I can sit here and agree with you that TOR played a much better game 2 than game 1. I can also agree that consistency is an issue for TOR. I again agree that it's a larger issue than physicality. That doesn't mean they're not soft...because they are. I'd also tell you that you're flat out dreaming if you think Game 2 is the "standard" for TOR. You're not as bad as your worst game...You're not as good as your best game. IMO...Game 2 was indeed one of the better games TOR has played all year long. They're not THAT good a team overall. That game could have been 5-0.

I specifically said "NOT the 225+ bruiser". I'm not talking about hits. I'm talking about getting moved off the puck too easily. Not winning enough board battles. I know EXACTLY what you mean because this was EXACTLY what Blackhawks fans (my fan base) said during their cup runs. Their opponents always out hit them because they always had the puck. BUT the Hawks didn't get moved off the puck like TOR does. When CHI was winning it seems like everytime they went to the boards...the Hawks came away with the puck. Matthews is a stud and I can't really say much on him, but Tavares isn't exactly dominating anyone.</div></div>

The toughness the team needs is guys like Matthews fighting through extra checks and elevating his game. Same with Nylander, Marner, Rielly and the rest. Which at times they have in the past wilted a little but not now. That game was a good one for TO but they can still be better. They are still getting back into form. They are way better than you give them credit for.
