Agreed, think we all have our closure, just shows how passionate people were about this team winning and how there was no excuse not for it to happen because they were so good. They did it. Time for us all to start acting like dynasty fans, best team in the NHL, see no reason why they can't go back to back, maybe even a three peat, scratch that, I'm thinking a minimum eight peat.
Credit to Bowman for the cheap Handzus pick up. Handzus with a broken wrist and torn MCL was a difference maker. Imagine what a healthy Zus could have done?
I did not think much of this pickup. Thought he was a poor fit for their style of play and would probably be forced to the wing where he would play an ineffective 8-9 minutes per night. I was wrong - he seemed to be able to thrive as the 2nd line center - a role he has never really held, or if he did, succeeded at elsewhere.
He was not top notch every game but he always seemed to do something, agitating, throwing a hit or scoring a shorty.
Kudos to Bowman and to Q for making it work.
There is one particular poster I have not seen much of here as he will be no doubt be disgusted this team won with this coaching staff......and Seabrook..........and Crawford.......and Bolland....and......
