Seguin is much better. They traded quantity in exchange of quality. I'm sure this serie would have been different with Seguin instead of two good bottom 6 guys.

Lucic is a "fake tough", the kind of guy that will desperately want to fight Gallagher or Plekanec but be as quiet as a mouse when guys like Parros, Laraque or Scott are around.

I used to watch him for comedic entertainment, he isn't even worth that any more.

His game fits well in the playoffs, he loves the physical stuff and battles.

Smith and Erixon are solid players, but not in the same stratosphere as Seguin who has superstar or at worst perennial all star/franchise center potential.

Trading quality for quantity is never a good deal imo.

It works for now cause they have Chara, Bergeron and Krejci. But chara is getting old and Bergeron and Krejci will start slowing down 4 years fron now.

They will miss Seguin eventually unless Reilly Smith becomes a top quality player or they are lucky with the draft.

I was there... surprise tickets for me and my girlfriend's anniversary... I'm hungover, I don't usually drink and I drank.

I feel like I had a hell of a workout last night, just aching all over.

Wish I could give you a better report, but I don't ****ing remember the game except the goals and the last 10 seconds. And the goals I saw on TV this morning, so I'm not sure if I remember that, or if I remember them from being there...

.... that's pretty much it. Dominating the play doesn't mean anything if you don't lead games or win them. The Habs have been ahead or held the Bruins to a tie for the great great majority of the series so far. If the Habs win game 4 I think the Bruins morale will plummet. They've lost home ice and they failed to get it back, if the Habs win game 4, of course, then Boston needs to beat the Habs three times in a row in a series in which they've only led for like 10 minutes total.

If there's to be a disgraceful incident, it will be tomorrow.

Oh for sure. Seguin is a legit star, or will be. He'd be their most dangerous weapon up front. Just saying, at least Smith is doing well for them.

If I ever get thirsty I just log on HFBoards and go over to the Bruins/Sen/Leafs board and get some Delicious tears.

Canadiens fuming over Lucic spear on Emelin - Sportsnet.ca

Another spearing incident involving Boston Bruins winger Milan Lucic had members of the Montreal Canadiens front office fuming in the wake of Game 3.
Edit: The video on this article doesn't even show it good.. But last night on the replay good watching live and it was pretty bad

Dont get it. Lucic is big and tough, why does he have to resort to such dirty plays.

Watching NHL Network listening to Hab interviews, and they definitely have the team mindset in place reminds a lifer fan of the 70's teammates, and 60' oh and 50's too.

And the score could have been 4-1 if marchand was called for the slash on the first goal.

Not sure what happened to Lars but he got the flu and suddenly comes back seemingly fleeter of foot?
Hope it works that way with Borky too.

You didn't see Lucy hiding when confronted by someone his own size, obviously. To call him a bully is doing disservice to the word, he gives new meanings too many abusive remarks and needs his own diction. Pitchforking wasn't his alone but he certainly has perfected getting away with more than any player in history or as long as I've watched hockey.

Seguin was shut out against us his first go-around against us, has built up a reputation of not scoring in the playoffs, and Smith has two goals in three games. Eriksson used to be, and still young enough to be, a top-6 guy but the Bruins are loaded in their top 6, so he gets third line duties. His point production pace still reflects a capable scorer, however.

Seguin would be playing in Smith's spot, thereby lower his point totals compared to being the first line guy and having Jamie Benn as his teammate.
