You don't need to fight to consolide team toughness. We all know that there are not a lot of fights during the playoffs.

Plus, Boston, Ottawa, Toronto, NYR, etc, are not poor markets. Even Montreal caried a goon most of their existence and is Montreal a small and poor market? Your arguments as puss as your vision of what hockey is / or should be.

Isn't Carey Price one of the best goalies in the NHL?
I thought we were supposed to have 3 lines of deep offense in Montreal either.

The difference: we have no team toughness.
The Bruins beat us in 7 games... with that 7th game, plus 2 others being OT wins. We were one goal from knocking them out.... and you didnt address the "best defenceman in the whole league" thing.

Markov might not be as good as Chara, but give us Markov in that series, and we might have gotten that 1 goal we needed.

We might not have won the cup, but no one would talk about copying the "Bruins Model" thats for damn sure.

The Bruins were also a mere 1 goal away from getting beat by Tampa, another team not known for their toughness.

And Vancouver also took them to 7 games.
