Pittsburgh is already immensely talented. They just added two gritty character types to their lineup without sacrificing anything from their current roster.

Do you really think this Bruins club even with a healthy Chris Kelly can compete with them in a 7 game series? I don't.
Yup. In fact, a 7 game series is exactly the right scenario for Boston. The Bruins have better defense and better goaltending. When you can roll 4 lines and wear a team down over two weeks, I'll take Boston against anybody. You are wildly exaggerating the gap between these teams. Wildly. The Bruins lost a 2 goal lead in the third on a b2b scenario, and then by one goal in a game the Bruins owned for half of it. To paint that as some sort of nightmare matchup is greatly underrating the Bruins.
