I'm just happy the B's finally have a pool of young talent: Bergeron, Kessel, Krejci, Stuart, Rask, Sobotka, Lucic Nokelainen, Wheeler, Soderberg, and Lashoff.
Yeah. The Bruins are CLEARLY the better offensive juggernaut. Thats why they scored 212 goals this year and Phoenix scored 214.

Lets just take a look at the irony of the statement that the Wheeler wouldnt be counted on offensively as much as he would be in Phoenix

Bruins #1 - 78 points, Yotes #1 - 78 points
Bruins #2 - 56 points, Yotes #2 - 56 points
Bruins #3 - 51 points, Yotes #3 - 54 points
Bruins #4 -39 points, Yotes #4 - 51 points
Bruins #5 - 37 points, Yotes #5 - 46 points
Bruins #6 - 33 points, Yotes #6 - 35 points
