me add someone let me know.

Here's a list of all the forwards in Boston Bruins history:

In Poll 3 I voted for Johnny Bucyk.

Here are the results so far:

1) Phil Esposito
2) Milt Schmidt

Also keep in mind you are voting for a player based upon their time with the team in ?, not the overall sum of their careers.

Definitely Johnny Bucyk. 2nd all-time in franchise points and assists (to Ray Bourque), was the all-time points leader at left wing when he retired, 1st ballot HOFer, etc.

THN had him at #45 all-time on their 1998 Top 100 list, and while I think that's high, he's a definite contender for inclusion on a Top 100 list.

Bill Cowley won two Hart Trophies with the Bruins and was the first NHL player to win a scoring title on assists alone.

I'd be surprised that I was only the second vote for him, except most posters here probably never heard of him.

He's going to be my next vote, I think the sum of Bucyk's career with the Bruins is better.

Quoted for significance. This guy won two Hart Trophies with the Bruins. If my math is right, and it never is, only 17 players have won more than one Hart. Bill Cowley is the correct choice.

Let's remember though, Cowley's Hart trophies (and especially his 2nd Hart and 1st place finish in the scoring race) were during the war years, and so they are more difficult to take at face value. It's somewhat telling that he wasn't elected to the Hall of Fame until 20 years after he retired.

That's not to suggest he doesn't merit consideration (I'm voting for him next round, he's certainly ahead of the likes of Oates and Neely) but I think Bucyk's career is more valuable.
