so much for the stigma that you can't win with foreign players.
Also first time Cup winner with Euro captain.
Once again Don Cherry has made an utter fool of himself and I am not talking about his sartorial faux pas...... but arguing the league is allowing Sindy to be destroyed and calls not being made. this is simply myopic. Has anyone said anything about the mistreatment of Jagr? No! Boooh the posterboy of hockey is getting roughed up!
Teams' best players have to live with it. Jagr has for dozen of years. Cherry ought to know better.
The Pens' 1 1/2 minute 5-3 in first period was abominable! they cup was lost there and then.
Rather than opening up 2 free men by going lateral - malkin was trying to crowbar his way through 2 d'men straight onto Osgood.... from the Blue line. Gonchar was as the 5th player completely superfluous to the
proceedings. Bad call by the Pens coach
Wings played playoff hockey and never let the foot off the gas, they played their hearts out. So did Pittsburgh, they had a great run but they're still learning and the Cup is not too far away from them if they hold onto the key players. If i'm their GM I try to get Hossa signed and somehow get some experienced blueliners to mix in with the youthful forwards.
