The Boston bruins in their final postseason appearance this season against the Montreal Canadians was the cheapest team in hockey. They even turned normally good natured, hard working people like Jerome Iginla into cheap shotting pigs. But there is other people who big to differ and say that that's just how they play. As Boston may be the biggest team in the league, but that does not give them any excuse to cheap shot anybody. Just because you get mad you do not have the right to hurt other player and potentially end their hockey careers.
The Boston bruins players were squirting water bottles and starting fights. If your a thirteen year old then that's fine to do harmless things like that. But when its your job to keep your cool and to show respect to your opponents.
I would also like to add that they cannot take what they're giving. Ever time that they would get hit. They'd act like every time that a hit happened on them, it was the dirtiest thing ever, but if the equivalent was to happen to the Canadians, its a clean hit everytime.
And to put the cherry on top, Milan lucic cant even say good series to his opponents. He has to make threats to their life and get them worried about their life. I mean cmon. Thats a new low i haven't seen before. But what are you goanna do if your dealing with the cheapest team in hockey.

I would be glad to accept your challenge. As for dirty teams we just have to look as far as the Canadiens themselves.

The canadiens were just defending themselves using clean hits. How could the bruins win any other way besides injuring all of the other team. Everyone from the cheapestof the cheap, matt cooke to normally sensible jerome Iginla.

I didn't know high hits that break peoples jaw's were considered "clean" hits. Also at least the Bruins have enough respect that they will drop the gloves if a player from the other team doesn't like there rough style of play. Last the cheapest team in hockey was the 1974-1975 Flyers. Thanks to them rules like the third man in penalty came into existence. What they would do was they would have there star player Bobby Clarke do anything to get under a players skin. Then when the player reacted they would have every player get over to the fight and knock the snot out of the player who hit Bobby. Now that right there is messed up, and on top of that they ended up winning the cup because they beat the crap out of every team they played.

The flyers are not a very dirty team. The 74-75 team is not a part of the nhl right now, and even if they were, they at least had the skills to scire goals and win a stanley cup. Something the bruins do not.

Explain to me how this is not a clean hit (http://m.youtube.com...) (first fifteen seconds) stepan had the puck then passed it. He only took to strides and prust hit him with his shoulder. He got two game because it was constituded as interference. Plus stepan ended up being fine because he returned to game 5 and scored two goals. While crosby took 13 games to come back from his broken jaw which was much worse.
The bruins will drop the gloves. Another reason why they are an extremely cheap team. The canadiens wont drop the gloves because theyre a skilled team and dont have a need to drop the gloves. Unless somebody else challenges them and only then do they defend their honor. They dont pick fights because they have more skill which they would rather use.
Again. The 74-75 flyers arent a part of the nhl right now.
So what you have told me was that the canadiens are the cheapest team in the nhl because they injured one guy.
