They faced no adversity from the time Crosby got back from his ankle injury to now. Kinda hard to get too jacked for that. But a cup win will see them acting jubilant no doubt.

7-0 win for Detroit in game 7...

No doubt, but he was also victimized by some bad bounces.

Still, the Habs played well enough that their goaltending should not have been a factor if they'd buried at anything approaching a normal rate. The Penguins not so much, but their victory over the Flyers was never in doubt.

What doesn't pain me is that tons of people were ready to called Fleury a bust.....seeing how he finally responded makes me think that people should just be a little bit more patient with goalies.

Though, it is great to see the board without all that terrible looking orange. I hated feeling like I was in the Flyers board.

I know. But especially goalies. Even the ones that were suppose to be God....

The whole thing with AKost, and I may have been part of that a little, I admit, was moreso the fact that most guys chosen after him was already doing their thing. His play mixed with other draftees play, and that's the recipe for panic mode....

Because they have too much talent ?


They are exactly what NHL needs. A spectacular, successful team.

So I'm excited to see whether Montreal will develop at a faster rate than Pittsburgh or not next year.
That said, the fact that you're always so down on the Habs and their players as well as team Canada kind of pisses me off a little.



Hot. This will be entertaining.
There is a huge difference between being "down" and being "realistic"

The Canadiens is my favourite team. But I can see its flaws, and can appreciate other teams qualities.

After the game, Sid and the Penguins did not touch the Wales trophy and they did not touch or wear the Eastern Conference Champion hats or tee-shirts. They said it's not their goal and nothing to celebrate, their focus is on the ultimate prize, the only one that matters.

I thought it was a jinx to touch the trophy and celebrate winning it?

That's what they say, it's been happening for awhile that teams that win their conference finals won't touch the trophy.

I think I even saw that in a NHL video game, but I don't know which one.

Ottawa didn't touch the trophy last year and they lost maybe Crosby should have made out with it.

I'm no CBA expert but there a offer sheet salary/draft pick compensation scheme for RFA. That scheme is in some way related to the salary cap IIRC.

Offer Sheet Salary/ Compensation *Not real numbers but you get the idea...
From $ 1 to 2- = 3rd pick
From $ 2 to 3- = 2rd pick
From $ 3 to 4- = 1st pick
From $ 4 to 5- = 1st pick + 2nd pick + 3rd pick
From $ 5+ = 4 1st picks

As you can see, the more $ you offer an RFA, the bigger return you have to pay in order to get him from his team if his team doesn't match your offer.

Ex.: The Montreal Canadiens have to sign RFA Andrei Kostitsyn.
Let's say that the Minnesota Wild are really interested in Andrei Kostitsyn and are willing to offer him 5M$/year for 6 years.
2 possibilities. Either the Habs don't match the Wild's offer and lose Andrei Kostitsyn to the them and get 4 1st round pick in return or they match the offer submitted by the Wild and have to pay Andrei Kostityn 5M$/year for 6 years.
