Bruins won the cup because they were the best team.

My depression comes from the fact that the Habs lost in OT in the 7th game. However, when you consider that the Habs came close to beating them without Gorges and Markov in the line-up that bodes well for the future. Love how Gauthier is focusing on Subban, Weber, and Emelin this season; the proper move imo.

As stupid as this sounds, the B's winning is probably means zero to me. I mean, with the off-season its pretty easy right now obviously. Maybe when they hang banner and the bruins face us, i'll feel it, but right now, it's like it never happened. I found so many bounces when their way i find it hard to feel they destroyed us or the tbl. Hell, i saw 'putting the whistles away' in game 7 of TBL series as a favour to them, because TB is lethal on PP.

In any case, my friend and I even joked about it yesterday. We basically say last thing we remember is that it was 3-2 series Vancouver and then a riot broke out and the stanley cup finals were cancelled for the year.

I don't like that certain friends of mine have bragging rights with they don't deserve, otherwise I think this should give Montreal some incentive to win in the future. Signing Erik Cole and Markov shows that Gauthier is serious. Not sure why he signed Kostitsyn, but there's always the trade deadline. I want playoff players in here! But we need more goals too.

Don't lynch me...

I wasn't mad that the Bruins won. They definitely deserved it more than Vancouver and it was just laughable seeing them crumble the way they did. I laughed the entire 7th game because it was just pitiful seeing the Canucks out there. I never liked the Canucks so it was pretty hilarious to me. All my friends were devastated, I was laughing.

I thought it would be really annoying to have Bruins fans everywhere throwing nonsensical bs about "we won the cup goon goon goon *monkey sound*" but it hasn't been that bad. I think Bruins fans in general have a newfound respect for the Habs seeing as we were their hardest series. I think they understood that we don't dive, cheapshot and complain any more than other teams in the league.

Would have been depressed if the Canucks won.

But we're still the last Canadian team winning a cup. And we're just half Canadians...

"I think Bruins fans in general have a newfound respect for the Habs." Um, no. Boston is unique among North American cities in that it has more schools per square foot than any other city. It was an every child must be able to read and interpret the Bible thing... Boston has Harvard and MIT, and a lot of smart people who settle their after college. And your average Boston fans thinks that Montreal's team dives too much, has a very strange passive-aggressive nature, and that since the draft advantage has gone away is just another team. We took in Begin after he broke Savard's back with a cross-check. And we're taking in Pouliot now that your coach didn't know how to use him. What we won't do is call the Boston police every time Price chops at Lucic's heels. Good luck next year...

no you know why? because they bought the cup. Only person who deserves an ounce of credit is Tim Thomas, the rest can go up a tree for all i care.

To me their Cup win doesn't mean anything, when you have all the calls, plays, etc... in your favor from piss poor refereeing, and a joke of a discipline committee.

As far as I'm concerned last team to win the cup was Chicago.

As a Habs fan, this might sound like blasphemy, but I preferred the Bruins winning than another Canadian team.

I hate every other Canadian team and city, so if Montreal can't win I don't want a Canadian team to win. Boston was the absolute worst possible back-up plan to Vancouver winning, but if anything it intensifies the rivalry and will make me feel much better if we destroy them next year (and honestly, we have a good chance if everything goes to plan and players stay healthy)

For a post bragging about how smart Bostonians are, this was one of the biggest nonsensical pieces of garbage I've read on these boards in a while.

The best player we ever drafted with our "advantage" is Réjean Houle.

And I'm not sure where you are going with your amount of school thing, but Montréal has the highest number of university students in North America.

And if people around Boston would be that intelligent, they wouldn't believe in anything they read in the bible.

The ignorance you've spewed in this post floors me. I have to ask, did you attend Harvard or MIT?

I'd highly recommend you stick to watching Bruins games. As your knowledge of the Habs and our fan base is just down right embarrassing.

Oh and good luck to you too.

The dynasty days are over and Montreal is now just another team. The Bruins were the best defensive team in the east last year and also had the best +/- but some of you guys are trying to say that the Julien's team got lucky. We just played better two-way hockey than anyone else in the east last year. And the numbers will back that up. Beyond that, the team showed a lot of heart and character after Rome's late hit on Horton in the finals. They buy into Julien's system, have a bunch of young talented forwards and stars in Chara and Thomas. You guys can underestimate us all you want, but whether it was hockey karma or the hockey gods we won it all this year. I'm glad you guys are happy with your team and insofar as your teams interests don't collide with mine next year, I wish you all the best PS If Pouliot finds a home on our third line with Seguin and pots 20-25 Julien is going to look like a really good coach... and for 1.1m, Chiarelli is going to look like a really good gm...

I'm happy for Thomas and I'm hopeful the Bruins winning the Cup on top of Daddy Campbell not handling discipline will end the favorable treatment the goons in Boston had all year.

Side note: I'm also so fking happy the SCF were on VS and not NESN. Having to listen to that clown Jack Edwards saying "and the Bruins win the Stanley Cup, MOUAHAHAHAHAHA" would send me in anger management therapy.

Please do us all a favour: show us how smart you are, and precisely define the draft advantage the Canadiens had. A lot of us don't seem to know about it as well as you do, but you seem like a really bright guy with sources you can use to document your claim on this matter.

Greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

The unfortunate part of 'no child left behind' is that a few have to be carried. Sometimes upside down for long stretches.

Boston has more college kids than Montreal - you could google it - but believe what you want. The larger point was that you people in Montreal think that people in Boston don't know anything about hockey are somehow care about it less. This thread had people going on about how Boston was lucky and undeserving. The Bruins were the best defensive hockey team in the east last year and had the best +/-. In the salary cap world that comes down to the team that Chiarelli and Julien put together and coached. From believing in Tim Thomas when others didn't think he was worth $5m per year to building around Chara, they have made solid decisions. I don't expect you guys to acknowledge that, but I've got to restore a little reality in here.

Well, the simple fact is that your bolded critique of the Habs has nothing to do with the Habs organization, and everything to do with Quebec law.

Chara throwing Pacioretty's head into into a stanchion at full speed, which you are referring to in an apophantic manner; as something akin to Price slashing at Lucic, simply reflects the dissembling over-valuation of a very, very small number of Boston fans.

Seeing as you point out how educated are people in the Boston area, I'm sure you understand the tenuous nature of the assertion of this thread post.
