Boyton yesterday, on a radio show, said that the habs were a bunch of divers, then there was someone else that said someting i cant remember. Well, its their fate. Thats all i gota say.
What show was boynton on anyway?
``I think as long as we do what we do well - get the puck, move it up, be aggressive on the forecheck with our `D' closing up the gaps - I don't think any team can beat us,'' Rolston said that day. ``If we bring that (that night against the Canadiens), I don't think they can compete with us. We're too big down low, and our defense and goaltending are solid, too.''
I'd have to go hunt, but i dont see any difference in this than i do the quotes of the montreal player who's name i cant not remember, but they were along the same lines.....'as long as we play are our game we can beat anyone.....'
Wonder if they posted all of his quote, or just the ones thart sounded good?
or any of the other boston players quotes about how good montreal can be?
What do u expect, some player to say they actually think they cant win, even when playing at there 'best'?
``We expect (Raycroft) to play the same way he's played all year - which is spectacular,'' Bruin Ted Donato said. ``On the other side, we expect Theodore to be spectacular, too. He's a great goalie. We know that every game is going to be a very close, tight-checking affair. Look at the regular season. We expect more of the same.''
"Every time you play Montreal, it's a good atmosphere out there," he said. "The fans really enjoy this big rivalry. We're just very excited to play them [tonight]. They beat us pretty good [in 2002], so hopefully we can come out better prepared this year than two years ago."
``If we face Montreal in the playoffs, it's going to be a tough challenge, because they've got a lot of skill and a great goaltender,'' said Rolston. ``You never know what can happen against a great goalie.''\
``Their speed is one of their biggest assets,'' said B's coach Mike Sullivan. ``We're a team that has a lot of size and strength. I think we're a team that has the ability to control territory. They're a team, not unlike Tampa and a lot of fast teams, given the opportunity, they're going to come at you. If you let them, they can certainly put you back on your heels. Momentum is a big part of it.
Doesnt all that cocky to me............
