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?
are you just going to post that over and over again?
People will eventually get over it but it sure stings tonight.
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
Well when all is said and done, grats to the Bruins. Hate a whole lot of them, but I'm at least happy for Thomas and Bergeron (and some others...).
Honestly, Vancouver just didn't deserve it the way they handled the SCF. The way they played in Boston was so sad.
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.
