Alright, the stats for 2010-2011 are out there and available. Dig into them and produce a summary showing where microstats predicted a Bruins Stanley Cup victory. And at the same time, use microstats to show that the Canucks were going to inevitably lose.
Shouldnt be too hard, eh?
I can easily pull up a few YouTube videos of the Bruins physicality completely taking the Canucks off of their game. Damned intimidation, an intangible, changed that Series around completely.
