Build an All-Time Bruins Roster for $20 (aka Jeremy Jacobs' Favorite Post)

Will you make these guys linemates? - Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

By now you've no doubt seen Matthew Henderson's "build a hockey roster for $20."

While a fun game, you could pretty much assemble any roster and it'd be great considering the talent available. It's a game that deserves a bit more thought being put into it so let's make it more challenging.

With 90 years of hockey in the books, we thought you could assemble a pretty decent lineup using Bruins players alone. Though not stacked enough to have Mike Bossy for $2 (but look at that d), the B's have quite a pool of players to select from.

Judging only their time in Boston, we ranked who we thought were the best players at every position (top 10 for defense, five for the rest) with a minimum of 300 games played and priced each accordingly.

Give it a shot. What lineup did  you come up with for $20?
