    Actually that's incorrect. You voiced that you're still not ready to forgive Marchand. Someone else said this thread was depressing, and then I merely commented agreeing with that sentiment. You then quoted me directly and came up with the time tested classic"if you don't like it, leave" attitude, and I responded to you saying your expectations for what a message board should be are fundamentally flawed. But hey, have at it hoss. You go right ahead and absolve yourself of anything and pretend it was me doing something to you.

    Wow, you went to all that effort when I'd already agreed with your 3 times remark and was actually just explaining why that was the case, the mistake rather being to think that I'd moved on from the topic as a whole in the first instance rather than from your part in the discussion specifically?

    And you think I'm wasting my time...

    Wasn't addressing Tampa Bay. They aren't a particularly physical club.

    St. Louis was, and they handed the B's a beat down. All I'm saying is that Boston needs to regain a greater physical presence and intimidation factor.

    Look at game 7. Tell me they "competed."

    I'm not down on the B's. I'm down on the idea that they don't need size & a mean streak.

    Did you not watch the ****ing first period?

    They didn't just compete, they dominated. But they had bad luck and couldn't get anything in, Marchand missed an open goal, so did Mojo. Even after the O'Reilly goal the Bruins continued to push the pace of play the rest of the period until Marchand's dumbass line change made it 2-0. Then StL just trapped the rest of the way.

    I just can't take this persistent narrative from half this board that we're too soft and got manhandled or something dumb like that. They were one OT goal away in game 2 or one penalty call in game 5 away from winning that cup.

    look, I recognize that there’s very little chance you’ll come off this stance...but the Bruins outshot the Blues 27 to 10 through 40 minutes. If you don’t think that’s even competitive, I don’t know man...

    Blues barely touched the puck in the first and after the second goal, the Blues sent 5 guys to do nothing but clog the middle and block shots. They packed it in and the B’s couldn’t do anything about it. In the third? Yeah, the compete wasn’t there...frustration settled in and the air was completely out of the building.

    If Marchand doesn’t peel off for 8 seconds of extra rest, they win that game. Not a doubt in my mind..they were easily the better team in the first 30-35 minutes. It wasn’t even close from a compete aspecting

    None of that has to do with having a “mean streak”...what does that even mean? they led the NHL last year in fights and were second in PIMs. Did they have that mean streak 2 days before when they beat the Blues 5-1 on the road?

    Never should have went 7 the Headshot Champs did their job to perfection. I just wish the Looze would have played Washington so we could have watched 2 failed franchises in one cup final. Bruins should have gotten there last season and played the Golden Knights would have been a fun series with both teams matching up well in skill and speed.

    Is this an alternate timeline you are referring to or do I just need to get a decoder ring?

    Pretty sure it will be right there with the Seguin trade and Barzal for the rest of our days.

    It’s an absolute embarrassment that there are fans on this board saying the team “didn’t show up” or “didn’t compete” in game 7. The sheer volume of visual and statistical evidence that has to be ignored. Just staggering.

    No denying they didn't play a fantastic 17 minutes.

    I don't give a damn that they outshot the Blues 27-10 in the first period. Once that second goal went in the net it was game over. Everybody in the building knew it including and especially the Bruins. They did not play championship caliber hockey after the first period and that is a fact.

    "Domination" is worthless if it isn't reflected in the final score, we've all watched other sports where one team absolutely crushes it statistically but still loses in the end.

    Your last paragraph completely changes the topic. No one said “oh it’s okay they lost, they tried”. The issue is with the liars who claim that the team didn’t compete. You saying “the final score is all that matters” just proves your absolute refusal to grasp a simple point.

    No one said they didn't compete.

    I wrote that they need size and physicality. I also wrote that St. Louis manhandled them, and they did.

    PS "Mean streak" means playing Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Cam Neely, Milan Lucic hockey. I also love Bob Gainey, Patrice Bergeron, Larry Robinson, Nicholas Lidstrom hockey. Sue me.

    Not only did someone say they didn’t compete. YOU said they didn’t compete.

    Shots on goal. Such a “fancy” stat.

    The game wasn’t over after 1 period we were the home team and just needed a good second period and to make it 2-1 before the third so pressure was on St Louis. We didn’t come close to scoring again until it was 4-0 and late in the third.

    The only stats I’ve mentioned are shots, goals, penalty minutes, and fights.

    Which one of those is fancy?
