In response to adkbeesfan's comment:
red, i'm certain of nothing. i never said go put your life savings on the bruins. my issue(however trivial) is with those that are content with being conference finalists and those betting against a bruin victory... it's quitting in the middle of the race. it's been said before, but it's a defense mechanism. if the boston bruins play to the level they are capable (offensively, defensively, and in goal), it won't matter what the other team does, whether it's pitt, ny, tor, la, sj, chi, or det. didn't we all learn this two years ago? it's essentially the same team, with the obvious exception of TT. i'm sorry for the rant, it just kills me to hear all the doubt among bruins fans. two years ago was different for me, to be honest a small part of me was probably content on a series final appearance. but after seeing them win it, and having pretty much the same team- WHY NOT WIN IT AGAIN!!!!
I'm as positive as positive can be. I'm the fool who started the threads about spanking the Caps and had the B's winning every game vs. TOR and NYR.
This Pitt team is a different story. I'm still very hopeful that they roll, but I'm not confident that they will. Time will tell. The good news is that we're discussing this in a objective light, not a gloom and doom SoxfaninIL/Assfingered approach. The better news is that no matter what we discuss, it will have no affect on the actual game.
This is the Conference Finals. I'm thrilled they got this far. I hope they go much further and there is another parade. I'm not sure if it will happen because this Pitt team is no joke, but hey, I hope it does.
Yea -- NAS -- you had me shaking my head on the "why the Bruins will sweep the Caps" post. I was pretty leery between the B's playoff record vs unknown goalies in addition to Green and Backstrom returning from injury. Totally ok since my only prediction ever for a sweep was 2 years ago when the Habs came into the Garden and took the first 2 games of the opening round. I even cheated by not making the prediction until after the second game. We all know how that playoff year ended.
I'm cautiously optimistic vs Pens. B's won against all odds 2 years ago so we all know anything is possible.
