I wouldn't take Lucic and I said it before. I never said in place of DD...I'd take anyone in place of DD at this point! lol

Lucic

Then they're so good up the middle....then on the back end and goaltending. Solid solid team.. built for the playoffs.
How things change fast. If anything, these playoffs show me that seriously anything can happen.
Pretty boring even game, just a couple lucky bouncing pucks and just like that it's 3-0, and then 4-1.

However, the Pens didn't seem to have understand their mistake from last year. Their defense is just way too weak to compensate their mediocre goaltending.
In no way are the Bruins just that much more dominant than Pittsburgh though. The Pens are not only playing some really poor defensive coverage but the Bruins are getting the lucky bounces.

Consolation? No, you actually can do both. Win and laugh at your rival. See what the Bruins are doing towards us....Not wanting the Bruins to advance and be scared to death is the flawed logic. 'Cause by not wanting it to happen, it's realizing that they are strong and you can't deal with it. I suggest we start doing it. Will be easier to move on. But what we need to do is realize that goaltending plays a huge part. That they have the mix we need to have. And that it starts on the back end with a game changing player. And depth is incredibly important. Bruins have the perfect playoff team. And it will be like that at the very least till Chara retires. Does that mean they'll win it all every year? Of course not, injuries might happen, they might meet a hot goalie and so on. But they always will be a force to be reckon with. Let's hate to accept it and move on. But let's stop using excuses and realize what we are confronting with in our conference.

But a little laugh never hurt anybody....it is just hockey after all. So if we can at least laugh at the expense of one of our rivals...I don't know what the problem is. We are the laughing stock of a lot of teams lately...pretty sure they love doing it. I think that till we become a force in this league, and since the Bruins will be a force for future years, might as well not be ridiculized by our other rival too. Gives us some time to breath....

Toronto has to be in it with the Bruins. They first give Rask for Raycroft. They now send Seguin (who's struggling though..) and Hamilton (who will be great for the future) for Kessel...and then blow a 4-1 lead giving the Bruins a trip to the Cup Finals.

I mean, no wonder Bruins fans don't have any problems with the Leafs...

What we hate is that it's a rival team. But we would have their mix with our team, and we would be drooling over it...

The lesser of two evils? Can't deny Boston has a great team but as a Habs' fan you just have to hate them. Someone was going on about the crappy reffing and that's why Boston won the last game. No, I think this has more to do with Pitts crappy defensive coverage and mediocre goaltending. And, again, Boston is just more balanced. We can only hope they get complacent and have one of their epic collapses.

In a heartbeat.

Watching Boston... they're (almost) everything we're not.

The Leafs winning that series would not have 'ridiculized' us in any way.

Chicago will suit more the Bruins...but geez, you are still having a freakin average goalie in net. Crawford won't be able to do miracles. You will have to hope that Rask is being bombarded hard and be totally mediocre. That's the only hope.

Damn how can you look that bad. The Pens are tripping over their teammate's stick, they are bumping into each other all over.
Nothing is working, at all, for them. Haven't seen them look so bad in quite a while.
