Who is taking heat for enjoying the run.
I enjoyed the run.
Everyone enjoyed the run.
That doesn't mean losing in 6 was a big deal. Think Edmonton thinks back fondly to Pronger leading 'em to a Game 7 loss? Nah, they boo his ass for asking out of town the next year. What's that SCF appearance doing for Ottawa?
Shafer opined that it was a "big deal" to win the ECF... it's not. That tournament isn't about winning the ECF or WCF, which is why you have that whole tradition of showing disdain for the relevant trophy.
It's not like I celebrated either, but most of the folks who would show up for a Flyers Stanley Cup win nowadays are looking for an excuse to miss school or work. It ain't about the team.
A completely irrelevant point to any discussion you are going to have with folks on this board.
