If the Bruins didn't get lucky this year with Tim Thomas, and they were very lucky because he'll never be able to come close to what he did again, then they'd have the same amount of points as us. Likewise, if we had a little bit more lucky on our side, we'd have a few more games in hand.
Lucky with Thomas? This is the second time in 3 years he's displayed Vezina trophy type play. How is that remotely luck?
Incidentally seguin while a disappontment to me is still only 19 and capable of becoming Boston's top skill player by say 2012-2013. Boston is set up right now
to contest with Pittsburgh for the next year or two for EC dominance.
Boston has overcome the loss of their top skill center, so they have proven they
have quite a bit of depth. They also lead the NHL in 5 on 5 goal differential which many people overlook.
