Itís heartbreaking that the Oilers lost. Kudos to them for an exciting effort where a cup win wouldíve been incredible on a number of levels.

Congrats to the Panthers though. They managed to get back to their system that shutdown Edmonton in the first three games. Iím happy for Paul Maurice as Iíve always liked him as a coach. Iím a Sens fan, so Iím also happy for Bradyís brother Matthew to have won the cup. I hope Brady draws inspiration to take his game to another level to help the Sens get back to the dance.

I find it disappointing that McDavid snubbed public acceptance of the Conn Smythe trophy. He shouldíve returned to the ice to receive such an honour. Despite his brilliant play, I actually thought that Florida goaltender Bobrovsky deserved it more.

You know, I watched a lot of the playoffs, but I'm really not that big a fan of playoff hockey! There is rarely any open space for anyone to do anything. The games are almost all defense and very little offense. It's not that exciting to see them in a scrum for the puck along the side boards.

On a side note, the video coverage of last night's game was pretty bad. I know they had more, but it seemed like they had one camera way up in the stands....

One of the pre-game bits was about the Stanley Cup and how nobody could even touch the Cup unless they'd won it. This surprised me because I TOUCHED THE STANLEY CUP!

Back several years, my wife and I were vacationing and spent a night or two in Portland. We stayed at the Heathman Hotel. We went down for breakfast at the hotel's restaurant, and there was the Stanley Cup! They were showing it off for some reason or another, there was hardly anyone there, I went up and got a photo of me standing by the Cup with my arm around it. I do feel pretty lucky about that. I doubt I can find that photo in the thousands of photos on my hard drive. I should try to find it!

IIRC if you're a player and touch it without having won it, you'll never win it. Simple folk like you and I touch it all the time. Just don't lift it over your head.
