    Well... hats off to the Red Wings. Great series.

    Congrats to Lidstrom. 1st European Born captain to hoist the cup. And he's a damn good one too!

    You could probably go down the whole roster and find something good to say about every one of those players. I don't mind "my team" losing quite so much when it's to such a good team. None of the thuggery you see from teams like Calgary who think if they can't beat you on the ice, they'll just beat you into the ice. The Wings just play damn good hockey.

    Enjoy it guys. I'm jealous! ;) Have a cold one... you can relax now - it's over! Congrats again.

    Great playoff games for both teams. The Pens should be proud of the job they did in a short amount of time during the season. The Wings were good all year from winning the Presidents Trophy to the Stanley Cup. Bring on the 08 -09 season :)

    Now you're just rubbing it in! :D :D

    Love to see Brad Stuart get his name on the cup, even if it has to be in red rather than in teal. He was a really good Shark!

    But... man, don't you guys hate that Babcock guy. I think you should run him out of town on the next train.... In fact... I think there's a train leaving shortly that heads towards San Jose. If you hurry, I bet you could get him on that train! ;)

    Damn... missed it by THAT much.

    Latest rumors around here are that Tortorella might be the next Sharks coach....

    Hey guys thanks for the great conversation on here.

    Now, what will we do now that hockey is over?

    Speculate about next season, of course!

    Does Chelios retire having won the cup? Or does not playing in the finals leave him with a bad taste that he has to get out of his mouth?

    Does Malkin stay with the Penguins? I've seen at least one national hockey guy say that the Pens can't afford Malkin. And named San Jose as a potential destination (I'm wouldn't complain!). Can't remember who said it, but it's been several weeks ago now. Frankly, I think he's full of crap - you can't let Malkin go after the season he had. He's my pick for MVP.

    Where does Hossa end up? Again, heard his name linked with San Jose. (Not sure where san Jose is coming up with all this money, of course. They have an "internal" cap which they're very close to. Just resigning Bryan Campbell is going to be hard money wise).

    What do the Wings do for goaltending next year? Do you hang your hat on Osgood once again. As good as he was, he's no spring chicken.

    Probably alot more to speculate on when it comes to the Sharks than there is about the Wings, but there are some questions there that'll be interesting to see how they play out.

    How long does Lidstrom want to play. He's 38 if I heard correctly on the radio broadcast tonight. He looks like he could play another 10 years, but what's his desire?

    Does Dallas Drake retire now that he won the cup?

    If I ever see Hudler on the street I am going to kick him in the nuts and then run away.

    Did you notice too that he was the reason for the Pens winning game five and the power play goal tonight?

    I did notice. Even Osgood mentioned something about smacking Hudler for creating the extra stress.:lol:

    But my gosh it feels good to have won another Cup. It goes a long way to heal the wounds of recent playoff disappointments.

    During the interviews after the game was over he said that he is coming back. But that may be the Cup talking.

    One funny comment came from Holmstrom. They asked what was wrong with him injury wise and he listed a few things, including a sports hernia. He looked at the reporter and said: "I'm too old, I don't need this sh!t." Live TV no time for a bleep. :lol: The reporter quickly changed the subject. :lol:

    Go Red Wings!!! :joy: :biggthump :goodjob:

    Congratulations to the Red Wings on winning the cup.

    It was a great season for the Penguins even though they came up short at the end.

    Malkin won't be going anywhere next year , he's still under contract. They can begin negotiating a new one this year though.

    Shows what I get for believing everything I read... ;)

    Malkin is there for another year.

    Free Agents for the Pens this year are Gary Roberts, Brooks Orpik, Marc-Andre Fleury, Georges Laraque, Marion Hossa, Ryan Malone, and Jarku Ruutu.

    Next year is Malkin and Staal.

    I've seen rumors that Roberts, Orpik, Laraque, Hossa are gone for sure. Malone and Ruutu are hard to keep because they have to pay Fleury this year, and Malkin and Staal next year.
