There are different paths to success in the playoffs for different teams. IMO, the three main things got the Bruins through the playoffs were scoring depth, an effective shutdown defense pairing, and of course goaltending. Health was also important, but that's a hard factor to control.

Price was the best goaltender the Bruins faced, so it's no surprise the Habs were also the toughest series.

The Habs defense is hard to judge because of injuries. It seems like Markov is always injured...do you anticipate he can have a healthy season at this point in his career?

In my view the Habs have decent forward depth and can spread out the scoring across lines. Adding a couple bigger skilled players would help for sure.
