I would love to see my Wings make a long run. It would be a great story given the injuries they have gone through this year:

I doubt Jimmy Howard has the goods to make it happen. Their back end is suspect (has been since Nik left) and Jimmy is just too inconsistent.

I think he's solid, but not good enough to steal games. The back end is weak, especially if Ericson cannot play. My hope is the speed of the young guys keep Boston playing in their end more. Chara is very overrated IMO. That guy has no speed at all. He's very solid when the play is prolonged in the zone, but in open ice he is exposed by quicker players.

Someone is not a fan of advanced metrics I see...
Chara faced the strongest competition of any elite D and yet still drove play in the other direction at all times. He and Bergeron are the prime reason that Boston is the possession monster that they are, as both have ridiculous Corsi numbers despite starting predominantly in the defensive zone.
Going by advanced metrics they should both be locks for the Norris and Selke, though Chara didn't put up enough assists to get it (cause clearly more assists indicates superior defensive play!)

The metrics may favor him, but every game I have seen of his in the last two years he gets schooled in open ice. He just excels at 'half court' defense IMO. Just because he has great numbers doesn't mean he can't be exposed. Nyquist did that earlier this year. It's like watching a LT try to get out wide on a blitzing corner.

Mylor, if Price keeps playing like he did in game 1 they'll be lucky to win four games let alone four series.

I have to agree with Chris though in that I think most people thought the Bruins were going to roll Detroit so winning game 1 proves its not as clear cut as people think

Sharpe -

Boston losing game 1 is not good. Regardless of being game 1.

Boston needs to beat these teams not dilly dally and play 6/7 game series everytime. It will bite them in their ass sooner or later.

When did i yap? I never even predicted a winner. All i said was Chara is overrated, gave reasons why, and they showed in game 1. I would have picked Boston in 7 before the series started and i am not sure i will change that just yet

Losing a series? Want to turn it around? It's easy... just take out the opposing team's captain with a flying shoulder to the head! Or their best defenseman with an intentional kneeing.

What a surprise that the two teams struggling in their series take out important opposing players and are suddenly alive again in the series!
