Bruins Get A- From Fans In Recent Survey Of Boston Sports Teams

Published

on

Are the Boston Bruins the second most popular or best pro sports team in Boston?

According to a recent Channel Media and Market Research survey that included the Bruins, the New England Patriots, the New England Revolution, the Boston Red Sox, and the Boston Celtics, the Black and Gold are second only to the Patriots.

The annual New England Sports Survey where 16,115 New Englanders voted on their favorite sports team and not surprisingly, the defending and six-time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots got the best grade with an A+. What may be surprising to some though is the Bruins got the second-highest grade.

The defending Eastern Conference Champions received an A- after falling one game shy of their second Stanley Cup in a decade. It should be noted that the Game 7 loss to the St. Louis Blues at TD Garden June 12 was voted as the worst Boston sports moment of the last year.

Here are some topics fans voted on regarding the Bruins:

Most admired: Patrice Bergeron; Runner up: Brad Marchand

Most disappointing player: David Backes

Player they desire the most to join the team: Connor McDavid

Favorite player to win a championship: Bobby Orr

Least favorite player to win a championship: Tyler Seguin

Improvements: Stronger puck movement, be more physical/tougher on the ice, don’t let the best players go unsigned, more physical players, acquire a true goal scorer/sharpshooter.

BHN’s two cents:

Most admired: Bobby Orr; Runner up: Patrice Bergeron

Most disappointing player: Zach Hamill; Runner Up: David Backes

Player they desire the most to join the team: Connor McDavid; Runner Up: Mitch Marner

Favorite player to win a championship: Bobby Orr

Least favorite player to win a championship: Tyler Seguin

 

Note: The parameters of this survey were not made public.
