By "contender" I asume you mean a contender for the Stanley Cup?

Habs forwards are smaller and generally faster (but no faster than Vancouver - the Canucks are as fast as Montreal and have more overall skill/scoring)

Bruins just proved that in order to win 4 rounds of the playoff grind a team has to be bigger, stronger and more physical (size and toughness defeated skill, speed and finesse).

Habs are a soft team to play against - doubt that other teams dread playing the Habs because the Habs are considerd tough and physical.

No....IMHO, the HABS will likely continue to be mediocre at best - expect that they will continue to fight for a playoff spot 'till the last week or so of the regular season (i.e. some things never change)!

JAGR?

Jagr was once a great player.....he turns 40 in February - hardly in his prime - seriously doubt many top level teams are interested in signing him at this point in his career.
