  1. Bettman finally congratulated us on reaching the final. Didn't do it during the Stanley Cup presentation like he usually does for the runner up. Seemed like this was something he was told to do since I'm sure there were some complaints. 

  2. Activity starting to pick up in the NHL:

     

    1. Shayne Gostisbehere to Arizona as a salary dump

    2. Alex Nedeljkovic to Detroit for a third and Jonathan Bernier's rights

    3. Mike Smith 2 year deal with the Oilers

     

    Number two makes no sense to me. I understand the cap implications and arbitration for the Canes but he signed for 2 years at 3 million per year with the Wings. That is a pretty cheap contract for a young goalie who was third in Calder voting last year. Carolina finally found themselves a goalie and weren't willing to pay him. In my opinion you find a way to fit him into your cap situation especially seeing how much he signed for. Great trade for Yzerman and the Wings though. 

  3.  

    Bergevin announced during his presser that Drouin is expected back next season. That is great news that he has dealt with whatever was keeping him out. Maybe some might not like it from a hockey perspective but from a well-being point of view you have to feel good for him. Myself personally I'm excited to have him back and can see him having a great season next year. Maybe 55-65 points. He showed pretty good chemistry with Suzuki last year. 

  4. I think it was always between him or Kulak from Seattle's standpoint. Based on their selections they are planning on going for cheap contracts unless it's the guy they really want. It really is unfortunate that all these leaks are happening. Kind of adds no excitement for the reveal at 8pm. Same thing happened with Vegas though. You knew the team ahead of it.

  5. Tampa Bay deserved it. They really are a great team with next to no weaknesses. I really like John Cooper as a coach. Such a well spoken individual who seemed like a genuinely nice guy. 

     

    A hell of a run by the Habs that I'll always remember!  Loved being the underdog and surprising all these teams. Price was amazing and showed that he is still a top goalie in this league.

  6. The Lightning are really dominating the Islanders in Game 7 based on play. Still leading with 11 minutes to go but Islanders are lucky to only be down by 1. Anything can still happen but Tampa will be a really tough opponent. So deep with high end skill.

     

    Edit: Tampa Bay it is. They hold on

    I rarely post anymore and was saving post number 1000 for something special like a Cup win one more time before I leave this world. I've been a lifelong fan of the Canadiens going back to the original dynasty, and my dad was alive for every single Stanley Cup victory the Habs had. But I feel it's important to thank my mother right now. She passed away in her late 90's earlier today. She was a long time Detroit Red Wings fan from the earliest days, which always made for some heated Saturday nights way back when, but I think she talked to those stubborn Forum ghosts today - she knew how much I loved my Canadiens. So I will give thanks for this as it brings a bit of joy to a rather sad day for our family.

     

    Les Canadiens Sont La

     

    Very sorry to hear about your loss. Glad they were able to give you a little bit of light on a day like today. It's great that you looking at it in this way.

    Son of a, that sucked.  This is the 1st time in these playoffs that Price has let in 2 weak goals in the same game.  Hopefully, Price is pissed at himself and will rebound next game and get a shutout.  

     

    Disagree that they were weak goals. Maybe you could make an argument for the first (though it was a perfect spot) he had no chance on the second.
