I can relate to the way my dad took it.

Mostly hold it all in, randomly driving somewhere ;"FOR **** SAKES!"

"What's wrong? Oh never mind, I get it"

It hits ya sometimes. Something I hope we don't have to experience again.

Oi.


It seriously took me - a very long while to get over it, because I had had such faith that we would win it. and then we were winning it. and then... we lost. it was like the perfect storm of... pretty much being a leaf fan (regardless of what era you started)...

Now I can watch it, and see why things happened the way it did, and understand why Nonis made the moves he did, and I firmly believe that this loss will totally be the gas pedal for the Leafs next year. DGB said it best (I can't remember the names, but I can remember the instances).

It could be that fan who caught that ball in the stands in Chicago, and the Cubs haven't done anything since..

or

It could be that player who screwed up for the Red Sox but the Red Sox won the championship the next year (or something crazy like that).

(oir you know, the Bruins turn-around).

I'm not saying the Leafs could win the Cup next year (well a lie. I think we can win the cup every year ) but it wouldn't surprise me if they gritted out a huge "us against the world" vibe, and use it to make some major (Positive) noise.

That game was hands down the most amazingly awesome, brutally awful worst game ever

The Leafs will be playing Boston and other teams in their division either 4 or 5 times. They'll play teams in the Atlantic+ division 3 times and teams in the Western Conference 2 times.

i remember kadri feeding kessel and blowing in the zone, kadri also flew in 2 on 1, and kadri put his stick on the ice to give kessel and option to pass to, instead kessel put it right on the money, low on the ice of Rask's pad landing right on kadris stick for an easy goal.. up 4-1, screaming with all my friends in the bar... Yup.. how that changed in 12 minutes.

It was heartbreaking to watch a lead like that blown, truth is i gotta give it to the buds for pushing it to 7 and almost making it to the second round. If you look at how Boston destroyed Pitts you have to feel good about how we really pushed them to the brink.

All the additions we made in the offseason should make us a harder team to play against. I just hope we can sign the rest of the RFA's.

Not over it yet. After work generally I find a quiet place in my basement and yell. That's not even a joke. "How the **** did they lose?" is typically what I yell. Helps me get over it.

I couldn't watch hockey till near the end of Pittsburgh's beatdown on Ottawa.

The other day, two-month anniversary of the game, watched the highlights of every game over again.

Yelled at Grabovski for his stupid play that almost cost them game six, and his lazy play that lead to Boston's 2nd and 5th goals in game seven, realized he's gone, felt some happiness and hope for next year.

Not over it but feeling a lot better than I did that night. I was broken for weeks after they lost. I've had a longtime girlfriend cheat on me with two of my friends, and that game still made me feel more empty than her. That's how devastating a loss it was for me.

Sort of. I was really pissed after that, took all the leaf stuff off my walls, car, everything. But recently, I've put it all back. Yeah, it still sucks, but I'm excited for the new season to start and to (hopefully) build off of that so the teams better next year.

No. That Game 7 will always be in the back of my mind until we win one. Boston losing the Cup in a similar fashion makes it easier to digest but it's unforgettable.

I am sure the Bruins still remember the mighty collapse against Philly despite being in two Cup finals and winning one.

I believe this loss helps more than it hurts in the end. There was only player on our team that knew what it takes to win in the playoffs: JvR.

I hope the loss taught everyone on that team what it takes to win.

That game created a wound that I don't think will ever fully heal, but I said to some buddies on that night that even though this loss shattered our hearts, we fought so admirably and we have a lot to look forward to, even if it was hard to see at the time. We took the first step back towards respectability and now we can go into next season ready to take the next step.

I second this.

Lupuls quote summed it up best for me - winning a cup would probably alleviate that for me.

Just finished watching the ESPIE awards where a segment of Miracle Moments included Boston coming back in the late moments of Game 7 - I literally started swearing at the television.

Over the years, many NHL teams have come back from being down 3 or more goals in the third period. And while it hadn't been done in a game 7 before; that's about as relevant as saying it hadn't been done on a Thursday. And certainly, Boston's comeback was one of the possible outcomes that I considered when I was watching the game, so it was not unexpected.

Yes, I was disappointed, but I still thought that the Leafs' exit was better than being swept like Vancouver or losing their last game in the playoffs 5-0 (or was it 6-0) like Montreal. And as others have said, in the end, my life is no different because of the outcome of that game.
