The Three Stars of the Boston Bruins as selected by the President of Bruins Nation are:
1. Marc Savard
2. Patrice Bergeron
3. Tim Thomas
1. Marc Savard: Savard led the team in points (96, 9th in the league) and Assists (74, 3rd in the league). Even though he slipped a little when linemates Axelsson and Murray got injured, he was still the most valuable forward on the team. However, the one stat that jumped out at me was that he is the Only Bruin to play in all 82 games!
2. Patrice Bergeron: Bergeron was second on the team in points and assists (Behind Savard), he was also by far the most consistent player on the team. He played in 77 games and was almost a point per game center. Bergeron always led the plays that got goals for Bochenski, Sturm, and Brad Boyes when he was with us. Bergeron also led the team in Power Play goals with 14.
3. Tim Thomas: The 7th player award winner was the guy who was in net for 30 of the Bruins 35 wins. One fo the best in the shootout and in clutch situations, Thomas kept the Bruins in games that they had no business being in. Most fans, including myself, thought that this would be Toivonen's team, but Thomas proved all of us wrong. Thomas played in 65 games and recorded 1,796 saves.
Chara, who played in 80 games averaged 27:57 minutes per game (1st in NHL). The captain of the Boston Bruins played in a total of 2,237:19 minutes during the 06-07 season (1st in NHL). Chara was the man the Bruins counted on night in and night out to stop the opposing teams number one forwards.
Hopefully next season will be better.
