You finish first...and your considered Cup favourites. Anything less then the Conference Finals should be considered a HUGE fail. Same goes for us this season
A detail people forget is that Pittsburgh intentionally dived their last game by sitting out a lot of their major players to make sure they didn't play Philly (many thought Ottawa would win their last game and play Washington). Had the Pens played a full roster, Montreal would have played Ottawa and Boston would have played Pittsburgh.
I wish death (in a natural and peaceful way, at no specific time, when he feels like it) on a generic Bruins players, because if he would live for eternity he might get bored. Yeah that's how i am... classless Habs fan.
That wish appie to everyone on earth, because living for eternity is something boring.
Carey Price was absolutly horrible vs Phil last PO. We basicly outshotted them .We had more scoring chance and we basicly dominated the play 75% of the time.The series vs the bruins was much more difficult.
Carey Price choked.It's was plain horrible to see him play.
We also finished with 104 points.Thanks to the 16 points the bruins gave us . Thanks also to our powerplay.Our PP completly dissapeared after game 3 .. Claude Julien outcoached Guy Carbonneau.The bruins started to climb us but by game seven they had no more fuel.Game seven was a walk in the park for the habs.
If the bruins had won only half those game vs the habs.Habs would have finished with 96 points and Boston with 98-100 points.
Boston are much more a contender than the habs were last years.That what i'm trying to say.Because WE also don't know how will be Carey Price.
Tim Thomas is pretty classy. And as for experience, Price has even less so I don't get how this is an argument.
Tim Thomas has 38 games of professional playoff experience
Carey Price has 33 games.
The difference is not all that much, when it comes to "playoff" experience. Personally, I don't put too much stock in the playoffs being all that different from the regular season; you just don't play the crappy teams between playing good teams.
