It's almost a full day later now and I'm still disgusted at the outcome of this season

No, you said the league was aligned for the Bruins to win. They sure got all the suspension-related decisions in their favor. But if the league wanted them to win the Cup that badly, they would've finished us in 5 games. Habs had hundreds of chances to finish them off, but weren't opportunistic enough.

I agree.

But the reasons those players play BIGGER than what they are is named Chara, Horton, Lucic, Thornton and McQuaid.

This Stanley Cup is without a doubt, a mandate for PG to get big tough players who can and will fight at the drop of the hat. Boston's forwards, even the wimpy Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci (and hell, even Ryder was pounding people on the boards), played very aggressive and hard nose physical hockey........knowing that the knuckle draggers would stand up for them if someone took exception to one of their hits.

Good for them, they deserved it. But what sickens me the most is that Jack Edwards is the happiest man alive right now. That part alone makes me want to vomit.

Well, you can't make the bias glaringly obvious, can you? Of course, Ruins still need to work for the Cup.

Besides, rare are those who predicted Habs were such a tough opposition for them.
