Let me keep this short and sweet:
1) Christobal Huet is not the answer for the Caps. He got pwned on that dribbler of a first Pflyers goal, and he got pwned on the series-winner in the exact same way that Cory Stillman pwned him in 2006.
2) I liked how Ovechkin and Kolzig stayed out to applaud the fans after the handshakes–I didn’t, however, like how the fans just kept their hands in their pockets. C’mon kids, your team went from dead last at Thanksgiving to the third seed in the East, they battled back from being down 3-1….and you can’t even give ‘em a little love?
3) Better luck next year. Except, of course, against the Hurricanes.
On to Round 2. Give ‘em Hell, Harry.
I watched bits and pieces of the Leafs-Sens game last night. At several points I had to check my TV to make sure that the colour was right, because I could have sworn that I was watching the 96-04 Whalercanes.
All I can say to you, Leafs fans is:
I told you so.
I cannot begin to tell you how many times I’ve been flamed senseless by Leafs fans for warning them about what to expect from Chairman Mo (and, for that matter, Jeff O’Neill). “I’m tellin’ ya,” I said, “all that stuff that you bitched about during the 2002 ECF? You’re going to see that again.”
But no, nobody listens to AQ.
Good luck, Leafs fans. Y’all look like you could really use it.
