If we are to compare our team to the Stanley Cup winners.

Goaltending - Price is as good as Thomas

Defense - (Markov, Gorges, Subban, Gill, Emelin, Spacek, Weber) - Not quite as tough because of the Chara factor but better offensively with Markov and Subban.

Forwards - (Not many changes are expected for the Habs) - Skill wise, the Habs might have an advantage. Boston's 3rd and 4th line are better and tougher right now. There is more size and toughness on the first 2 lines also.

Coaching - strategy and system seem similar but Julien is much more emotional and involved during the games.

So, to me, the missing ingredient is pretty simple : Size and grit, both on D but especially up front.
