[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tim Thomas- The epitome of being overrated : I assume you are talking about the Peter Klima goal in triple overtime in game 1 of the 1990 cup finals. Yep, remember it like it was yesterday. Get depressed everytime I see the replay. To this day, i still think if stone hands Glen Wesley doesn't miss that open net in the 2nd ot, we win the cup that year. Has to be one of the most heart-breaking losses in Bruin history.

I live down in NC now and my boss asked why the Bruins did not come out (for the presentation) to Glen Wesley night a couple years ago at the RBC Center.
I asked if he remembers this missed open net that any one of us could have at least hit, and he of course does not, being a newer fan.
Wesley was a solid player, but wow was he overrated.
Don Sweeney had a better career than Glen Wesley.
I still say if Boston somehow won that game, they may have won it in 7.
Edmonton was still loaded, but after they battled and won that game, it really put Ranford into another level of confidence and it had the exact opposite effect on Boston.
To this day, that was by far their best assembled team (since the late 1970s), and it's slowly been all downhill since then.
