The Habs top-9 forwards have gotten notbaly bigger and more physical recently. They're much better forecheckers, tougher along the boards and quite a bit bigger than the Leafs... particularly Cole, Bourque, Pacioretty, Moen, Kostitsyn and to a lesser extent; Plekanec.

Also, Subban, Gorges and Emelin are pretty solid competitors on defense that you didn't list because they didn't fit your dismissal of the Habs emerging toughness.
