Out of those players, if there even are any, which ones can play the ****ing game as well?

And let's say we somehow magically "handled" Lucic. Who's then going to "handle" Chara? The Bruins have a unique (as in no other team can compare) blend of size/skill/toughness that makes them a very, very good team. They have arguably the most intimidating defender and power forward on their roster, and some people are complaining that we don't have the personnel to go toe-to-toe with them? No one does!

The Bruins aren't going to be beaten by being physically out-matched or intimidated. They have that market cornered. They'll need to beaten in other ways and considering the Rangers record against them over the last few seasons it looks like they have that pretty well figured out.
Agreed. Ference could beat up at least 1/2 the Ranger team.
