Moen: Meh. Can't fight, and doesn't hit a lot. Was missing in 2013.
Pacioretty: Big, but not his role and not a hitter.
Prust: Great.
White: Too small, can't fight.

D:
Bouillon: Tough, but at 5'8'' and 37, he doesn't scare anyone.
Emelin: Excellent hitter, but can't back it up in scrums/fights.
Subban: Can hit, but too good to be his main purpose. Can't fight.

I mean who would stand up if someone as irrelevant as Boychuk or McQuaid decide to stir some ****? Prust, maybe Moen. And then we have to deal with Chara, Lucic, Thornton, Campbell, etc.

Thing is, I'm all for being faster and more talented than the Bruins, but if our grit factor is at 0, then it will always be something they can use to put us off our game, like they did to the Canucks.
I wouldn't call Boychuk irrelevant. He has a good shot from the point and scores goals. As for the Habs-Bruins match-up, the Habs have done OK on the scoreboard. Look it up if you can't remember.
