That is a very strange comment.

Boston is a fast team with skills too. And they won the cup.

I find it boring to read many posters stating that toughness is dramatically lacking on the Habs team, and others stating that it is a myth.

I think that, as always, the truth may lie in the middle. Winning 4 rounds of playoffs hockey do ask for more toughness than the Habs have, I think. But it probably can be achieve with many resistant and big players, not necessarily tough. Do Habs have enough big and resistant players? I'm not sure.
