Boston Bruins: Top 30 Players In Bruins History

17 of 31

#15 Brad Park

(From Causeway Crowd’s Brandon Share-Cohen)

Brad Park was the key returning member of the trade that sent Phil Esposito to the New York Rangers. Park immediately became a force for the Bruins, and in his nearly eight seasons with Boston, Park put up 417 points, a point total that is only surpassed by Ray Bourque and Bobby Orr. Park truly exemplified the “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride” saying by being the runner-up for the Norris Trophy in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, and twice while with the Bruins in 1976 and 1978. Every team wants a Norris Trophy winner, but not every team has the opportunity to employ a consistent Norris Trophy contender. Brad Park came to the Bruins at the expense of one of the most loved Bruins of all time, but he was good enough that the fans didn’t seem to mind in the long-run. Park was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1988.
