Being from boston, ive watched in pain as the Boston Bruins year in year out miss the stanley cup.. We (Boston Bruin Fans) watched Ray Bourque grow from an 18 year old to a senior player and dominant force in the league throughout his career...

I was glad when he went to colorado for the last year or so of his career...

It was evident that boston was not going to win a stanley cup in Rays lifetime..

Unlike many of the players nowadays in most sports.. Ray Bourque decided he loved the hopckey town he was in and was not goint to move for a few extra $$$$. so he stayed with boston for 20 years.. way underpaid - as most bruin players are... but never complained..
he only went to colorado in an attempt to win the cup.. His lifelong goal as a player..


Well.. Ray is going to the hall of fame... no big surprise there.. but for me as a bruins fan and a ray bourque fan I think it could not happen to a better player...

its too bad more players - in all sports- could not learn a little from Ray about Fan loyalty, City loyalty an Team loyalty...










ray bourque gets the call

I couldn't agree more that Bourque deserved to be voted in :thumbsup:

I, also think that there is alot more of that kind of player in the NHL going about business and be traded or dropped cause of age or disability,then, they get involved with a real good team and they become real stars, worth the money... Shame that some owners seem to take the low road in team building instead of giving it to those who are real talent and do the days share of work. Just look at teams such as Det., Col., Tam., etc, yiou can finr the Ray Bourque's and these guys are the real stuff. Yes Ray is very deserving of his status, but there is always someone else......:)
