This is just amazing, the team work ethic has been phenomenal. The guys have played much better this series, less mistakes, more maturity and confidence against a good Predators team. A very resilient group, well led and coached. Wonderful
Nashville fan coming in peace. Congratulations on your series win, Phoenix. You out-Predatored us, your goalie showed up our goalie, your top two lines showed up our top two lines, you played better defensively than us. I feel a certain camaraderie with your team, with the whole small-market ownership issues and lack of star players. And I'm happy for Doan, who's stuck with this franchise when it totally sucked...now he's finally getting some payoff for his loyalty. That's a rare thing in pro sports these days, and it's something I doubt the Predators will be seeing with Suter.
Congrats guys. It hurts to be done, but I echo Trotz's post-game handshake words to Doan and to your team as a whole: "Go all the way, man".
Thanks, it's appreciated. We went into the series and I said as much as I'd hate to be done, I couldn't hate the Preds if they won. With Chicago, I would have hated to see them move on.
I do thing the teams and fanbases have so much in common, it's good to have a 'united front' against those who feel we don't deserve a team, or it doesn't belong in places where it doesn't snow every winter.
And I do love to see Doan rewarded - he's been the face of the Coyotes for so long with little to brag about, but this year the team has really done him proud.
