    Did the Bruins even lay a finger on him? I don't think they did.In the other series leading up to the finals you could see the sharks and Stars were targeting O'Reilly,and making him pay for every stride he took, the Bruins not so much.

    O'Reilly looked like a beaten man coming into the finals.

    You cant grip your stick right or with any strength. Makes it very easy to lift your stick, smack the puck away from you, and generally take the puck off your stick. You'd be a turnover machine if the opponent found out and went after the puck whenever you had it. You also could not shoot very well and would have a very hard time getting the puck off the ice on any shot.

    If he did, there are quite a few guys in that locker room who would be sitting him down right now for a talk, Bergeron being at the front. Way too many guys in that room with concussion histories and hard stories to not turn him straight on the matter.

    Hey if that helps you sleep at night and gives you an excuse for losing three straight at home in the SC finals then bless you.

    Broke them vs the Jets iirc. Still won Conn Smythe somehow.

    Yup. Sure, some of the Bruins had injuries, but at times they played as if they were fine, and if ROR could do what he did with broken ribs, then Marchand, Pastrnak, et al could have stepped up their game too.

    That isn't really how it works.

    Other teams seem to target our players with rough stuff.

    Definitely wasn't a game plan of ours.

    Gryz was targeted at times, Pastrnak was targeted in the last 3 series.

    But the Bruins never seemed to go out and try and make life tough for the Marners, Matthews, Panarins, Ahos, RoRs, Tarasenkos, etc.

    Too many guys laying off hits. Not giving them those extra shots in the scrums.

    All these injuries make you wonder what use are the black aces?

    I mean if Moore can barely hold a stick why isn't Vaakananien in?

    With all the injuries to forwards nobody was worth being a substitute?

    At what point is the experienced guy at 50% or less better than the young/reserve player at 100%? Looking at that injury list it's hard to imagine there weren't at least a couple of options available that would have been better. Gemel Smith, Paul Carey, Urho or Lauzon, It's a bit hard to understand.

    If Debrusk played down his concussion to trainers not a single player in that locker room would have talked him out of it. And they shouldn’t have.

    Players don’t look at concussions the same until they’re retired and broke. You’re not letting a concussion get in the way of a Stanley cup.

    If he was cleared, he was playing.

    Fresh legs means so much,the later you get into the playoffs. You can look no further than Sanford and Kuhlman. I don't know,but Bergeron just wasn't the Begeron we were used to seeing until maybe the final 15 minutes of game seven as it was pretty apparent at that point,that it really didn't matter if he injured himself further.

    Not a good sign if he was battling concussion symptoms for over a month.

    I hear you loud & clear ST. I can easily see the son of a former NHLer doing this.

    "Adding to the team’s laundry list of injuries, Sweeney said Acciari will receive secondary testing on his heel, and forward David Backes has “something he’s following up on” as well. Sweeney also noted that center Joakim Nordstrom suffered a small fracture in his foot but will not require surgery. The updates come a couple of days after several players revealed the extent to which they were battling injuries during the series. “It’s a testament to the courage of each and every one of them to push themselves,” Sweeney said.

    I hope Backes isn't dealing with concussion symptoms again after all those high hits he took.

    Heel injuries are brutal. I hope it isn't broken because bruised is painful enough.

    I guess Nordy's epic shift was even more Campbell-esque than we thought.

    Yep, that was a hell of a shift. Not sure if it was confirmed that that was the shift that injured him, but I'd be shocked if it wasn't.

    He fractured his fibula in the winter classic so this is a new injury.

    The navicular bone is the bone at the very top of your foot on the big toe side which is completely exposed when blocking shots.

    We needed Miller. They hit hard and the b's had no answer for it.

    The B's need a couple of players who can play and hit.

    No one wants to hear it but Quaider would have been nice to have. Maybe Maroon wouldn't have spent pre game skate threatening some of the smaller B's.

    Sigh...They did well to get as far as they did.
