Hopefully this D line up is only a temporary thing. PK is much more effective when playing with Gorges.

I think when you are discussing the history of a team and their success, it makes little sense to pick an arbitrary time period and say "only things since this time count". I think when the discussion is history, you have to look at the entire picture. No one comes close to the success of the Canadiens.

Cheers cheers likewise. Chara and Lucic in my eyes belong in Boston, they got that face only a mother or a Bruins fan could love.

The source I found, and it isn't the most reputable:

"Question: Did the Montreal Canadiens ever have exclusive rights to players from Quebec?
Answer: Prior to the 1960s, there was no NHL amateur draft. The recruitment of prospects was simply a matter of first come, first served. The Montreal Canadiens ensured they were first served by establishing perhaps the greatest farm system in sports history, with junior and senior teams on the prairies, minor pro teams in the U.S. and entire leagues in Quebec. The Leafs operated a similar network in Ontario and beyond. All players signed to those teams remained the exclusive propoerty of the NHL "sponsor" team until they were released or traded.
Prior to 1967, the Leafs and Canadiens held a further advantage. According to A Thinking Man's Guide to Pro Hockey, by Gerry Eskenazi, published in 1973, each NHL franchise had exclusive rights to players within its 50-mile territorial limits. So the Leafs and Canadiens could browse the neighbourhood rinks near Toronto and Montreal at their leisure, while the Rangers had a lock on the next great goalie from Hoboken.

Most of these advantages disappeared in 1963 with the introduction of the amateur draft. But the Leafs and Canadiens continued to benefit from players developed under the old system well into the 1970s."

Ask the fans on HFboards what they think... hell, some of them think that the McLaren hit on Zednick was a dive. You probably weren't here during the Chara hit on Pacioretty, it was chaos and lies and cognitive dissonance.... and then THEY WON THE STANLEY CUP
.
Again, what does that have to do with anything? They defend their team with passion. Same as we do when Subban hit Krejci, or Kunitz or when Patches hit Letang or when he went to the movies after his concussion.

We dont agree on much but thats what this site is for, friendly debate and to kill time until the next game.

I swear some of you take this stuff way too seriously.....

Nordiques fans like to make fun of Habs not winning the Cup since 1993.

But when you ask them if their team has a Stanley Cup banner, they become Bruins fans.

How convenient.

I think we're forgetting who the real enemies are.

The Western Conference.

The Canucks used 'Ole' during their riot. They're phony's!

I had forgotten that it's not only their team that is full of Neanderthals, their fan base is too.

I understand that. I respect the Habs franchise. I hate every one of the players and the team, but I respect them. It's not like Toronto, they're just an embarrassment. Personally I am just thrilled the B's have gotten the better of the Habs in the recent past. I love it when the Northeast goes the way it deserves to go, Boston and Montreal in a dogfight for the top spot.

Even if the Habs got a tangible advantage from this, which they didn't, they have won 9 cups since 1967. That's more than the Bruins have in their entire history.

Face it, the Habs history is indisputably more impressive.

And his ties to the team led to him becoming GM, and he destroyed the franchise. Yeah, that was a sweet deal.

Also, the Bruins had an exclusive access to the players in the Boston region. It isn't our fault if the region can't produce talent.

I was disturbed by the short length of the GDT but then I remembered the mega pre game thread from yesterday.

The Bruins signed Bobby Orr out of Parry Sound, Ontario when he was 12 (I think). If a team was able to find 'em, they signed 'em.

It amazes me how many fans actually believe this pile of crap about the Habs having access to all French players. I mean, even if you can't be bothered to look up the facts, how hard is it to remember that Rod Gilbert, Jean Ratelle, Gilbert Perreault, Bernie Parent, etc. played for other teams?

Ken Dryden was in college and not ready for the NHL, so the Bruins didn't have a good line on his potential. The Leafs erred badly in the goaltender swap. They overrated Kessel while doubting they would finish so low in the standings as to have the second overall pick.

That's about it. The year after, they decide to change the rule, and Gilbert Perreault was drafted by Buffalo. Too bad. Just imagine him with Lafleur !!!

Bobby Orr was a territorial choice by the Bruins. The kid has been playing in the Bruins org since his early teens.
