We'll win the next 3 games. We are the team that deserves to be destroyed by the Kings in the Finals.

The Rangers have a thread on the main page discussing who should lift the cup first when they win it. Guess not only are we done but the western team is done too. Getting ahead of themselves a little I think (I think Kreider should lift it first. he did his best to get us out of the playoffs)

Being optimistic doesn't do **** when you're not the one playing. God damn, I wish people would sometimes understand a few things in life...

And *****ing and whining and bashing every player does what exactly? Except to depressing the hell out of everybody reading these boards...

At least being optimistic and having a positive demeanor breeds positivity around you.

I apologize for how tacky this sounds, but it is true.

Striking contrast between the comments made in the game 4 thread and the game 5 thread.

In game 4, guys are taking personal shots at the players and the team, while in the game 5 thread, the talk is about lundqvist being solved, and the how awesome the habs are.

The truth is that lundqvist is not solved, and he usually responds very well to a mediocre outing. The truth is that the habs are not gutless pukes, but a team that is trying hard to get the job done. The truth is that these two teams were very evenly matched going in, and the price injury gives the rangers the edge.

The polarizing talk from one day to the next around here can be nauseating.

If you want to be a troll suggest Doughty or Carter

Yeah I agree with this, but at same time these threads aren't cathering to the same posters.

After a loss, you see the pessimists, DD haters (the DD thread got popped back on top for some reason), the 'I told you so' crowd. After a win, the fanboys (myself included), the vindicative 'I told you so' but positive way crowd, and the bandwagonners mostly post and the haters stay quiet.

That said, no matter what happens I think that us, Habs fans, can be proud of what this team has accomplished. Not an easy task getting past the Bruins and competing hard without their no1 goalie.

But I still predict a summer full of DD bashing (moar size size size !!!11) and MB 2nd guessing. Nothing ever pleases all Habs fans. For myself, I've been a negative nancy for years now, since around 2000 when the team was just atrocious, but now I've changed my attitude toward this team and management. They brought hope back. Next few years this team will be improved big time, all the dead wood gone, all the young talent entering their prime.

The only cup they're going to lift is the one in their jockstraps and they'll find out it has more room than when they started the series with us.

We got this. (TM)
