Different teams build their teams in different ways but when all is said and done it seems to be one formula that keeps teams at the top. 

Building a solid microcore, an elite center, elite defenseman and elite goalie and then you build around that. 

Craig Custance of The Athletic went around the NHL to see who executives and scouts feel have the best microcore in the league. 

The Boston Bruins sit at the top of the league tied with the Tampa Bay Lightning for first. 


For the Bruins, the core involves Patrice Bergeron, Charlie McAvoy and Tuukka Rask. 

Check out the write up on the Bruins:

"Again, another Cup contender. No shock here. The Bruins have had a great microcore for a long time and the emergence of Charlie McAvoy extends it even further. "McAvoy is going to be the guy. I like (Torey) Krug but McAvoy is the better all-around player," said the scout in debating the Boston defensemen. Oh yeah, they've also got Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak unaccounted for here. "Add their wingers and it's right there with the premier teams," said an executive."
