The 2002 and 2004 Bruins both suffered from a terribly immobile defensive corps and a lifeless bunch of forwards. They simply played like they didn't give a ****, and it was very upsetting to watch. Many of us knew the shortcomings of those teams, and the speed of the Habs was able to overcome our size. Things have changed a bit (we're not as big as a lot of Bruins posters seem to think), but we finally have a balanced offensive attack. I think it'll be a vastly different playoff series this time, regardless of winner, where both teams are constantly threatening to score. So excited!
