  1. Wayne Gretzky
  2. Bobby Orr
  3. Mario Lemieux
  4. Gordie Howe
  5. Maurice Richard

Howe could easily be number 3 and deservedly so.  Each of these guys revolutionized the game when they played.

I can't fault this list... I respect your players in it.

...except, of course, Orr is god, and hence is #1

If the medical advances of today existed in his day as well as the better equipment etc he would have been number one even though I am a diehard Habs fan and saying anything good about a Bruin is anathema to me I bow down to how good he was despite being younger and less analytical then.

Bruins lose another Defenseman to injury.


from nesn.com:

The Boston Bruins’ blue line can’t catch a break. 

B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday that defenseman Torey Krug will miss two to three weeks with a broken finger. Krug was slashed during the third period of Tuesday night’s 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild. His last shift ended at 18:16 of the third period. Boston already is without captain and No. 1 defenseman Zdeno Chara, who suffered a PCL tear in his left knee last Thursday. 

In the mix to replace Krug are defensemen Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky, who have been recalled from the AHL’s Providence Bruins and will join the team for Wednesday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena. 

Morrow is an offensive defenseman who could play a role similar to Krug’s. The former first-round draft pick has good playmaking skills, can quarterback a power play and is an excellent skater. He has never appeared in an NHL game, but he has been one of Providence’s best defensemen this season. 

Warsofsky and/or Morrow also could play if the Bruins decide to bench Matt Bartkowski. He has struggled mightily this season with poor puck management and failures in defensive zone coverage, and he was on the ice for three of Minnesota’s four goals Tuesday night.

Fuck, this guy is brittle. He fell.......in practice.


COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Toronto Maple Leafs will be without left wing Joffrey Lupul, who broke a bone in his right hand in a fall at practice Thursday.

The team announced the injury shortly before the start of Friday night's game at Columbus.

Lupul, who has two goals and an assist in nine games this season, is out indefinitely, according to a post on the team's Twitter account.

Lupul, 31, has 186 goals and 202 assists in 609 games. He was third on the Maple Leafs last season with 22 goals.

To take his roster spot, the Leafs have recalled center Sam Carrick from their American Hockey League affiliate. Carrick could make his NHL debut Saturday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 22-year-old fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft had an impressive training camp before being assigned to the minors.

NEW YORK -- Vancouver Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows has been suspended for three games without pay by the NHL for his late, illegal check to the head of Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin.

Burrows slammed into Emelin at 8:23 of the second period of the Canucks' 3-2 overtime victory over the Canadiens on Thursday night. Emelin left after the hit, but returned later in the game.

Under the terms of the NHL's collective bargaining agreement and, based on his average annual salary, Burrows will forfeit $72,580.65. The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug will miss two to three weeks after he suffered a broken finger during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild at TD Garden.

As a result, the Bruins have recalled defensemen Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky from Providence of the AHL, and both will practice with the team Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena.

The Bruins are already without defensemen Zdeno Chara (knee) and Kevan Miller (shoulder). Morrow was recalled to Boston last Friday, was a healthy scratch for one game and assigned to Providence on Sunday. He's played in seven games for the P-Bruins, with one goal and one assist.

This is the first recall of the season for Warsofsky. He's played in seven games for the P-Bruins this season. He played in six games for the Bruins last season.

New York Rangers defenseman John Moore has been suspended five games for his hit on Minnesota Wild center Erik Haula on Monday night, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced.

Moore received a match penalty after a vicious elbow to the head that forced Haula from the game (Haula did not play Tuesday, either). Moore was tossed from the Rangers' 5-4 win Monday with a match penalty at 7:12 into the second period.

Moore had an in-person hearing, which allows the league's disciplinary arm to dish out a punishment of six games or more. Since he only received five, the suspension is not subject to appeal by a neutral arbitrator.

The 23-year-old defenseman is a repeat offender -- he was banned two games following a hit on Dale Weise in the Eastern Conference finals against the Montreal Canadiens last spring -- and will forfeit $51,859.75, which will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Moore's teammate Chris Kreider also was ejected from Monday's stunning comeback win against the Wild following a dangerous hit against Jonas Brodin, but he avoided any supplementary discipline.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to a four-year, $23 million contract extension.

The deal - which includes a no-movement clause and a limited no-trade clause - begins next season and runs through the 2018-19 campaign with an average annual value of $5.75 million.

"I believe in Marc-Andre Fleury, as the team does," said Penguins GM Jim Rutherford in a statement. "He's won before and he will win again. We're very pleased to have him signed long term."

Fleury, 29, has a 7-2 record, 1.89 goals-against average, .931 save percentage and a league-leading three shutouts in nine starts this season.

A 2009 Stanley Cup champion, he is the Penguins all-time regular-season leader in wins (295), games played (540) and shutouts (31). His 52 postseason wins are second only to Tom Barrasso (56) in club history, while his eight playoff shutouts are a record. His 52 playoff wins are the most among active NHL goalies.

Now that he's signed his new deal Fleury will return to being an average NHL Goalie who is helped greatly by playing behind one of the league's best offensive teams.

Goaltending has been kind of sketchy this year in the sense that many of the goaltenders who were expected to maybe struggle are at the top and the goaltenders who were expected to expel are kind of all over the place.

The top 10 GAA
  1. Jake Allen 1.00
  2. Corey Crawford 1.53
  3. Frederik Andersen 1.60
  4. Niklas Svedberg 1.67
  5. Darcy Keumper 1.77
  6. Pekka Rinne 1.88
  7. Marc-Andre Fleury 1.89
  8. Jonas Hiller 1.96
  9. Jimmy Howard 1.96
  10. Ondrej Pavelec 2.01

Then you've got these guys:
11. Jonathan Quick 2.0322. Tukka Rask 2.5327. Cory Schneider 2.6829. Semyon Varlamov 2.7530. Sergei Bobrovsky 2.8132. Henrik Lundquist 2.8533. Kari Lehtonen 2.9334. Carey Price 2.9438. Steve Mason 3.1744. Mike Smith 3.63

Some of these will straighten out over time but it's food for thought.
