In response to shuperman's comment:
I love that Neil knows his role. Hes there to protect his teammates. and he did just that. Kudos to lucic for going with Neil. Neil went after him earlier as well. Neil is gonna go bonkers on the habs. Wish we had him on our 3rd line. Orr and co wouldnt get a free pass.
Thornton can't hang with Orr and McLaren. They'll put him next to Savard on LTIR.
I'm not I sure I agree Nas. Orr really leads with his head and is prone to getting tagged. Orr isn't a defensive fighter, he goes out there and wants to swing for the fences and he's been tagged more then a few times, but he's also landed some big punches too. McClaren is good when he uses his huge reach, but he's been tagged a few times too.
I think Thorton can hold his own provided he doesn't go toe to toe. Orr and McClaren are pure fighters and they'll lose their share. Thorton is more tactical and if he can tie up the other guy he'll do okay.
I don't think the fighting is going to be an issue. Orr and McClaren helps the other guys from getting intimidated by the Bruins which have been in the past.
I actuall think the best fighter on the Leafs is Fraser. He's our version of your McQuaid.
Bruins have more depth when it comes to the physical play.
I agree with Shup on Neil, though. Hate his guts but wish the Leafs had him. I think Ottawa will take Montreal in 6 or 7 games.
