I don't understand why the Bruins have this image of being so bad, big and mean. Can someone explain it to me because I don't see where it comes from. Is it just because Lucic and Chara are tough and also like to goon it up?
The Bruins have 3 forwards above 200 pounds who are regulars:
And 4 defensemen:
The Habs have 7 forwards who are 200+ and 10 out of the 11 dmen listed on TSN.ca are 200+.
The Bruins have 4 forwards below 190 pounds. The Habs 5.
The bruins just seem to thrive on physical play. You mentioned thornton, lucic, horton, chara , and those guys (except thornton) are 1st liners and top d-men. You also forgot McQuaid who is out 210 and 6'5 and ference who is small but likes to mix it up. That said i think Julien is effing up. thornton should be sitting (no one on montreal to fight), and seguin should be in his spot.
I know what you're saying (go up 3-0 rather than make it 3-1 is a different story even though the bruins blew...oh you know)
Also, the fact that there's 2 days between 3 and 4 means momentum could seriously switch if they win the next one. If we win game 3, it will be a deflating tues, wed and they will have to come up with miracle time stuff, so yes, we need a solid home game against them, something that we have done perfectly in recent times. We're gonna need AK to accomplish it I think. His hits and moves are gonna drive the crowd crazy, drive the bruins crazy and force them to do stupid things. Loving our forecheck right now.
I had been calling for Habs in 6. All the guys at work were calling me alot of names over it, but when I go into work Monday, I have a feeling all those same guys will take down their yellow and black decorations
The Bruins "flu" bruited about over the internet and in the columns has been identified. In hockey jargon it's referred to as an "upper body injury," and specifically a "lower head injury." We know better. The bug belongs to the CH virus family and the CH in this case doesn't stand for "CHara."
I've been wearing my white Heritage Classic Gionta jersey for the first two games. Do I switch to a red one for tomorrow and the away luck continues with the Gionta one, or do I continue wearing the white one despite us coming home?
1. Fire Julien and replace with Mike Milbury (Good broadcasters translate in good coaches)
2. Andy Moog as starting goaltender (Thomas and his Vezinas mean squat in the postseason)
3. Jeremy Jacobs sells team to Marc Jacobs (unis need a revamp)
4. Shoot less (because shooting it at Carey's chest is ineffective)
5. Dress Seguin and bench Recchi (more time to pursue his medical degree)
Well for one, hope they bench Recchi, isn't he usually good against the habs? Albeit he has been invisible these playoffs like most of their team... But still... If B's are to make a come back, I see it coming from him and Bergy.
You also missed, ( i swear I saw this) Chara isn't showing up on purpose. Also, Chara should have been able to play (doctor fanbase, what do want? am I right?). And, B's fans that happen to be conspiracy theorists, believe Julien is purposely destroying the B's in the playoffs because he knows he's getting fired anyways.
