Of course, Ruins is a good solid team but without little "favors", they might not be here now.
The old adage, you have to be lucky to be good and good to be lucky.

They won the Cup without Savard and without Horton for most of the final series. That's just good depth. While the Canucks are forced to play guys like Jeff Tambellini and Chris Tanev.

Take a peek at the Bruins board. Fans of all team feel the need to bend over and lick their feet. Priceless.

As someone who lives between NYC and Boston, you have no idea how classless NESN is ... Just like the Bruins, especially after Chara's hit on Max.

Not only will I have to go to work and hear it from people that barely now anything about the game, I have to endure crap from Redsox and Yankees fans all summer long.

Dear god it's going to be a horrible summer!

a) Sometimes the bad guys win

b) Suck it up and let's enjoy the future

c) Timmy is pure class, despite the fact that I hate the Bruins

and the Marty McSorley curse continues.

Since the Habs won the cup in '93, 5 Canadian teams have lost in the finals

Vancouver in 1994
Edmonton in 2004
Calgary in 2006
Ottawa in 2007
Vancouver in 2011

I guess we'll have to wait for the Leafs and Winnipeg to lose in the final before everything comes full circle and the Habs can win the cup again and break the curse!

Will you guys/girls get over it already!?!?! They won, let it go! The Canucks did not deserve to win it after that choke job.

I'm not young anymore,20, I want to see the habs win a cup before I go.

I hate to do it, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Thomas was solid for them this series. It hurts to say that much.

I hope our team can use this as motivation for next year.

Wait are you or are you not 20? And it hasn't even been an hour since they won... you expect people to "let it go"? Lol.

Yeah, maybe it's depth, maybe it's the system, maybe it's the goalie or maybe it's the goalie on the other side choking. I guess it's all of the above.

Another thing is that Ruins were lucky they didn't lose any D.

Yes, you guys/girls need to get over the Chara/Patches incident. It's in the past, time to move on. They won, I'm not happy about it but they won. The Canucks choked, they didn't deserve to win.

You're 20. If the Habs don't win a cup in the next 20 years, you get to ***** and moan. Stop acting like you're about to die because I know some Leafs fans that have been waiting 44 years now.

I (since I speak for myself and don't generalize a whole fanbase) congratulated the players for their win. But, my hatred for the logo is unequivocal. If I want to whine or make "sore loser" comments, I'll do it in the comfort and safety of the Habs board. Maybe you should move on and be all high and mighty somewhere else?

Right sentimenmt,but it's going to be a day or two to get over the B's and Chara,marchand et/al winning it. Then the reality of how far away we are of winning it.Bad management that can't or won't make big trades,won't get tougher,and are saddled with some cap killing contracts

I think I'll stay away from the main board for a while, please mods don't let Bruins come bragging in our own forums...
The Bruins win is well deservered. They got timely goals, good goaltending and played exceptionally well 5 on 5. I do not buy the luck argument because we won our Cup in 93 on the back of Roy and ten straight OT victories.

In this series, vancouver was very fortunate they got to a game 7 being outscored 23-8 in seven games. You cannot win if you cannot score.

There are some good individual stories on the Bruins (putting aside what I think of them as a team).

Thomas had a simply phenomenal performance, and deserves this Cup win as much as any individual player as in recent memory.

Recchi is an ageless wonder, and for a man his age to average a PPG in the Stanley Cup Finals is incredibly amazing too.

Ex-Hab Ryder is a clean player, and was a productive one for Boston all playoffs.

I was impressed with Bergeron's 2nd Intermission interview, and how he kept insisting that it's "Not good enough yet" even though his team was up 3-0 going into the 3rd. That's a dedicated winner's attitude, and I appreciate that.


From a Habs fan perspective, we can legitimately say that we gave the eventual Stanley Cup champions their toughest fight, as we were the only one to take them into OverTime of Game 7.


On the Vancouver side... I feel sorry for their fans, but that team has some mental toughness issues, I think.

You know what I'm itching for? I wanna make a "West > East" thread on the main boards.

Oh how witty I would be if it wasn't for my fear of infractions .
