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.
Interesting thought... My buddy has seats about 10 rows behind the goal for Bruins games and it definitely has its pros and cons. I think the new safety netting at both ends would impede any type of end-rink camera angles.
