I really doubt Savard ever comes back to play hockey again. I'll be happy to be wrong, but I just don't see it. But yes the Bruins should come back relatively intact. Marchand is rfa and Ryder is UFA. But nobody would miss Ryder. On defense just Kaberle and Hnidy are UFAs I think this was a tight series, obviously, where the difference was the Canucks wore down and collapsed physically (really shot themselves not closing out Chicago) and Luongo literally collapsed for all three road games. The Canucks had more high end skill, but when the minutes added up and they didn't produce the third liners were, with the exception of games 1 and 2 not able to pick it up. The Sedins also have real question marks as they were complete non factors in every series with a decent shutdown pair. San Jose was the only team that didn't. Boston the other hand didn't really have any stars except Thomas and Chara. But they rolled four solid good lines. Their 3rd and 4 th ate most other teams lower lines for breakfast. They also were able to spread minutes out. So while the Sedins and Kesler maxed out, the Bruins were fresher and were able to keep it going all the way till the end. They left vancouvers blueline in shambles by tonight. None of that was enough though. In the end boston s depth was only enough to match Vancouvers skill. In the Tim Tjomas simply said thou shalt not pass, and Luongo only showed up for three games. That gave Boston the slight edge.
