Bruins in 5, they're just much better as a team and will intimidate the Habs.

With Markov and Lang in I'd say it would be closer. Also if Plekanec wasn't such a Fairy and if the Kosts were producing/playing..

Price gets bounced in Game 1, we lose that.
Halak comes in and stifles them the rest of the way.

BRUINS IN FIVE

Honestly, all bias aside...I just don't think the Habs can handle the Bruins in a 7-game series physically. Last year Montreal got worn down as the series went on, but dug deep in game 7 behind their superior talent and home town crowd.

The biggest difference this time around is a healthy Chara and the ability to produce offensively. Whether Markov and Schneider play is irrelevant IMO. Bruins know they're playing hurt and those two are going to take a lot of hits every chance Boston gets.

If Habs can steal 1 of the first 2 games, it's going to be a very interesting series.

If Markov misses any significant time....Habs don't have much of a chance.

Montreal last year > Boston this year.

We won in 7.

So yeah, in 5? You wish.

Agree. Not only that but I really think that the Bruins started the series being intimidated by the regular season they had against us.....but then woke up and realized that they could play with us. Clearly the intimidating factor is not on our side this year to say the least....

Here's something I posted back in October:


"As we all know, the Bruins finished last season 0-7-1 against the Habs and finished 8th in the East. What's interesting are these numbers:

Records against the rest of the league
Montreal 40-25-9, 89 points
Boston 41-22-11, 93 points

Montreal went into the playoffs as Stanley Cup contendors while we went in as jokes that were going to get rolled. I realize that I'm getting into ifs and buts and it's time to move on but if not for our struggles against Montreal, we could've easily snagged home ice in the first round.

I think at the very least it gives a glimpse into just how good we can be. No need to even mention being Bergeron, Kobasew and Fernandezless (just did).

Even if the Bruins would have won a mere three games against the Habs and finished a poor 3-5-0 against them:
Montreal 45-28-9, 99 points
Boston 44-27-11, 99 points

That's right, we could've hovered around the 100 point mark and contended for first in the Eastern Conference."

So you're basically saying that if last year Boston never played against the Habs, Boston would've been better than the Habs?

****load of ******** right here everybody.

How do you figure?

Should be a fun series, I really don't think the Habs are a threat to the Bruins with or without Markov. Reading some of your guys' posts you'd think Markov was Bobby Orr with the difference he'd supposedly make in this series.

How so? Markov can't play 60 minutes up front, on D and in net. And if there's one guy to target it's him and they'll do it. And I agree with the poster it won't matter. The only difference I will notice is that instead of being 6-2 if he's not there, it might finish 4-2 instead but still in Boston's favour.

Honestly, let's put our bias aside for one freakin second. How the heck would you think that we have a chance? Less physical, 2nd line is better but not great, Komisarek struggles like no other, Price, despite being great, is still in a 1 softie per game mode, Chara is healthy, Markov is not, Thomas has been great all year etc....

I don't see it.
