What the F are you even talking about?

Thomas is an American and was inconsistent as hell until the Finals. He scared his own teammates just as much as he scared the opposition most nights leading up to the Finals.
Chara played well throughout but was also inconsistent. Being sick in the first round didn't help his chances. Getting burned by Tampa forwards a few times didn't help either.
The B's entire first line of Krejci, Horton and Lucic scored 37% of their points in the 4 game sweep of the Flyers.
Without that series...
Krejci GP-21 P-14
Horton GP-17 P-10
Lucic GP-21 P-9

No, sorry, Bergeron was noticeable every game he played and stood out at one end or the other, if not both.
He was their most consistent player and their best on more nights than not.

Thomas found his consistency in the Finals for sure but that was NOT the way he played in the previous 3 rounds, that's for damned sure.

EDIT: Just a little trivia, Bergeron is now the only player to win a World Junior Gold, Spengler Cup Gold, Olympic Gold, World championship Gold and a Stanley Cup.
