The NHL Network has shared yet another top-20 positional rankings, and a pair of Boston Bruins made the cut.
Thus far, the network’s treatment of the B’s has been so-so. Its ranking of Patrice Bergeron among the top-20 centers was rather baffling, but its inclusion of Charlie McAvoy and Torey Krug in the top-20 defensemen was fair, if not generous.
