But mattbs, this is why you're getting crap for being so reactionary and sounding foolish
On April 20th you said:
We got nothing...

Against a Pittsburg team with the likes of the hated cook, db igilna and jokinen with no Crosby and Malkin and yet I see nothing positive in the Bruins. On a Our captain is not intimadating, goaltening is mediocre, heart is non exisitent, skill is mediocre, dumb insignificant penalties at key points, no snipers, slow defense, we don't win fights, a coach who looks like he is putting lines together like he is drawing straws and the "most feared" power forward in the press box.
How can the fans keep remaining positive?
Then on May 15th, you say:
I agree for the most part. I gave the forth line a little higher marks because I think they mostly outplayed the Leafs fourth line and did their job well as far as hitting and keeping the puck in the offensive zone.
Defence ....Chara A Boychuck B Siedy B- Ferrence C MacQuaid C
Centre..... Campbell B Krejci A Bergy B (Game 7 A+) Kelly C- Peverly D+ Marchand C+ Seguin C+
LW....Looch B+ (Game 7 A++) Thorton B Paille B+
RW...Jagr C+ Horton B
So, suddenly (in 25 days!) Rask went from mediocre to getting an 'A'. Chara is suddenly an 'A'. You went from seeing "nothing positive in the Bruins" to giving half of them As and Bs. For the people here that saw this team as largely the same a month ago as it is now, it's hard not to object to your emotional swings and reactionary whims.
This is the same team we saw in April, and instead of writing them off before and during the playoff series, you could just have a little faith and root for them to win. There are people who saw this victory coming, but you make it less fun here by dumping your 'sky-is-falling' misery on everybody, only to admit afterwards that there are plenty enough As and Bs on this team to win.
