Well, I'm so very happy for the 4 or 500 people in Anaheim who actually care about hockey. And the other 50 who actually know who Anaheim is playing

That's what irks me so - not that the Cup isn't returning to Canada but that the Cup is going to a place where people could not care less about the sport.Even if I hated the Sens, I could never want to see the Cup in a market where people shun a sport I love so much.
It's not about love for my country, it's about love for the sport.

It's three times now that these southern states win and it's been proven now that winning the Cup won't make the sport more popular in the U.S. Give up already Bettman!

How many people will show up for the Stanley Cup parade? Will it be around the parking lot again a la Tampa and Carolina?

/Rant over

Congratulations to a team who deserved it though.

It'll be nice to see Selanne and Niedermayer with the Cup...

I feel bad for Chris Philips, that has got to suck...

Pretty mighty! The cup found its way to the team with the most heart and class

I feel badly for Ottawa's fans, including the ones here...maybe next year they'll put it all together.

I'll admit, this is a lame excuse for posting a random image of the greatest athlete ever, but Anahiem's map to the Stanley Cup officially started here:

I actually burst out crying when they showed the Sens after their loss. I surprised myself!

Wow, did the Sens play like CRAP in this series. Total and utter crap. I don't think Alfie should be traded but the likes of Spezza and Heatley don't step up when needed...

On the French channel (RDS), they showed Selanne crying on his Dad. Wow, that was emotional.

This time next year I'll be living in Toronto. Too bad I won't be able to experience this ever again.


(repeat joke I know, but I couldn't resist!)

AngelorDevil - greatest athlete ever? Hmmm, I don't have my contacts in but that doesn't look like Mario Lemieux to me

I was on the phone to my sister during the game tonight, and she was saying how she'd love to take me and our mom to a playoff final in Toronto. I asked her if this was some sort of ten-year plan

Selanne was so emotional, like you say...I think the image I saw was with his kid

And I thought it was just the Ottawa players who didn't see straight

@ your entire post

Well, T.O. isn't that far from Montreal or Ottawa - surely that's what she meant?

Just read Alfie was the playoff leader with 14 goals. Don't think they'll be trading him any time soon. He didn't step up in the past but he was dynamite during their playoff run (despite his moronic shot on Niedermayer)

Congrats to the Ducks.
They truly deserved the cup and so many great players on that team. Even one from the maritimes, so Lord Stanley should be returning up here quite a bit. I'm also really proud of JS Giguere. He was the goalie with our old AHL team and he led us to the Calder Cup. Great guy!

Ottawa really sucked tonight. Really sucked. I know I praised Alfie before in this thread but that slapshot thing he did in the previous game really ticked me off. He's the captain, a leader who is supposed to set an example. Well, so much for that. Send him packing!

Congrats to the Sens for choking once again!

Well another NHL season is done and the Ducks are California's first Cup winner. I'm so glad they don't call them the Mighty Ducks anymore. See ya next year.

Anaheim is mighty indeed. A well deserved victory for a strong team.

The Sens were outclassed and outworked from the drop of the first puck. Interesting stat mentioned last night, the Ducks led games 1 and 2 for a total of 8 minutes. The Sens didn't have a calming influence on the ice nor on the bench to guide them through the toughest moments in the game. They just didn't respond in the critical moments while Anaheim overcame.

Alfredsson should give up the C because numbers aren't the sole criteria in determining success as a captain of an NHL team. Teemu Selanne said it best, it's how your weakest players on your team raise their game in key situations. Great leaders inspire others and achieve success as a team, not necessarily as individuals. Alfredsson fails in this regard. He is hardly as Muckler foolishly suggested "Messierlike".

See ya next playoffs, maybe. It was pretty dull this year compared to some years.

Watching the Sens last night had a very familiar feeling...

I can't quite put my finger on it

Their play reminded me of another team...

It's on the tip of my tounge...

You're right but if the city's opinion has any bearing on this then Alfie will be here for a looong time as Ottawa is quite taken with him (not in years past but definitely this year).

I don't think there will be any major restructuring with this team either as most people + media in Ottawa consider their season a successful one, despite their collapse in this latest series.
