Hey guys, chin up!

Don’t be so down about this series. You guys have a very, very good team and you could of won it. The only thing you need is a guy or two with a lot more heart and a better coach. You have size and you have speed, in fact, you have a fairly well rounded team and with Razor, you finally have a number 1 goaltender.

Despite what some of you think of Joe, I think that he is a dominant force. Don’t diss him just because he is badly hurt and can not play to YOUR expectations. After all, most of you could not even move with his type of injury.

Only peeve….

I had a great time coming here and reading all the great posts. The only thing that I have any complaint about is the dissing of the CH. A long time ago, a military analyst wrote ”respect for the enemy and never underestimate him”. Clearly, a few measured the size of the players but not the size of their hearts.

Anyway…….

The future looks really bright for BOTH teams. We will meet again and very soon indeed. I see both our teams to get better and better until we will both fight our way and walk proudly on the Promised Land.

Regards and respect.

Let's face the reality , I don't think they can have their chin up , it is a devastating loss for the bruins , I feel sorry for them because they have brought nylander and Gonchar and they loss vs a 7 place team. they have 11 UFA .. I hope that they will come back hard next year , but let's face it , if it would have been in a HABS situation , we would be DEVASTATED

As for now , you can't say to keep their chin up ! , it must be difficult for the fans , I wouldn't want fans from other team be all sympathic about a situation when I know that it doesn't make sense

Thanks....But its hard to keep your chin up now. We just blew a 3-1 lead with 3 uninspired efforts (more if you count the lucky win) against a team that on paper doesnt have close to the ability that this one does. Unfortunatly you cant measure heart and desire on paper and this bruins team has none, while its probably the strong point of your habs. As for respecting the opponent, I still cant do it. I did after every other playoff loss for the past 15 yrs...but I honestly disagree with the way that many of the Habs treat the game of hockey. Its all moot now, but thats where alot of the disrespect came from and in my opinion, no respect is deserved.

Is the future bright? Maybe, but we need to give the team a major facelift, spruce up the leadership and get some new fiery coaches in. Before tonight I was very anti-joe but I thought he played great tonight and got no bounces...plus if his linemates were effective this series he should have a handful of assists. I think the biggest problem was keeping him with Murray who limited his play and to an extent held him down. Regardless, im interested to finally hear the injury report. I wish our guys, as a team, would play with the intensity of the habs. Good luck in the next round, its alot tougher when your opponent wants it as much as you.

I'd like to thank the Bruin fans on the board for making this a hospitable place during the series. It's nice to talk hockey with fans with a different perception and I doubt we would have been tolerated in the same manner on any other boards. You guys personify hockey fans and are to be congratulated. Wally, if I skirted near the line sometimes, my intentions were good. Thanks again.

maswe12,

There uis not as much size difference as some perceive. As far as skill level, well, we are pretty close and perhaps a touch better because Kovalev has decided to play like he can. As far as coaching, a "yeller" coach will only go so far in today’s NHLPA. I think you need a smarter coach who is able to take advantage of the players abilities. What I saw tonight is a coach that kept throwing Thornton out there with a "hope and a prayer?".

As far as the Thespianism...

I am a Hab fan for over 40 years and I downright hate clowns. Many a cyber forest have lost their lives when I start railing against today’s mercenaries and heartless warriors. But, don't look at the stupid "I am shot" antics of Ribeiro, instead, look at the heart someone like Begin brought. You may not like us, and I respect that, but the Hab's walked on the Promised Land because of their heart and desire......of the Great ones....not the clowns.

Back to the Bruins…..

I know that you are down because of the loss, but you still have some tremendous assets. Thornton is an elite player. Samsenov is top quality and you have a few kids that will be great in the near future. I don’t think that one can stay upset too long.

Thanks for a great series guys, a great rivalry, and game 7, what more could you ask for?

But in the end, the habs are the better team, on paper, bruins are the better team, but we had more heart. I wish this series could go on for longer, i loved it.

One more thought....

RESPECT Thorny for playing hurt and stop dissing him. He is as much a warrior as Begin is. Don't kick your best player just because he could not fullfill your dreams. If I know anything about hockey warriors, he probably has more pain killers in him then a horse. Respect the man for what he did and the pain he is going through.

I agree. The Bruins have a terrific goalie in Raycroft and Bergeron is very impressive. I suspect Thornton will be even more determined next year and the Nylander-Samsonov combination is solid. It was unfortunate that Girard couldn't play.

It was a hard fought series by two evenly matched opponents. You couldn't ask for more. The B's could have easily prevailed. It was that close IMO.

I really like Begin...it may be because I hold the Habs to higher standards than the rest of the league, but it disgusts me to see what I saw in this series with the Habs. I respect them for the heart and desire shown, but as a team i dont respect their antics. 5or 6 guys just embarrased the jersey they wore and the game they played.

As far as our talent level...its probably overated....maybe if muzz and rolston were as good as their numbers suggest or in the case of rolston, as good as his numbers usedto be, we would have the edge in talent. Coming into the series I feared Kovalev more than any other...I think, koivu aside, the rest of your forwards are decent. But they all skate hard...play hard...and they wanted it more than our guys did. I think your Dmen played really solid defense...did an awesome job of keeping our shots from bad angles...where our dmen were once again little more than pylons. I really wish we lost playing our best games...but for another year we didnt and our opponents did. I respect them for playing well...but sorry, for once, I cannot respect them as a whole.

He woke up one day and realized he had no heart. Someone told him he would have to play hard, go to the net and hit people to get one and he said no way.

At least I'M honest ... Most of Habs fan were hating the bruins , and laughing at Thornton , even if they were not officially saying it on the boards. And now we say that Thornton was good and ect .. Stop with the hypocrisy , I am a habs fan and I would be MAD if someone from the other team were coming to the boards and say that we have had a good team and blah blah blah.


I'm with you on this one Bruinster.


I am not the one to bash the Bruins , but I am not hypocrite also ... If habs fan were really sincere , good for you , but I doubt it.

I would like to thank the B's fans for being the best here at HFBoards. Simply put, there is no group of classier fans than those who frequent the halls of the Boston Bruins. And I'm not just here spouting off with a giant grin on my face, remember that I posted in your fan roll call that I was a B's fan as well. Yes, I'm a Hab fan first, but there's a reason that I like the B's as well, and it doesn't always have to do with the players.

I as well will say to keep your chin held high. But that's got nothing to do with what happened on the ice, it has to do with the fact that you guys are a classy and knowledgeable lot. We don't have half the intelligent discussion on the Habs board because we have about five times the trolls of anyone else here who hijack any conversation. Yes, you have your trolls like anyone does, but on the whole, the Bruins fans at this board are my favourite. (That includes you, JOHNNY V.)

I can honestly say that, not only have I learned a lot about the Bruins, but I've learned a lot about the game of hockey from this board. I've very much enjoyed coming here to discuss hockey, and for those of you who need the summer to recuperate, I look forward to seeing you in the fall. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy your playoff hockey, no matter what format it comes in.

With sincere thanks, all the best.

A Concerned Fan

It was a great series and another chapter in one of the best rivalrys in pro-sprts and I'm thankful that Boston gave the Habs such a great series.

This one I won't be forgetting for some time!
