Talent wise the Habs and Bruins are not that dissimilar... The Bruins finished with 23 more pts not because they have more talent. They had better coaching and certainly better chemistry and a higher degree of cohesiveness.


In terms of "pure" talent Kovalev, Tanguay, Markov, Price and A. Kots can certainly compete with Savard, Krejci, Chara, Thomas and Kessel. It remains to be seen whether Markov can play and whether Kovalev and Tanguay can continue to be 1.5 ppt per game players... and whether A Kots can finally leave the off-ice problems behind him (I think that the media fisco really affected him mentally).
