    Rat vs. Rat

    Marchand vs. Shaw.  Pretty similar players in size.  Skill goes to Marchand.  Both are greasy though and a real pain in the azz.

     

    Playoff stats:

     

    Shaw: 4G 3A 7PTS 26 PIMs

    Marchand: 4G 9A 13PTS 16 PIMs

     

    Can't wait to see them in eachother's face!

    Bruins have both a weasel/rat but much more talent, speed and skill. Other players to take notice:

    Looch-Bickel

    Chara- Keith

    Rask- Crawford

    Jagr- Hossa

    Krejci -  Toews

    Kane - Horton 

    Both coaches are very good, bruins 2nd line against the Hawks 1st line and both teams defense lines cannot make too many mistakes.

    Overall should be an awesome SCF, can't wait go bruins

    Re: Rat vs. Rat

    Hossa scares me the most.  Im confident bickells gm will drop when faced with chara.  Same for toews kane.   Sharp Hossa scare me the most.  Shaw is a good rat.  But hes no brad. 

    should be a great series.  Chicago isnt very physical.  Lets see if they pull a pitt who tried to out bruin us.

    Re: Rat vs. Rat

    Lineups are pretty similar. 

    As far as styles of play are concerend--I would put

    Krejci with Kane...both have great vision and are slick

    Toews with Bergeron...2 of the best all-around NHL players in the game

    Sharp with Horton...both can snipe with Horton being more physical

    Hossa with Jagr.....2 of the strongest guys "on the puck".  Hossa is a beast. 

    Chara with Keith....both lead on Defense but Chara is a better shutdown guy

    Looch with Bickel....both play with an edge and are big men

    Shaw with Marchand...For reason stated above--Shaw is coming in to his own; Marchand is more established and has way better vision

    I'm not going to say who has an edge here since if this was done with Pittsburgh, they would be way better on paper on the forward front.

    I will say that I like our supporting cast of forwards better with Seguin, Kelly, Peverley, Paille versus Saad and their periphery guys..and that is despite the loss of Campbell. 

    The supporting D is almost identical to ours...good puck movers and good skaters on both sides.  Rask will need to be as good as he was in the Ranger/Pitt series.  I don't think he will match his performances versus Pitt, but a repeat of the NYR is doable. 

     

    Luc Dufour was as tough as Nails.

    I agree on Hossa, and everytime Kane has the puck he is a threat. I think he has the best footwork in the league.

    Re: Rat vs. Rat

    So funny listening to all the homers on this board..if you really think Boston is deeper and more talented then the hawks I am going to come back after the series and repost all of this..there is a reason Chicago had 15 more points then Boston in the regular season in a clearly better conference.

    Re: Rat vs. Rat

    Pens have a better roster too,  and were 3-0 against the B's in the regular season.  That did them a lot of good this past week.

    if you want to hear people pumping the Hawks tires maybe you should log on to one of their discussion boards instead....

    Re: Rat vs. Rat

    Please don't compare pens to hawks. Completely different animal.

    listen I'm not saying Boston can't pull it out, as I do believe they are a great team. All I'm saying is the last thing you should be doing is saying B's in 4 or 5. It's laughable.

    I have read on this board today so far how CHara is better then Keith which that I agree with, Raask is better then CC..other then that you don't have an advantage anywhere and I have no dog in this fight. Saying B'S 4th line is better then HAwks is ridiculous..lmao. Bollard has 40 points in around 50 playoff games and is on the 4th line..Frolik has been a beast and is a 2x 20 goal scorer, again 4th line.. Kruger is very underrated.. Show some respect.

    Chicago is deeper with much more offensive ability. The pens team defense couldn't hold a candle to the hawks a zzz..as there 2nd ranked regular season defensive stats would indicate..

    And don't say B's are way bigger and will be too physical for them. That's exactly what the kings tried.. And before you go saying well Boston is bigger remember on average LA is the biggest team in the Nhl.

    Give me a break.  They're saying the same thing in Chicago.  Fans just want to believe their team will win.  Posting it here isn't going to make it happen. 

    And 4th lines rarely determine the outcome of a game. 

    Stick to football.

    bruins normally have 10 plus guys with double goal totals.  every team tries to out hit out tough the bruins.  Chicago is a skill team.  I respect them.  But they dont have any advantage over us.  The bruins have obvious advantages over the hawks.

    Never said that.  Both teams can play physical, no argument from me.
