Maybe another Isles team (or another underdog) can pull a similar upset in the future and Carey Price can duplicate Patrick Roy's blaze of glory.
At least I can dream about it.
Ya, nice part about dreaming is..............it doesn't cost you anything!
You were right about the underdog Habs winning a Cup that they were not supposed to - another team (Isles) upset (one of) the favourites -and Habs took advantage of it. Good for them!
Price & this edition of the Habs, have difficulty winnig a series, let alone a Cup!
Their next big step would be to win 2 series - in the same playoff year.
Fact is - in Gainey's 6 years at the helm, the Hbas have won a grand total of 2 playoff series -
Although, according to some HF Board members, that's just a case of bad luck and too many injuries (because.........no other team has injuries).
