Although they proved to be the best team in the NHL, the Bruins lacked the individual star power of some other teams, which became even more apparent with the release of this season's jersey sales totals.
Bruins forward Milan Lucic was the only member of the Stanley Cup champions to crack the top 20, according to Sports Business Daily. The list is headlined by Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, while Lucic's jersey was the 14th most sold.
Crosby took the top sales spot for the sixth straight season; he has captured it every year since entering the league in 2005. Three other Penguins made the list, with Evgeni Malkin at No. 5, Marc-Andre Fleury at No. 10 and Kris Letang at No. 17.
Capitalizing off last year's Stanley Cup win, the Blackhawks equalled the Penguins with four members in the top 20, headlined by center Jonathan Toews and winger Patrick Kane at No. 3 and 4, respectively. Fellow wingers Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp finished at No. 16 and 19, respectively.
Rounding out the top 20 was former Bruin Joe Thorton.
