Seriously best of luck to you guys in the future, I really hope you proved everyone wrong not to underestimate you guys ever again. Good luck to you guys next year and many future years to come and hopefully you will hoist the the cup soon. Fantastic series and you had me nearly jumping off my roof half of the time.
Me too! Nobody expected us to do anything this year, aside from picking top three, and we pretty much told the whole world, F#%@ YOU! No reason for any of us to be down tonight. Yeah, we lost, but we also won. Hockey is once again relevant in South Florida, and this is only the beginning. To make such a push in year two of Tallon's plan says a lot about what he wants to do with this team, and we should all be excited about the future.
I was very upset by Kulikov's play throughout the whole series. He is much better defensively that he showed, and he created A LOT of scoring chances for the Devils. I really hope he learns a lot from the mistakes he made in the playoffs, and can improve come next season.
Congratulations to the Devils for winning the series. They were the last man standing in a seven round bout that featured two evenly matched teams. I wish the good luck the rest of the way.
First time venturing to these parts of the forum, I come in peace. Absolutely amazing series guys, have nothing but respect for your team. This series definately surpassed everyones expectations, most underrated first round series for sure, it was so intense from the drop of the puck in game 1.
take a deep breath. think about the fact we're watching playoff hockey at the end of april and talking about the panthers and .... it's all ok. i give props to tallon. i'm not happy with dineen - i don't think this team played with enough structure, enough consistency and enough heart... consistently. the 3rd period and OTs were exciting but the playoffs in general showed that we aren't close to where we need to be. i expect dineen to figure out what he doing wrong and right the ship but i worry that we are saddled with some flawed hockey players. no coaching can overcome flawed players that aren't willing to change.
