Boston wins this hands down. No team with two or three guys doing all of the heavy lifting should even be mentioned here, that doesn't make the toughest "team" at all.
you left part of the thread title out. it's not just 'toughest team',it's toughest team '2013'. the bruins certainly haven't been plaing like the toughest team in 2013. if you base it on past seasons or how they stack up on paper then yeah,they may wing hands down. if you base it on actions in 2013 then they aren't in the running.
