Stating the Obvious

watching the game last night, one thing is painfully clear. Speedy, talented, great goaltending, wonderfull administration or not....we are painfully undersized. This team needs some size asap.

I would respectfully disagree.

Size is overrated. Montreal was beaten by a team that was more aggressive, playing a system and controlling the flow. Boston has a more mature team and they played like veterans.

Montreal played like rookies battling nerves.

I agree. While size is nice, aggressive hockey players are what we need.

I expect that BG is constantly looking for more aggressive hockey players that play the game the way he did. If they happen to be big, so much the better, but, big & passive isn't going to help.

The Habs team which upset the Bruins 2 years ago was actually smaller than this one.

Thats exactly what i thought after the first period. I think many people forgot the fact that we are still a rookie team by majority.


There are more rookies than vets on our team people!
