They could sign Lecavalier, Crosby, Ovechkin, Niedermayer, Chara, and Luongo this offseason and those fans STILL wouldn't be happy.

I guess I shouldn't have worried. The Bruins absolutely dominated this series. I'm liking their chances now.

Until they face a team with shooters - seriously, did Tim Thomas make even one glove save?
(Or maybe he didn't need to against Montreal )

But yes, the better team won, as much as it pains me to say it.

Okay, now I can root for my birthcity:

GO CANUCKS!!!

The Habs are going to be cellar dwellers in the East for years. This team has absolutely imploded, on the scale of what happened to the Senators in 2008, except with the added insult of half the team breaking for free agency this summer.

Oh, and Carey Price is terrible and should never be a starter again for any team.

I'm glad the two remaining Canadian teams are not only teams that I can actually root for (I can't bring myself to cheer for any of the Eastern teams), but teams that I actually like and stand a reasonable shot at doing well, although if Anaheim holds off the Sharks (and barring a miracle for the Blue Jackets), it's going to be a Vancouver-Calgary series in round 2. Either way, I haven't felt this good about the chances of the Cup coming back to Canada in a very long time

I'm 100% behind Vancouver coming out of the west, if not Vancouver then Calgary.

As for the East, if the Rangers hang on and the stinkin' Pens finish my team off I have no idea who to root for in the Canes/Pens series. Probably a neverending overtime, or the apocalypse. Gun to my head, I guess I'd root for the Pens but feel really dirty about it.

Haven't you ever seen Thomas play before? Guy flops around like a dying fish...

And yeah, that was painful to watch, even for me - it was like watching a Leaf game only I think our fans are nicer (or have lower expectations)

Well the CAR-NJ series is tied 2-2 so you're kinda getting a little ahead of yourself. No need to go out and build a bomb shelter just yet

Very true...I just totally flaked out there and forgot all about the very-much-alive Devils. Oops.

Well, that was harsh.

Like I said earlier, this team will look radically different next season. Will they make a quick turnaround like Boston when they had only 8 players signed three years ago, or will they become bottom dwellers for the forseeable future?

Am I the only one who still laughs when I see a headline like "Pens turn to Satan for Game 5, bench Sykora" on ESPN's home page?

Nope, I chuckled when I saw that headline too.

Man, totally sucks getting swept but zomg, it was a hell of a game. I have no voice today. I'm so proud of my boys! The Wings shows my boys how to really play in the second season and I hope they took copious notes because I want more of that intense, north/south hockey all next season and beyond.

Totally disapproved the throwing crap on the ice. Chant bullsh!t all you want, boo the zebras, but please don't throw crap on the ice! It was so very bush league & embarrassing.

And that too many men on the ice call with 1:34 left in the 3rd that induced much rage in the home crowd was the right thing to call. As much as I hate to type this, it could not not have been called. Such a boneheaded move by Modin to even touch the puck when Voracek was skating to the bench right in front of his line of sight. Ugh!

Go Ducks go!

The Ducks

I think I'm going to have to change my definition of choke to San Jose though, I don't know what it is with these guys but they never seem to be able to get it done in the post season

I love all the long series

Anaheim, Calgary, Washington, Jersey, and Philly will be your winners.

I was at that game, I could couldn't hear myself think it was so loud!!!!
I was at the arena about 2 hours before game time, and there were already a ton of people outside!! I'm a huge Wings fan, so I was wearing the enemy jersey, but didn't get harassed like I thought I might. Just had someone say something about hiding an octopus in my purse!

Not as many Wings fans as normal either, which is a good thing. I usually have no issue getting a very good seat for Wings/Jackets games in the regular season down there. I want them to make it harder for me! The arena is great, the team is getting better, hopefully the attendance starts to go back-up next season.
I wish

Glad to see someone knows it was the right call, everything I've read has been "they should have let it go" etc. Fans should be pissed at Modin, not the refs.

I'm just glad the series is over, I can wear my Blue Jackets jerseys again. I got my ticket to that game the day they went on sale. I didn't think they'd play Detroit, I figured it would be Vancouver.

You really see the Flames coming back and winning the final two games against the Hawks? Including the (potential) game 7 in Chicago? I don't know if I see that happening. Maybe because it would be so incredibly disappointing if it did.

Liz, so you're one of thooose people... j/k

When that penalty was called, yea, I was pissed then I realized what had happened and got pissed at Freddy Mo. Damn shame how that game ended the way it did. Probably wouldn't have helped if they hadn't called it. Who knows, eh? Best of luck to your winged wheels! If they keep playing like they did, they'll go quite far! Hopefully Ozzie rests up that leg of his. You could tell he was struggling in the 2nd.

Sounds like you didn't get harassed and had a good time at Nationwide, which is great to hear! There were 2 Wings fans sitting next to me and it was fun slinging shots back and forth but we were cool about it. Other folks around us though were a bit more brutal. It was nice to not see a sea of red there. Not know who we'd be matched up against really helped with the lack of red.

How about them Rangers, eh? What the hell is happening? Totally imploding. Avery is Avery & Torts is, well Torts. Can't blame him going ape sh!t after getting a beer dumped on him, though. That kind of crap doesn't have a place anywhere in sports. King Henry isn't cutting it anymore and their offense & defense is going down the drain.
