Bill Russell would be a beast today - but heck, he was a beast in his own day, as well. And comparing Jordan to DeMarr freaking DeRozan should be grounds for - well, I'm not sure exactly, but something. Jordan would dominate DeRozan (and likely Harden, for that matter) in literally any type of...
I'm surprised that no one has been talking up Wayne Simmonds. The Bs just got pushed around in the SCF. Shouldn't "find someone who can skate a top 6/top 9 shift who also creates space for himself and his linemates" be high on the priority list?
Yeahbut - you don't count on your goalie to stop only the ones that hit him, he needs to stop some that have a high degree of difficulty.
To be fair to Rask, there is no game 7 if he doesn't do that throughout the playoffs.
To be fair to everyone, Binnington did and Tukka didn't tonight.
Truthfully, if you go into the other team's barn and win 3, you deserve it.
That's what I told the Toronto folks before game 7 of that series, and its's true here, too. .250 at home doesn't cut it in any sport, at any time of year
Sort of the anti-2011
And as people often say, you are what the numbers say you are, and right now, one guy's numbers say 1.000, the others say .750. Tuuk had no chance on the last one, but the others...
You kinda can - cashing opportunities is definitely part of playing well (as is the odd steal by the G of an opportunity that should be cashed).
Whoever said that the Bs might be Dryden'd tonight should be banned forever.
I think y'all should cut Haunted a bit of slack on the shit thing. Just saying.
And while I'm just saying...these Bs aren't the 2011 Bs, but they need to take a page from that book and make some of their own luck here
For some reason, the young woman in the Beer Store just objected when I referred to this evening as "Bruins Victory Night." "Not a fan," she said.
Torontonians are weird. Wouldn't it be worse to see a team that entered the league after your last Cup win it? I know I felt that way about the 1992...
Yeah, the Finals were Cheevers time - and while Eddie Shore was an easy pick when two more wins were needed, 1 is a tougher number - until you combine it with 4, which is the right total (plus reflecting all-round legendary status)
