Dear Boston Fans:
What a series! It was definitely a great year for both teams, Boston winning the Presidents trophy, and the Wings for getting healthy for the playoffs, and keeping all the games with Boston except for Game 2 close. The Bruins are one of the true franchises of the league, along with the Rangers, Hawks, Habs, and Leafs (Plus my Wings) and it was great to watch the rivalry come back to life. It was great to be able to watch every playoff game for the Wings this year with us playing in the East. With that, I'd like to get a little more specific.
Tukka Rask was definitely the player of the series. He is an outstanding goalie and probably the best in the league right now. Can't wait to see him go up against Carey Price.
Zdeno Chara is also at the top of the league for his position. He managed to help stop the Wings from playing the speed game, and the size won, clearly. He is also a great Power Play guy, and he managed to play clean clean the whole series, so great for him.
Patrice Bergeron is a great Center, and is a great player, and community member, plus he plays clean also, which is nice to see in the NHL. One of the most deserving players to be playing this game, and seeing him love it is great for hockey.
Dougie Hamilton/Krug are future stars. They're going to be top defenseman and they both play good 2 way hockey, are very clutch, and are going to be key to long playoff runs this year and beyond. Great job by Chiarelli finding these guys. They're great.
Overall, it was a fun series, a great way to spend my Spring Break, and it was a good time to be a fan of either team.
I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the playoffs, as well as the offseason, and we will see you guys in September I believe for the preseason.
P.S No Bankrupt responses please! Thanks! :)
Sincerely, A Wings Fan
