Don't forget Pavelec. I think they have good young prospects at important positions. They have a better foundation than Phoenix, in my opinion.

Someone like Bryzgalov, for example, will not be in Phoenix next season.

Yeah but there's a big difference between prospects and foundational/young players. Neither Pavelec nor Bryzgalov are prospects, nor are they a part of their prospect pool.

I guess it's fair to say guys like Evander Kane and OEL are still 'prospects'. They're just developing/being rushed in the NHL.

Atlanta has shit for a prospect pool. The same cannot be said for Phoenix.

This is all okay though, because for the first time the Florida Panthers have arguably the strongest prospect pool in the NHL. Of course, that doesn't mean crap if we can't develop them properly.

Man, that goal with just a few seconds left in regulation was awesome!! OT stresses the hell outta me, though!

I know it's not do or die tonight, but it really feels like it.

They lucked out when the linesman missed the fact the puck went off Sedin. It shouldn't have been icing, but them's the breaks.

Congrats, Sharon!

Since 1993, every (current) Canadian-based team has made it to the Finals at least once - except for one.

I hope it always stays that way.

Thanks guys. I'm totally not ashamed to admit I cried when the puck went in the net. It's been so long, and I'm so unbelievably excited. The last time we were in the finals I was 14, and it was the first year I was a diehard fan. I don't really have the words. I knew they'd be able to get this far, but it hasn't totally sunk in yet.

San Jose put up a hell of a fight.

Damn right you're not ashamed to admit that! I think that we often forget, because sportswriters and fans are such negative douches so often....that sports are or should be a source of joy....and you got a huge does of that tonight. Awesome.

Gonna be a fun Stanley Cup (assuming Tampa loses. Please?).

Filled with former Panthers, too.

The more I think about it, the more I'd root for Vancouver because I want Nathan Horton to burn slowly (and it's personal, he's a douchebag). Don't ever put a ring on that god damn finger, please.

It wasn't a sweep like I wanted, but at least San Jose fails again

I'll be wanting Vancouver to win unless Tampa wins the East.

Interesting that San Jose could never get Joe Thornton to play like the awesome player he is in the playoffs, so they always had an early exit.

And now Joe Thornton is playing like the awesome player he is in the playoffs. And they still lose.

Wow. I just lost years off my life watching that one. I decided against listening live and I had to work out and about today..and let me tell you boy was hard to avoid spoilers. I'm sure that win means a lot more to you Sharon

With all those shots, the law of averages says San Jose win....but NO WAY SAN JOSE!!!
