The Bruins had a definite psychological advantage over the Canucks.
Sedins, softest players in the nhl.

Having a lot of guys to goto war with has helped them a lot in the highly competitive western conference. Doesn't mean they didn't have other flaws. Like drafting.

Watching the game between the Habs and Sens the other night, the Sens now that what's Team Toughness. Our players had trouble maintaining a good PK with all the drafic in front of the net while if one of our player approched slightly the net of Anderson, the Sens' D would take his head off.

One of the Sedins got his finger cut off to recover from an injury quicker. I'm sorry, but that's more bad*** than some 6'6" goon punching someone half his size.

Scott just hammered Thornton. Put him out of the game, looked like a concussion to me.

see, i don't like reading this. the sedins are not soft. kaberle is soft. the sedins take a lot of hits, they go into the corners and they take a lot of abuse. they never fight back though and would rather draw a penalty than standing up to someone. if you say the sedins are soft, then the same goes for diaz, weber, eller, markov.

seriously, that final against the bruins made them look really bad and now people only see marchand treating them like a ***** and not their overall body of work if you permit me the expression

John Scott destroyed Thornton. Not only won the fight but knocked Thornton out of the game. Hell, HockeyFights.com is so slow because of everyone going there to watch the fight and post smack talk.

What is lost on a lot of people was that the Sabres scored an empty netter to really close out the game with a 3 goal lead. Normally, that's when the Bruins bring out their tough boys and commence to ganging up and beating up non-fighters..........remember Pyatt, Hamrlik and Spacek.....

7 seconds left in the game and Lindy Ruff calls a timeout. John Scott steps out over the boards to finish the last 7 seconds.

The Bruins tucked their tails between their legs and skated off the ice.

You think they would let the Canadiens leave the ice with a 3 goal lead without a fight? If you are honest, you know the answer to that one.

Diaz, Weber and Eller are soft. Markov has too many injuries to be fighting.

100% agree with what buffalo did. we're headed in the right direction. moen, white and prust. **** disturbers like subban and armstrong.

Habs have never been known for having goons who can't play. nilan, ferguson played regular shifts...

I'd like the Habs to draft a big tough winger this year with one of their seconds. a guy who can fight and score 15-20 goals.

tinrodi will help a whole lot - and I hope sooner rather than later. THere is no one else, outside of him and Schultz in the system. ok maybe Thrower.

as was previously said: more than one ways to skin a cat. more than one way to get character. all this focus on toughness ignores the fact that the kings are not considered tough in the same way as the bruins. going by some of the assumptions here, the hawks were soft. and same goes for the pens and the wings. these four teams have one thing in common, guess which?

The Habs have had goons before - Brashear, Laraque, Staubatz, they just rarely last very long because they are well, useless. Shame Shultz seems to care about eating more than playing, thought he had 4th liner potential.

And the Bruins have one as well.

The point he was trying to make is that there's no one, set textbook way to make a team tough like you are trying to claim. So far no other team has been able to copy the Bruins hockey playing heavyweights, but plenty of other teams have been able to make noise without running away scared. It's not black and white, and if you think everyone who doesn't fight is soft I don't know what else I can say.

Please stop using Laraque as an example of a useful player.

In Pittsburgh, he whipped a lot of ass regardless of who he was up against. In Montreal, he developed his "code".

Staubitz played a partial season for a coach who had lost the team a long time ago. I wish that we had Staubitz on this team this year.

Bring up Kordic and what he did during the Habs Stanley Cup win.

The younger Brashear and Laraque were decent players. We got Laraque at to old of an age when he just wanted a paycheck. I'd take the younger BGL who played in Edmonton, he was fierce then. The best is if we can draft another guy that can at least be a good defensive player like knuckles Nilan was on a shut down line.

I'd have no problem with having the young Laraque, I remember he had an odd tendency of going on scoring streaks for a "goon" besides being a monster, shame the one we got was worthless.

I don't see the need to sign a John Scott though, he's awful...the only way it would make sense is to sign him for the Bulldogs to replace Stortini or something and bring him up for one game if everyone is that insecure about the Bruins.

We also tried winning without Swedes. Didn't work, did it?

Meanwhile, the Red Wings and Blackhawks won the cup with Swedes.

I guess we need some Swedes then.
