The Boston Bruins are an incredibly old franchise rich with great history. Their 2023-24 season is going to be a celebration of 100 years of Bruins hockey.
Their centennial season is going to be a year-long party as they remember and honor those great moments throughout franchise history.
It will be a season that sees them honor players, staff, and all sorts of different times over the last 100 years.
Part of this celebration is the team naming the 100 greatest players in the history of the franchise. You can see those 100 names in this post:
There are plenty of notable names on here as they are considered to be the 100 greatest Bruins of all time.
Clearly, the Boston Bruins have a history loaded with great players.
Of course, you have some of the greats from the recent Bruins run of dominance like Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara, David Krejci, Dennis Seidenberg, Torey Krug, and Tuukka Rask.
There are even a few current Bruins on there like Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, Milan Lucic, and Charlie McAvoy. What an honor that must be for them.
A few players that you forgot played for the Bruins even made the cut like Phil Kessel and Joe Thornton. Their current GM, Don Sweeney, also made the list.
Obviously, you have some old-school legends as well like Raymond Bourque, Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, and Milt Schmidt.
Willie O’Ree, the man who broke the NHL’s color barrier, also made the list as he should. Memories like that changed the league for the better forever.
It is incredible to see a team put out a list like this. It really takes you through Boston Bruins history through these names.
There have been many amazing eras in team history and this list is proof of that. There are Stanley Cups, Norris Trophies, tons of points, and lots of winnings.
This upcoming season could be a challenging one for them. There are some big changes being made as they move into yet another era but this centennial celebration could motivate them.
It is going to be very fun to see what else they come up with to help them revisit these memories during the year. The Bruins may not be the best team in NHL history this year as they were last year but they will be very entertaining in every way.
