The All-Boston Team: Summer Project

Everyone knows that a team made up of Boston Bruins All-time players would go 82-0-0, win the All-Star game 67-1 (they'd pull the goalie for the third period to make it fair), and sweep every round of the Stanley Cup Finals with 16 shutouts. Depending on the coach, they'd go either 5% or 100% on the PP and 100% on the penalty kill. So the question remains; what is the roster of this amazing team? After the invisible jump, we discuss how to attack this summer project that will waste more time than shopping for sunblock at Wal-Mart

There's a handful of stone-cold locks: Orr, Bourque, Chara, Shore. Count them. Good Lord, our blue line is stacked and we're not even two paragraphs into this.

But that's not nearly as fun as arguing over arbitrary rules and dissecting who should go where (for the record: Chara with Shore, and a dozen roses to the widows of those playing against them). So let's get all of the technicalities out of the way. For example, would cup of Coffey or Leetching another season count as Bruins? Sure, they tossed on the spoked-B, but they were hardly Boston Bruins. So time length should be discussed. What about linemates? I'm all for mixing and matching timeframes (obviously), but would it be preferable to keep (say) Bucyk with Espo?

So have at it. Work out the rules. Or just dive right in and fight about Cheevers or Thomas. I can add a poll, or something.
