Rewatching the Cup win highlights

Man, what an incredible moment. Maybe I've had too many drinks but I teared up hearing that clown Bettman say "Jonathan Toews, come hoist the Stanley Cup"

That team was truly incredible.

Watching those games and I see the way Keith was playing, he had 100% confidence in himself and more importantly, his teammates. I think that's the biggest difference, aside from talent on the current roster, between the Keith we saw that year and the Keith we've seen since.

He went from Norris Trophy Winner to Average Defensemen in one season. It's sad

Keith went from an elite Dman, to a good, sometimes very good Dman.

No "average" Dman could play the minutes Keith plays. For as much as he gets **** on, he still makes far more good plays than bad, despite being stretched pretty thin with all the minutes he plays.

Yeah, Keith is not "average". He may make more mistakes now but he still is really good. Top 15 NHL D Man and that's being conservative.

What the previous two posters said.

Keith is certainly still a great defenseman that any other team in the league would kill for.

I have said this many times before and I think it still rings true. As Keith goes, so do the Hawks. He was amazing in our Cup year and was my pick for the Conn Smyth ahead of Toews. He showed flashes of the same brilliance in the 2011 playoffs when Seabrook went down. Hopefully that fire will return to Keith’s game in this year’s edition. He didn'y look great on that Doan play in the 1st game but he hasn't been bad in the 2 games. It is Seabrook who is playing great hockey for the Hawks in the back end and if Keith steps up to play like he can, watch out.

I think Keith is fine and will be fine. He needs the fire back a bit more and some better players on the team that he trusts a bit more - like Hoss said. Leddy was at his best when he played with Keith, Olsen was at his best when he played with Keith. This alone shows me the worth of Keith

If you know how to use torrents, I have an invite to nhl torrent site where you can find almost all games, especially all playoff games.

I can see those games on NHL gamecenter, but it's just something different

Yeah, that is a classic. That was very well done.

"oh, it's a goal. Kane ripped it home....back then."

I like reading the old playoff threads, because they're all like 50 posts from the '08-'09 season

I still have Game 6 on the DVR and we watch it whenever the old man is in town. I get a lesson in 40+ year perspective every time because he still gets teared up when they bring the cup out.

And I'm still astonished by how much Kane's move to the net on the Cup winner resembles a basketball crossover. You rarely see something like that work in hockey. It was almost as if everyone froze up except 88.

You have GOT to love Seabrook beasting out there, though! He and Crawford have been our two best players so far in this round.
