For the last 15 years, Donnie Sweeney has graced the blue line for the Boston Bruins.
I am going to miss the guy. He wasn't the best player, but he was a guy you root for. I met him once in his second year or so while he was doing the Bruins' Wives Carnival. He was terrific with the fans and a class act.
It's been a fantastic season from the viewpoint of the regular hockey fan. The type that wasn't going to be put off by the lockout anyways. The NHL hasn't grabbed that many of the on-the-fence fans back, yet, because of the OLN deal.
