Explain the logic. If you draw blood, four minutes. But if you knock out a tooth only 2 minutes.
The only HW the Canucks need

Lol for fuck sakes Chara the league owes you another 4000 pim for interference, crosschecking, holding and hooking. If they called half the fouls on him that they should he’d be out of the league.

Bruins looked slow and gave up a lot of breakaways.
Chara looks useless.

Toronto has more talent.

I only caught the last 15 minutes, but what I saw was a bunch of unforced tunovers at the Leaf blueline by Boston. A few good bounces in front of the net for the Leaves kept Boston from burying some garbage, but Toronto definitely has more weapons throughout the lineup when it comes to scoring.

Boston didn't play Bruin hockey though, and they have to. They don't have the speed to play the same game as Toronto. From this game it seems they need to physically wear down guys like Nylander, Marner, Gardiner, and Reilly to win.

I agree with this. Cassidy tried his "Fast" lineup and it was still far too slow. They can't match Leaves speed and overall skill, You'll see a change next game.
The one thing that's clear is Toronto was not taking the regular season very seriously (I always said they had another gear).

Chara was doing his best Nikita Zaitsev regular season impression.
