3. Ray Bourque
This was really hard.  

Ray Bourque was one of the best defenceman of his time, and it was a long time!  Bourque played the most games in Bruins history, has the most Points in Bruins history and leads the franchise in many more statistical categories.  

This is a great player and a legitimate first ballot (which he was) Hall of Famer.  This is a multi-time Norris Trophy winner and a twelve time First Team All Star (as a Bruin).  This man was so loved that the city of Boston celebrated Bourque’s win with the Colorado Avalanche, which netted him his first and only Stanley Cup Ring.

So why number three?

Unlike Orr and Shore, Ray Bourque was never believed to be the bester player in the National Hockey League, and did not take his team to a Stanley Cup win (in Boston).

Still, if you want to tell us why he should be number two (or even number one) we would definitely listen.
