Hell of a season man, hell of a season it just wasn't meant to be this year I guess, we're a team on the ups though for sure!
GO HABS GO! I won't forget what you've done for me this year, so much joy and this series was the only blackspot since October! I love everyone on this team and I just wish I could jump ahead to October...
I need some time to reflect and just chill now, this is a tough pill to swallow, a real tough one but I'll be okay in a few days I know it, tough man, damn... I guess I'll be watching the finals and cheering for Crosbaby. Never thought I would!
Great resurgence of the franchise. I'm looking forward to 08/09, and I can't wait to see Price as our goalie of the future. If not for some bad luck we would have won this series, but it wasn't meant to be. C'est la vie.
Despite the complaints of boos during the national anthem, I thought your fans were extremely classy in this series, and obviously appreciate your team as much as if not more than any other fan base. DC threw things on the ice after their loss, we probably would have done the same, booing, but you guys supported your team even when it was over, and I'll still love the Habs as my 2nd EC team. Congratulations on the great season, and boy, are those Kostys going to be good.
Despite being a lifelong Habs fan, I’m OK with this series 2 loss to the Flyers.
This should give Gainey an accurate idea of how much work he needs to do with this team-- and he has a ton of work ahead of himself.
First move: Find an experienced goalie who can play 50 to 60 games and give Price the opportunity to win the starting job instead of handing it to him. Price may be great some day but is not ready to handle the starting job at this time!
Oh, wait a minute, Gainey had an experienced goalie, but he traded him. That’s right, he also had Francois Beauchimen and Riberio and traded them away for nothing (Habs really didn‘t need those guys anyway)!!
Second move: Get rid of Patrice Brisebois and Francois Boullion. If these 2 guys are on the Habs roster next season they will not make the playoffs -- mark my words!
Then: Get some bigger and grittier forwards!

Thank you guys! You made me live outstanding emotions in this season. Definitely looking forward to the next season. A couple of players will not be here anymore. A couple of new guys will come up also.
And don't blame Price. He's young, and had a tough time, but will step up and he will grow stronger after this experience.
Guys, it was a pleasure. Thanks for making me feel welcome on your board, and thanks for a very intense and fun series. I know that we'll be seeing you next season, and based on the young talent on both of our teams I hope that it will be in the playoffs.
Thoroughly depressed right now. But I know it will only last a few days. Well, I never missed a game this season. It was really a fantastic year. Completely exceeded my expectations. We have a great group of young kids and lots to look forward to next season.
Time to retire the Habs jersey and hat for this year. Summer is here! Hope you all have a great one!
