Playing 7 games with broken ribs, torn cartilage and jammed wrist sure makes Thornton sissy. Not.
What's ridiculous is the way Bruins Fans kept saying that our team was made of a bunch of sissies like you say. Koivu was dominant in the Bruins series as well as one of our best in the TBay series when Mr. #19, well you know what he did....NOTHING!

What's also ridiculous is when somebody doesn't read the post properly. Where do I say something about kids

Anyway, just another bruins fan still frustrated...You should know how to take losses since you're use to....

Go Saku!

Must suck to be a Bruins fan!

It's great to be a Bruins fan!

It suck we lost but we are in the same building mode...with young core.

Our core players Thornton , Samsonov, Boynton, Bergeron, Raycroft are 25 or younger and have bright future.

I am not here to troll. I look forward to B's - Habs rivalry for years to come.

It's just these comments looked unjust to me.

Some of your friends kept saying we're just divers, fakers, didn't deserve to beat you guys, do you expect we say nothing. I would take Thornton on my team anytime but the way Saku's played compared to Thornton's makes me think about the endurance your Joe has and I prefer having Saku over him anytime. How many of your fans said that Zednik probably fake and dive tonight? A lot of them I'm sure and since he didn't comeback he was then probably too fragile to compete. We have some divers yes, like every team does and these comments like the ones most of your friends made were truly unjust as well.

...as a side note, I guess Q didn't finish his career the way he'd of liked:

Montreal defenceman Stephane Quintal pronounced himself fit to return from a shoulder injury, but was not in the line-up. Julien said Quintal was not 100 per cent ready and ``I don't see who we would take out of the line-up.'' A disappointed Quintal's response was: ``I have nothing to say''

Saku is truly a great Habs.

We'll always remember how he played in these playoffs.

Those fans who booed him aren't worthy of the Capitain.

I won't make Koivu-Thornton comparisons because it isn't fair. mcphee never passed his medical boards so I'll let that one go. Rest assured that if a 6'4" talented center with a mean streak wants to play on my team, I'd take him and hope he becomes a champion. That being said, as the game was winding down, before CJ's words, I got to thinking about the hockey Koivu has played lately, shift after shift, against elite opponents, never backing up an inch, instigating and fighting for every inch on the ice. I've seen Mtl. captains since Jean Beliveau, some have won cups, some haven't , most wore the C proudly. Koivu,imo, ranks up there with the best of them. He doesn't say much,nor did Henri Richard. If you don't see his on ice behaviour as a tremendous example of leadership, I question your ability to understand much. Finland will be proud to have him lead their team this fall in the world cup. He may someday carry a Cup around, he may not, doesn't change a thing.

Hope the fans will think twice before booing a player,

Ribeiro OUT!

Saku's the man!
Why is it necessary to degrade one player to emphasis the value of another.

Saku lead by example. He has proven to be a great team player.

I just finished watching TQS here in Ottawa (a french station from Montreal)

They are crapping all over the Habs. The only difference between your team and ours is..... you've got 4 more losses!

As for us choking last year......... were you even in the playoffs?????

Kind of childish Tim, it's over you lost, be a man now and move on. We lost, we'll do the same, was your post necessary, did it make you feel smart ?

Lighten up for crying out loud!

You made it to the second round and we didn't. That should make you happy for the whole summer. We sure as hell aren't. This is only a board to post opinions about hockey, not the freakin House of Commons.

Aaagghhh can we please keep this from turning into a Bruins-Habs fight ??! This is a thread for paying tribute, homage, respect, blind devotion and unconditional love for the incredible captain of the fabulous Montreal Canadiens

Of course the fact that it's a rib cartilage injury draws comparisons to Thornton, but let's not go there.. No-one here knows exactly what the severity of their injuries were. Thornton will live to fight in many more playoffs, and Boston fans will eventually see whether or not he can deliver the goods there. He probably will.

But Koivu... Man, oh man, oooooooh man!!! As if it wasn't enough that he carried the team in offensive production (together with Kovy) and played great, physical hockey, never giving up an inch and once again playing like someone who's 6'2"... And he was injured practically the whole time! Another memorable chapter in his career.. He is just unbelievable.

Well...he's currently tied for the NHL playoffs scoring lead.

Saku Koivu earns the right to be my avatar. The Captain standing in the big CH logo says it all.

Make that 3 more losses

Anyways...
Saku has always been an inspirational player and any doubt of this has to be gone now. He was our best player these playoffs and I can't wait until he gets to raise the Stanley Cup over his head as the captain of the Montreal Canadiens.

I like all smart habs fans hope to one day see Saku raise that cup above his head.

And with a warrior like he is, it will happen. Oh yes, It will happen.

And HabsFunk, don't forget about One more win

A true warrior. Saku is seriously the man. I won't even go into the comparison of another guy with a very similar injury, all that matters is that Saku was our MVP, even with a serious injury. It sure would be amazing to see him and Kovy playing together healthy for an entire season.
