    If the Habs put up a good fight but lose the series to the heavily-favoured Bruins, we can still console ourselves with the great improvement in the team since Bergevin took over. We’re bigger and tougher than two years ago, our lineup is better balanced, and we have a great deal more depth. We’re on the way to becoming an elite team; one more good draft should give us the organizational depth to take the next step. Who knows, by the time we are truly elite, the Bruins could be on the way down, their years of low draft picks starting to show in the team they ice. There are cycles in team building; no team stays at the top forever.

      Bruins will still be a contender for several more years.
      We still have to get more grit and be bigger with offensive scorers as well, we lack offensive scoring if Vanek signs in the summer in Minny.
      I would not say the team would be an elite team but a playoff contender if we still have the core of our players with the team like Subban, Gallagher, Pacioretty, Price to name a few several seasons down the road.
      Good luck to the Habs, I still feel Bruins will win the Cup.
      Wish the team kept Julien instead of firing him back in 2006.
      He is a very good coach who know how to get the best of his players even the old days in Hamilton.

      We will also need Toronto’s help if we want to be as good. They got Rask, Seguin and Hamilton out of their bonehead deals. In the meantime we got Gomez for McDonagh and Weise for Diaz 😉
