McKenzie: Beware of good teams who had bad years

Some quick thoughts from the NHL on TSN on Monday night:

If the NHL playoffs teach you one thing it is this: beware of good teams that had bad years.  The Boston Bruins certainly fit in to that group.

At the beginning of the season, a lot of people thought that the Bruins would challenge for the Presidents trophy, but their good players did not have very good years.  David Krejci struggled coming off hip surgery but played well on Monday with a couple of goals and one assists.  Milan Lucic did not have a very good year as he dealt with injury concerns, but he had a couple of assists in Game 6.

When the Boston Bruins couldn't score goals in the middle of the season, they went out and signed Miroslav Satan.  I remember when I 'tweeted' that the Bruins had signed Satan and there was an avalanche of people saying 'what a terrible signing' and 'this guy is awful,' and 'are you kidding?  That's embarrassing.' 

With two game-winning goals in this series, Satan got the last laugh.

Look at the Flyers' Mike Richards as another example. His leadership was questioned all year yet he was lights out in the first round upset of the New Jersey Devils.  Remember - beware of good teams that had bad years.
