    Say it every year, one of the great traditions in all of sports is about to happen, nothing like it. Steven Stamkos come and get the trophy.

    Lord Stanley is back in the Sunshine State!

    This does not suck.
    There is an expansion draft so they will lose some guys, but still should be awfully good again.

    Congratulations to the Bolts, they were clearly the better team, so many top notch players assembled here and they are hard to stop! My Habs had a great play off run and because it was so unexpected it was lots of fun, beating the Leafs after being 3-1 down was almost as good as a Cup win around here!

    Actually it really shouldn't be hard to think it. Best organization in hockey. 2 years ago won 62 games... And got swept. 3 years ago lost conference finals. 2015 lost in the the SCF.

    This had been a good team for years now. That blues sweep woke a demon.

    The Habs played a great series despite the final scores. Each game could have gone either way.

    Congrats to the Bolts! They are a phenomenal team. Deserve to be Stanley Cup Champions for sure! :star::star::star::star::star:
    The expansion draft and salary cap may chip away at their excellence a bit, but the same will happen to a lot of teams, so this run may well continue and become a dynasty like the Islanders and Oilers of the 80's.

    Check out Pat Maroon's podium interview. He dropped the F bomb twice live on camera!

    All of the people who live where it snows are quickly becoming jealous of southern hockey.

    I just saw that interview, either he is drunk or classless or a bit of both, Tampa was the better team but to think that Montreal were not disadvantaged by playing in front of 3500 instead of 21000 is naive or stupid!
