This season alone, the Bruins will face an absurd amount of former teammates from their 2011 Stanley Cup Championship run. All former teammates who switched jerseys this past offseason after playing a crucial role in the Bruins’ success in winning their first Stanley Cup in 39 years. However no matter what anyone says, there’s no bigger contest than tonight when the Bruins play against the Florida Panthers, anchored by goaltender Tim Thomas, the most important piece of the 2011 Bruins’ Championship team.

It’s a weird question, right? Take a talented, young captain of an Avalanche team who is on the verge of winning their fourth-straight game to start the season under new coach Patrick Roy, and pair him with the Bruins’ top-line winger who is no stranger to mixing it up with opponents.
So, who wins? Nobody, really.
Rask has never started more than 45 games in a season and is now responsible for the bulk of a full, normal campaign. If Rask gets injured or his play begins to slip, who’s there to back him up? An unproven goalie who only has AHL experience, albeit excellent, or a career minor-league journeyman who isn’t even seeing time in preseason games? It’s a little puzzling.

Each of those players are, for the most part, untested in the regular season and could be a wildcard with a regular 82-game season on deck. Don’t be fooled by their inexperience, because these three could make the defense more dynamic than ever before.
