    The key for me is the realignment. Move to four seven team divisions, drop two teams. Detroit moves east, Winnipeg moves west, islanders contracted, and until lately I would have axed phoenix.

    I guess now I'd ditch a SE team and move columbus or Nashville to an east division.

    I am liking this game.

    Always blame Harry! It was not that long ago that I could any night I wanted and get cheap tix outside the Garden after dinner. Same for the C's. Big change...for the better. Hope I don't have to wait another 40 years.

    At this level such a fundamental mistake is unforgivable. Quick reminded me of Patrick Roy handling the puck. Good grief!

    Cap space makes baby jeebus cry.

    Avalanche!

    There's three reasons not to take stupid, dangerous, retaliatory penalties. :huh

    The boy I watched in his AHL days has done what the great one could not, bring the Lord's silver to LA.

    Well done young man. Nice effort by the King's, for an 8th seeded team.

    This one hurts. But at least we lost to a better team. The Kings just had all of the momentum in the series, and even got most of the bounces go their way. Also, I haven't seen a goalie dominate for the entire 4 series that a team played to get the cup. Stat I heard on the radio--Devils only scored 7 goals on Quick in the series, which is the least amount of goals ever scored on a goalie in a six game series in the cup finals.

    Yeah, Quick was very solid in the AHL for a short stay too. Over his stint here, I saw him have one bad game. The whole team stayed solid. It is a good year if the Habs don't win it. Or the Flyers.
