Its ok to show some confidence but i don't know if i would have went that far.We'll see soon enough if Kadri knows something i don't. B's will prevail according to me, its a very, very winnable series according to me as well.
I think if he had said something along the lines of "if we play our game and play hard I am confident we can win" then it would be fine.
But to have a rookie who has never played a single second of NHL playoff hockey spout off about how "very, very winnable this series is", especially against a team that just won the cup 2 seasons ago and has beaten his team 3 out of 4 games in the regular season, is just stupid on his part.
Let the coaches and vets handle the media dear boy...
I agree with much of what you said. However, the Bruins and many here are preaching that past results in the playoffs and regular season don't matter. It's a new season. Everyone starts with 0 and needs 16 to win the cup. The kid is confident, as well he should be, as he has 3 goals 4 assists in 8 games against the B's and is +4. He and Grabovski fair well against the Bruins and need to be held in check.
well put, MeanE.... maybe the kid used one "very" too many.... if it turns out to be fodder for the B'S, that's great....
what did they expect Kadri to say, "we stand no chance against this B'S juggernaut"?....
