even if the away team wins the cup, the home fans never leave until the cup is presented.  much like post-series handshakes and taking a puck to the face and not missing a shift, this is what makes hockey a unique sport.

uh, not always true, i've seen a few cup presentations where the fans were walking out... detroit @ washington being one of them, as kosmo pointed out.

seriously?  he's the first?  hard to believe... admittedly the population on the rock is small, but i would have thought that in 115 years at least one newfie had snuck on a winning team.  huh.  interesting.

yeah i bet there was a bit of a party in Newfoundland last night...  it was a fact that the announcers mentioned several times during the series, along with it being the first time a european born captain was to raise the cup

well, if you ever want a taste of whos NOT classy....just go to a DC sporting event.
 
 (and no, not all of you, but a good bit of them)
 
 its funny that they get no national recognition of being crappy fans like Boston, Philly and New York.  but perhaps thats cause they arent assholes, they just dont really care.

Yes - at times I thought it had become the Nothing But Cleary network    :D  
 
 Even in loss - I love the psychology of sports. This is a powerful photo:

damn i had to leave the bar that i was in to catch M83. Ok - Im not really complaining because M83 was one hell of a show and I even forgot there was playoff hockey going on. Ah well. From what I saw the wings were on their game last night. Interesting that even in a NY Irish pub most everyone was cheering for the wings. I thought for sure there might be Pens fans around, but found none.
 
 The female keyboardist had one hell of a voice. I only wish it was longer. I think the show was maybe just over an hour - but I could have listened to them playing for way longer than that.
 
 The Presets tonight. Should be another great show!

Lacking motivation to continue career, Hasek retires after 16 seasons
 not to diss one of the great goalies of our time, but i'd be unmotivated too if i had an ego as big as his and watched my team win the cup without me.
 
 and  wings dent the cup - nice work!  :p

Hasek cruised into the 4P's one night when I was working (the Czech embassy is right around the corner).  Super nice guy.  Refused to let me pick up his tab, and tipped me hansomely.

Hasek is one of the greatest goaltenders ever. Maybe top 3. And I'd say that had he never laced them up for the Wings.
 
 I'd take Hasek in his prime over Roy or Brodeur in theirs. I can't speak intelligently about Dryden, Tretiak, or Sawchuk, but of my era, he was freakishly good.
 
 Heck, at 43 he had a <2.1 gaa.

 Rocket Richard - Ovechkin
 Norris - Lidstrom
