Who is their Chara? Meaning, who is the player they center around?
I disagree. Bruins' toughness/grit style stems from top minutes players like Chara/Lucic...something the Leafs don't have. They tried to suffocate opponents with their team D/gooning and had vezina caliber goaltending when that failed. Leafs' toughness are waiver wire fodder like McLaren/Orr/Fraser. Leafs success IMO is from offensive skill and timely finishing from their top players along with special teams.
