Let's savor the moment

A lot of things went Chicago's way this season.

In the offseason, Kane made headlines, but wound up not being charged with rape.

The team acquired a good offensive player in Panarin, not drafted, and who accepted a contract with bonus incentives that allowed Chicago to stay under the cap.

They sheltered Hossa in long term injury status, gained cap relief, then brought him out, healthy and rested, for the playoffs.

At the trade deadline, Chicago was able to add three players to their lineup, including the very good Andrew Ladd. All the Blues could do was watch and shake their heads.

Chicago entered the playoffs with a team of veteran playoff performers. The Blues, however, entered the playoffs with three rookies in the lineup.

Then in the second game of the series, the Blues appeared to be in the driver's seat only to be victimize by two hugely controversial calls that gave the victory to Chicago.


So lets savor the series win. Great job by the Blues, including players, the GM and the coaches.

Still hate how Hitch handled this series but the Blues gutted it out. Props to the guys on the ice. Not really anyone else IMO.
