So, Tampa's cup comes 12 years after tanking for Stamkos.

The year after the Blues win 13 years after getting 1st OA.

Does this mean Benning will be a genius if he gets us to the promised land within a decade?

Congratulations to Tampa. I wanted them to win. And congratulations to the NHL for putting on an amazing tournament. Well done. And let none say this is a tainted Cup win!

I wasn't sure the NHL was going to pull this off, but kudos to the league for making it happen. Congrats to Tampa Bay - no asterisk to their Cup (unlike Reef's pool win ;) ).

It was a hell of a playoffs considering everything that went on. Kudos to the NHL for a top notch performance. I’m often critical of some of the leagues antics but they nailed the tournament.

Congratulations to Tampa - what a great team.

Bettman and the NHL should take a bow. I LOL at the anger a lot of folks have towards the guy. He’s a darn good commissioner at the end of the day... but yeah if you don’t like rodent looking smarmy fucks I can see why he’d be on your shit list.

Remember I was trying to get Maroon for the Canucks 3rd line, and everyone here was like: "he's too slow" "he sucks"...now he's a back to back champion. :mrgreen:

Tampa making it ok to let your older vet expensive goalie go in favour of the hot shot young tender.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

No anger. Just noticeably absent during the presentation.

I was actually shocked at how well-spoken he was when not being booed or punked by Ron McLean!

Zero positive tests! Thats a testament to how seriously everyone took the bubble, unlike in the USA. Kudos to Edmonton and Toronto too. Canada looks pretty good right now.
