This pisses me off. And it still hasnt dawned on a lot of people that the reason the Bruins won that Cup is because they had a very good mix of talent and toughness.
We have had some talented teams. Not so much on the toughness.
The unbalanced approach is not working.
We never had a team as talented as the 2011 Bruins since 1993.
Besides, the toughness in playoffs for the Bruins comes from Lucic and Chara. Guys who are not 4th liners goons that can't play hockey.
Many soft teams also won the Cup, so the unbalanced approach clearly can work. And teams with goons often bench them in the playoffs.
A goon would be fun, but to think it would make us closer to a Stanley cup does'nt make any sense.
