Julien & Bergeron Signed Books on Sunday

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins -- With the holidays rapidly approaching, what would make a better gift for a B's fan than a copy of Full 60 to History: The Inside Story of the 2011 Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins?

According to Boston Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien – nothing.

On Sunday, Julien autographed copies of the book at the AT & T store in the Northshore Mall, and he said what’s great about the book is the accuracy. The commemorative book includes photos, stories and vignettes from the behind-the-scenes action from last season.

“People are buying it for Christmas gifts and there’s nothing better than to be able to get it personalized and autographed,” Julien said. “But what’s great about this book is what’s written in there is accurate. Nothing is in there to make it exciting – it’s the real deal.

"People get a chance to see what was happening behind closed doors.”

Julien said that the book is great because it refreshes some of the memories from last season, but also because it will be a great reminder in the future.

“There’s a lot of things you read in that book that you’ve forgotten,” Julien said. “But I think it will mean even more as the years go by. It will be memories with your kids and your grandkids, and it becomes more and more exciting as the years go by.”

Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron also signed copies of the book on Sunday at the Bruins Pro Shop in TD Garden. Bergeron is the second player to sign copies, after retired winger Mark Recchi signed copies for fans Dec. 12.

“Fans are excited to have the insight and look at the Cup run, and it’s been nice to share that with them.” Bergeron said.

When Bergeron got his hands on a copy of the book, he couldn’t help but flip to the last chapter and look at pictures of the celebration. But he said it looks like an awesome book, and like Julien, Bergeron said he is excited to have it as a souvenir for when he looks back at the championship years from now.

“I enjoyed it just to read it, but in 10 or 15 years from now I still will,” Bergeron said.
