As classic as having the Leafs winning your division?

The Sens do seem to be all over you so far this period.


As a sidebar, my god is Chara large

Yup, you just about nailed it.

A lot of guys off to a slow start too (Lucic mainly)

The bounces against the Bs are hilarious. Too bad this wasn't the case in the finals

Lucic has been the second best forward on the entire team this season after Seguin.

Tim Thomas' new Discover Commercial, pretty funny stuff.

http://video.bruins.nhl.com/videocen...=659&id=131985

And I found this online (and yes, I know the Bruins won tonight). The rest of the pictures are here (it's from a Bruins blog) http://www.daysofyorr.com/2011-artic...-hangover.html

It's funny because those three are amongst maybe 5 players who have looked good so far this season for the Bruins.

The Sens played like **** and the Bruins played very well. Game should have been a blowout.

Seguin is awesome.

I don't blame the Sens on this game. In the last 6 winning games, they outplayed the opponents totally.

In last night game, the Bruins with their physical play and forechecking destroyed Sens's game plan. Watch how the Sens's powerplays failed miserably and their Ds fail to contain much bigger and stronger forwards.

I guess the Bruins are for real.

Also Seguin is very good. I'm a Habs fan but I can't help but admit how scary good the kid is and likely will be in the near future.

Thank you. not to mention although we hate to admit it, we suck against the habs.

I was at the game last night. It really wasn't much of a contest. When the Bruins actually out shoot someone, you know the other team hasn't played well.

One thing I noticed was how much the Sens use Karlsson. Man, that kid was on the ice all the time. He's great to watch, and he's a fantastic skater. He's a bit small and doesn't look great in his own zone, but he has a shot and can skate like the wind. Fun to watch.

They got lucky they didn't 'kick' the puck in during OT v the Habs in game 7.

But mostly, their forwards, no real stars. No 30 goal scorer.
And it's not like they had 3 Norris trophy winners on D, they had Chara, a stud, but not Bobby Orr and outside of him, just a bunch 2-4 d men.

Most telling for me was how a team with that bad a power play could be the champion. I just thought that a true champion, the best, having that power play, was wrong.
Can't argue with you there. They didn't even have one forward as good as Gretzky either.

Last night he definetly wasn't at his best, offensively or defensively. The hard forechecking was something the whole back end had s trouble with.
