The Sharks had no answer for Byfuglien all series long. Nabokov got no help from his defenders. Heatley was invisible in Chicago.

I look for them to use Blake's money to make a play for a guy like Volchenkov in the summer.

Doubt that. Read an article on TSN where Volchenkov looks like he's heading to DC to play with Ovie and Semin.

It's weird that they've got a guy like Murray and they really didn't match him up against Buff. It would like us using Blum when we've got Weber.

Nabokov has probably played his last game for SJ as well.

Defense Anyone

Game 1 of the Cup finals is making me appreciate Trotz's "responsible" hockey. Defense anyone????

Scott "Ice Yetti" Hartnell

I'm going to see Phish a couple times this year and they're doing a two night run in Philly/Camden and I'm gonna rep my Preds Hartnell jersey.

Wow, what a brutally soft goal to lose the cup on.

Much has been made of Philly's "they're fine\no they're not" goaltending, but ultimately, it's what cost them the series. A real shame, especially after Hartnell's goal to tie it up late.

To make matters worse, Patrick Kane of all people scores the game winner. Too bad.

Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane make such a stark contrast.

Even if they managed to win this game, the Flyers weren't going to take the Cup. They were spent. You could see it in the way their defense moved sluggishly all over the ice. Timonen nearly got beaten to a puck by Byfuglien despite having a good three steps on him.

.
But what if they spent Progner's money on a goaltender? Their strategy turned out better than 28 other NHL teams.

Wonder what Philly would have given us for Ellis, Hamhuis, and our 1st last offseason?

I feel bad for Hartnell and Timonen. I still like them.

But I was rooting for Chicago. I really didn't like Kane during our series, but I was happy to see him score. And I loved Byfuglien during the playoffs.

Congratulations Chicago!!

And the only team who gave Chicago trouble was Nashville.


Anyone else sick of seeing the eventual Stanley Cup winner/Representative in the first round?

There are 14 teams which hate 16 team. Within those 16 teams are many layers of hate which lead to all of them hating just one team.

This is the only year I thought we legitimately should have advanced, and this is despite thinking Chicago is the better team. We had them at checkmate, and we still found a way to lose in probably the worst sport loss/melt down I have ever witnessed. Ah well......Congrats to a very good team.

Did anyone find the officiating in the game atrocious? It seemed like the second call on Pronger was punishment for his whining after the first call. And after the Hawks scored on that PP, there was a makeup call almost immediately on Seabrook, even though his contact was significantly more benign than his flinging a prone and relatively defenseless Leino into the boards a little earlier.

And then there was a very quick call in the second, I think it was, after the Flyers used the Hartnell/Keith contact to create a 2 on 0. The refs missed it and didn't call anything (they shouldn't have). But after Keith's compliaint, immediately called a penalty on Coburn.

I'm not saying it had an effect on the overall outcome, but it's a bit frustrating that NHL officiating is such an art as opposed to more of a science. Call me crazy but I like my officials to have a firm grasp on the rulebook and be less concerned with situational officiating. It's why it's so hard to truly curb obstruction. It still occurs en masse, but because it's so sporadically enforced, no one learns or adapts.

Regardless, congrats to the Hawks.

It was bad ending to game 5, but no where near one of the worst. The most recent example of an truly epic meltdown was the Boston/Philly series.

Can you imagine what this board would have been like if we had the Bruins collapse?

I am speaking in a stand alone context. The way we lost the game was inexplicable. The Boston/Philly series as a whole is obviously on a different level in terms of melt-down, right up there with the Bos/NYY baseball series.

I understand. Someone screwed up just like the Sharks did losing the game to the Avs with the puck going off the d-man's skate. Granted, ours was a little stupider but, if Erat's pass hadn't glanced off the bottom of the net, might it have been different?
