No goats here, if you told me we'd have been playing for the cup at the beginning of the year I wouldn't have believed you. Even if some didn't do what we hoped in the finals they were all critical in us getting here.
We shouldn't be paying close to $8 million dollars to a player who is going to be a non-factor when it comes to offense. And I personally have had it with Girardi. This isn't the first season where he looked lost.
We unquestionably overachieved. Our progression, nay, evolution was tremendous. We'll sort out a few roster/cap issues this summer -- maybe make a few interesting trades. But, tonight, the better team won the Cup. Well-deserved.
Overachieved? GTFO of here with that.

I felt like it was closer than 4-1 is going to look in the history books. A few luckier bounces/better job finishing/less blown calls by the refs and this could have been a series with the Rangers up 3-1 or 3-2 with a chance to finish things. It was close, but the Kings dominated third periods and ultimately won the coin tosses that these games came down to.
