Yup. It helped immensely.

Anyway on to the next season. I have my tickets for the Winter Classic and although I love summer activities on the lake, October can't come soon enough. This team is headed in the right direction finally after years of floundering.

Moved on very quickly as life said, hello!

Honestly, it was very easy to get over. It was the first round. I would think most long term fans consider that a given since the black years in the 80's.

We are veteran members of the "wait until next year" brigade.

No, not really. It will haunt me for years unless the Leafs actually go on a deep run.

The Kerry Fraser game (and game 7 of that year) and Martin Gelinas are still remembered around the fan base. I happen to think that these awful memories for us will make the victory that much sweeter.

Regardless, I don't judge you for not caring about its "significance", so it really gets at me when people get on their high horse and chastise others for caring.
remembering and not being over it are two completely different things. I remember the non call, and many other Leafs moments from probably when you weren't even around. doesn't mean I still get upset or worry about them. it's sports, it's not life.

not on any horse. and never said you shouldn't care.

when you learn to understand what you read I think we'll get along better

I was okay with it midway through round 2 but then that game received official closure when the Bruins just got wrecked in the final two mins to lose the SCF

It seems the first real heartbreak hurts the most. Everything can be ranked accordingly, and with perspective.

Whether this comes off as elitist or not, this disaster wasn't very big if you've lived through many others.

Can you imagine how the Canuck fans feel, getting so close and now they may be getting further away than closer, while the Leafs should be getting closer.

Didn't watch much of the playoffs after the loss but watched Chicago's cup clinching game in its entirety

Over it now

I don't know how some people felt so spiteful towards the Bruins that watching them lose helped at all. That collapse is gonna haunt me until we go on a run, hopefully next year.

Haunting for me would have been watching a team we should have beat go on to win the Stanley Cup.

It's about perspective though. We saw our young and very inexperienced team choke away a game 7. Then we saw an experienced, championship calibre team that were champions a year removed choke away a 'do or die' game with the Stanley Cup on the line. If it can happen to them, why get hung up on it happening to a team that still has more growing and improving to do before they're a championship calibre team? Don't get me wrong, I'm sure some people hate the Bruins out of spite and felt vindicated for that reason alone, but I don't think that's how everyone looks at it.

Now I am but it sucked for the first few weeks and I didn't really watch any hockey until the finals after watching parts of every series in the first round

I got over it when the Hawks won and hockey was over with.

While the playoffs went on, it was still pretty fresh for me.

I keep telling myself that this loss will be crucial towards the Leafs winning the cup. We'll see..

The leafs have the most pathetic and legendary 3rd period collapse in all of NHL game 7 world history.... And some leaf fans are trying to equate that to the bruins not holding on to a ONE goal lead.

Like many here, I didn't watch any more hockey until late in the finals. That really really stung, (but not ass bad as 93 as aforementioned). That being said, I also agree that this happening could be the very thing that pushes this team over the hump to become real contenders. Cannot wait for this season to begin!!

Biggest playoff collapse I have ever seen.

Am I over it yet? Yes. Will I ever forget it? No.
