The big upsets are usually all in round 1, and I'm not really basing my psychological well-being on how far they go, post season.
I like the recent moves. I think the team has good overall balance. I like the fact that this team has the league's best, team defense, arguably the leagues hottest goalie. I like the fact that only 4 other teams in the entire league have done better offensively, and I like the fact that this record has been compiled over the peaks and valley's of 5 months, not 5 games.
There are 16 teams going to the playoffs. Absolute worst case....the B's would have to be considered top 5 on any reasonable hockey critics list.
That puts them solidly in the cup hunt...but playoff hockey is fickle. Inuries happen, one team can spike, their opponent can falter....just long enough to cause an upset....and then it's over.
Ive been a Bruin fan for over 44 years. This years version, has provided more "mindless entertainment" than many.
I'm happy about that, and see no reason whatsover....especially right now....to "expect" an early ouster.
