Of course it was worse, they were in cruise control at home forcing a game seven! Those losers choked so badly!

Bruins sure learned a thing (or rather two) from the Leafs. Why try winning for your own when you can giftwrap the victory for your opposition. Congratz to the Hawks. Another cup for captain Toews.

Seeing the Haws win their 2nd cup after their long drought just makes me feel sad/mad about the Leafs.

You could only use the "snake-bitten" excuse for so long.

For the Bruins fans who were polite enough after our loss, sorry guys.

For everyone else, Thank you God the Hawks won! It would have been insufferable to go out the way we did in Round 1 and watch the Bruins cruise to a Stanley Cup.

Now can put that ugly loss behind me and focus on the offseason.

that didn't stop Hughson and the CBC crew from using it literally the entire playoffs long....I'm sure they'll still be using it come next year.

i would have said y'all were nuts.
it would have been different if they were more respectful to the leafs...but while some fans were gracious, there were a bunch who have persistently made it seem like the only reason the leafs made it as far as they did was b/c the bruins played badly.

...and they did the same w/ the hawks...some of the fans on these boards made it seem like it was only because of mistakes by the bruins that the hawks had managed to take the lead in the series...even though the hawks were the best team in the NHL this year.

because i live in Toronto and the Hawks are my #1 team...I like to think they also won it for the Leafs

they've been living on borrowed time since shortly after game 7 in the 1st round.
