There is a reason why there is so much hate between the Bruins and the Habs.

Its because the Bruins have been able to do anything they want to any Habs player and not have anything to worry about it. The Bruins have/had ZERO RESPECT for anyone on the Canadiens team (maybe with the exception of White).

The idea to build firepower is not to scorch everything in sight. No, it is there to cut down on the use of firepower.

Proof of that was the Ottawa Senators of last season. They had plenty of firepower on their team with Carkner, Neil, Konopka, Smith and Foligno to a lesser extent. One would think that every time that they would play the Bruins, it would be a fight filled game with thuggery (or truculence for the ex Gauthier fans ) and beatings on the blood covered ice.

Ottawa had 53 fighting majors last season. Only 6 involved the Bruins. Respect for toughness actually turned those games between the two into actual hockey games played with skill.
