Awesome series. The Hawks clearly deserved that trophy. Top-to-bottom, the best team in the NHL.

The BS calls throughout the entire series was pretty tough to stomach too. I'm not conspiracy theorist, but I seemed like a lot of the calls were intended to keep the series going. AND, the thing that bothered me the most was all the attention that was paid to the Flyers. The game 2 tribute to La Pierre, while it was still in Chicago, was total crap. I understand Eddie Olczyk and Jeremy Roenick trying to be impartial, but they, along with everyone else went a little overboard, heaping the praise onto the Flyers.

That said, please allow me a short rant. As much as I always try to be a good sport about comptition, and have always taught that to my kids and the teams that I have coached, I did NOT want to see the Flyers win the cup! I have rarely seen such B.S. dirty play, ESPECIALLY in a final series!!! The fact that Pronger was only in the box four times in the entire series, and two of them were last night, is a travesty! The only thing that I saw worse was the way the Flyers fans acted during the presentation of the both the Conn Smythe trophy and the cup. Booing both Toews and the Hawks was simply low-life, poor loser crap!
Members of my homebrew club were telling me at our meeting on Monday that they were at games three and four, in Philly, and wore Hawks jerseys to the games. They said that simply walking to their seats was dangerous, as they were spit on, and flipped off by an EIGHT YEAR OLD! (He's guessing the age obviously, however......)
Congrats To Kane and the Blackhawks! about Philly...what did you expect from "The Broad Street Bullies?"

I love watching Philly lose Almost as much as I love watching Boston Lose.

Don't judge us all by the shenanigans of those people. I am just simply a hockey fan, and have loved the Flyers since I was 10. Doesn't make me a bad person, though some might say I have poor taste.

As I said, they deserved to win. They simply out played the flyers. They played extremely fast, good and tight hockey in my opinion. Flyers were clearly out of their comfort zone.

I was definitely miffed they lost, but who isn't when their team looses. It was still a remarkable run for the flyers considering where they stood in the conference.

Love them. Hate them. There's really no in-between. At least not that I have seen.

Again, a well deserved cup win. Better them than Jersey.

All I remember is watching them win it on Wednesday, and then I came back to consciousness on Friday afternoon.

I take no responsibility for anything that occurred between those times! (Especially for the immaculate conception that was conceived by one of the llamas at the local ranch.)
