18 years since a Canadian team has won the Cup....do the Canucks break the streak this year?
Damn, damn, damn! It all comes to a screeching halt as of last night. Well, the boys put up a great fight, coming back to tie it from a 3 game deficit. It would have been a fairy tale comback if they would have won it. Congrats to the Sharks.
Vancouver never having won a Cup makes me want to root for them, I am just not a fan of those Sedin brothers.
I like Lecavalier too, since he is a Montreal boy, and of course, Martin St. Louis is an incredible player as well. They are both exciting to watch. I would love to see those two play for the Habs.
At the end of the day, now that both my teams are out, it's always nice to see an original 6 team win it, so Boston it is.
I think it is hilarious how I hear all the time that the cup needs to come back home to Canada and doesn't belong to an american city but, if Vancouver wins, it will be because an American is their best player almost every game.

Here's a question for you guys;
Obviously, the NHL started with the original 6 teams. Now, we have 30 teams. How do you think the level of talent of today's average player compares to the level of talent of the average player from the original 6 era?
I have my thoughts on this, but will wait to hear what you guys say........
Todays coaching, training, nutrition and desire to learn far surpasses that of the olden days.
Shit there are kids that play hockey with my son who is 12, and even younger, that can do things with the puck, professionals couldn't do 50 years ago.
