The champion team is not necessarily the best team. This has happened to Montreal before, and it happened to Boston now.

Is Boston really better than Pittsburgh, do you think? Washington? Detroit? San Jose? Chicago? Seriously?

Do you think Montreal last year was better than Pittsburgh or Washington? Seriously?

The Stanley Cup is the tournament of small sample sizes. Small enough that anyone who makes it could win it. We keep saying "anything can happen" when the playoffs start, yet act shocked at the end when it does.
