NESN’s Bruins analysts — Jack Edwards, Andy Brickley, Dale Arnold, Billy Jaffe, Barry Pederson and Andrew Raycroft — participated in a “Bruins All-Time Fantasy Draft” that aired Sunday night on NESN.

Each analyst, choosing from a pool of 97 Bruins players (past and present), drafted a team of six forwards (two centers, two left wings, two right wings), four defensemen and one goalie.

So, how did the draft — completed in snake format — shake out?

Well, Pederson went chalk with the No. 1 overall pick, choosing Bobby Orr, one of the greatest players in NHL history. Jaffe followed with Ray Bourque at No. 2, another unsurprising selection given the defenseman’s impressive 21-year run in Boston.

From there, things got a bit more interesting as the analysts bounced among past Bruins legends and current Boston luminaries. Edwards picked Patrice Bergeron at No. 3, before Brickley chose Eddie Shore at No. 4. And Raycroft and Arnold rounded out the first round by selecting Zdeno Chara and Phil Esposito, respectively.
