But even still, Leach, Clarke, Parent, even Schultz when he wasnt going all Neanderthal, these guys were good solid tough as nails players who stuck together like glue. In Montreal they encountered a club that was superior at every position, and not one you messed with physically, one that simply couldnt be intimidated. Indeed, I rate that Habs team, circa 72-79, as being the best ever, and here I am a Leafs fan from an era when they were winning Cups.
I'm a Bruins fan who suffered through those years and I also agree, this was probably one of the best teams ever for a few years.
