I'm sure you can cherry pick a quote or two that supports your contention, but your statement implies a board-wide consensus that does not exist.

What we do find puzzling is the teams' respective records against the rest of the league: Habs 34-24-10, Bruins 37-21-9. And no, I'm not suggesting that this indicates the Bruins are better (because right now they're not, and all the games count equally in the standings). But are they that much worse so as to explain the s***kicking that has been administered each and every time at the hands of the Habs?

Anyway, right now the Bruins are playing some pretty mediocre hockey, so if there's anything due, it just may be 0-7...
Hey hey hey... no way you get off that easy!!!


The Bruins are a great team. Who've gone through a lot of adversity this year and surprised many....


They're due. OK!! OK!!

Sure the records on the season are ''close''...but since December 15th:

Boston: 19-16-6

Montreal: 24-13-5

Even if you take out the 2 Habs wins in January over Boston from those records, the Habs record since then is still 9 games over .500, while the Bruins one is 5 games over .500...

This date is important because it's basically when the Habs lineup added S. Kostitsyn and Gorges on a full time basis.

That's fine - the Canadiens are clearly the better team right now, and I have braced myself for another a**wiping tonight. All I was saying is that I don't think the disparity in the two teams' records (before or after December) matches or explains the disparity between them when they play eachother. The Bruins have not played even close to their potential when playing the Habs. If all you've seen of the Bruins is them playing against the Habs, you must be wondering how they are not battling the Kings in the Stamkos sweepstakes.

Having said that, I don't know how often you have watched the Bruins lately (say the last 10 games), but for some reason they have been at best mediocre (squeaking out an overtime win), often just plain bad (losing in regulation), and sometimes horrendously pitiful (Washington/Toronto blow-outs). I've seen nothing which indicates that they will bring their A game tonight - if they even have one anymore.

Of course I hope they prove me wrong, and somehow rise up and spank the Habs.....but I've seen this movie too many times.

Should be titled under the same name as Carrol Quigley's historic novel... Tragedy and Hope!

Nice try once again..

But we won't be foiled!


I assure you. Most Habs fans are extremely apprehensive about the upcoming two games. I know I am.

We know how you feel...Have you seen the Habs vs. the Sens?
