Boston saw something that they liked in Hargrove. As much as I hate to say this, Boston, under the guidance of Chiarelli have gone for size and physicality and have been more successful than the Habs.

But anyway, its irrelevant since its done.
Clearly Boston and Habs have a different philosophy about players to target. I've envied them for too long. I hope that stops.
