Habs vs. Hawks finals??
Bruins did it in 2011. 3/4 of their series went 7 including the final.
They beat the Habs in 7, the flyers in 4 then the lightning in 7.
Finally the Canucks in 7.

Perhaps I misread the T.V. Sorry guys...
I did read something about teams playing more than 18 games before the cup final has never won?

EDIT:
It was game 7's in first two rounds!!!

You better apologize. Mistakes aren't allowed on this board. We're all pretty much perfect.

Of course Therrien is playing tighter and giving more TOI to his best players. But I still don't see how this bench is managed either at the micro-level (i.e. within one period) or at the macro-level (i.e. over the season).
Line-up is the Macro level.
So you don't see management of the bench at Macro level?
Interesting... I was think that Gallagher, Bournival and Galchenyuk.
Weaver, Murray, Bouillon, Beaulieu, Tinordi went in and out all season.
You may disagree but saying no bench management?

And you don't see bench being managed during the games?

I am going to give you a few links. Then you can come back and tell me how many lines were built in this round alone:Do you see any changes in the lines?

NHL are trying so much to even things out. They didn't punish the head butt cause they didn't punish the cross-check(which was nothing). Then they give Moore two games, just cause they had given Prust two games on a similar hit. While really Moore's hit was far more dangerous, it was intent to injure, vengeance on a guy Moore wanted to take out. Plus there was a message sent by the league after the Prust hit to "don't do that, kids". But that kids did not care for it, cause he went and did the hit anyway. So in the futur folks, "if you want to give a head shot to anybody, go ahead kids, you'll only get 2 games".

but yeah, let's rather throw the skill monster Prust in there. because he's showing so much more effffooooort duh.

Real hockey expert right there.
There are more worthy candidates for you to fight their battles for them.

A few weeks ago, somebody had posted that no team had won the conference finals after going to game 7 in the two previous rounds. They had a 100% failure rate, which would mean that the Kings and the Rangers (who played 14 games in the first two rounds) were guaranteed to lose if we take the statistic seriously.

I was on the side that the statistic was a fluke. We could still see a Kings Rangers final.

Of course it's a fluke. The idea is that the correlation between the grind if 14 intense games and success is something to be aware of - the Rags were 2nd best the last two games. They look tired.

I'm still majorly pessimistic, we really need to shut em down from the get go, slow the game and get a PP goal or two.

A lot of people did not get that it was a fluke.

Aa for pessimism, I think our odds of going to the finals are ~ 30%, not bad really.
