To those who think Braden Holtby is the man of the hour or Dale Hunter is a great coach you're all wrong. Holtby nor Hunter's system beat the Bruins, last year's playoffs did them in. They played 25 post season games, including a grinding 7 game final that forced them to travel 23,000 miles. A brutal playoff run like that was bound to catch up to them, both physically and mentally. I'm not the least surprised that the Bruins and Canucks went out in the first round. However the Bruins are far from done, they are still in their prime with some good prospects about to enter the lineup. Barring any serious injuries, this team is going to win another Cup before a rebuild. The B's will be back in Cup contention Boo sooner than later.
