....are the twin LeBrons of the NHL.
It's pretty obvious that badly timed injuries to key players and the Rome suspension(which would not have been 4 games if the inept and inconsistent NHL had given Burrows 1 game for the 'nibbling' incident) played a critical roll in the Bruins winning the Cup. Unfortunately that is hockey. I would say similarly that the injury to Kopitar played a key roll in the Kings losing in the 1st round this year. Pointing out the obvious/truth isn't making excuses.
I wasn't really rooting for your team Crunker, but you have my condolences. Buck up though buddy, Pittsburgh had to lose before they won. Perhaps next year is your year... well... not next year, the Kings are winning next year... but you can have 2014.
You could argue that they aren't built to handle getting beaten physically like they did in the playoffs. The Bruins did it this year, the Hawks the last 2 and almost this year. Any half talented team that plays a physical game gives the Canucks trouble. It also explains why they had a hard time against us last year and not such a hard time against the Sharks this year.
