    Kane's Cup winning goal in OT was a thing of beauty.

    After looking at the replay, maybe the Philly goalie just blew it on Kane's shot.

    Ya think?  That was a HORRIBLE goal.  Nonetheless, congrats Chicago, great city, great hockey team.

    With the Hawks winiing tonight, ending a massive drought of almost 50 years, Detroit last winning in 2008, the Rangers taking the '94 Cup and Montreal last winning it all back in 1993, that leaves the Leafs in 1967 and our club's last championship being in '72. 

    My question is considering the current state of both teams, which one is closest to ending their Cup-less years first, the Bruins or Toronto?  Perhaps its an unfair question but 38 years is not that much better than not winning a championship in 43 seasons.

    Bruins are closer to winning the cup.....there is no argument for Toronto being closer.

    Goes to show you even a great team like Chicago can be pushed to 6 games. Great game, Great series but only one team gets to hoist the best trophy Lord Stanley's Cup. Congrats Chicago!

    PS. Jeremy Roenick shedding some tears and needing a hug from Milbury LoL!

    Hate to see the fair weather fans in Chicago celebrate. 3 years ago, place was 3/4 empty most games. They all wear Toews or Kane jerseys and want to fight you if you have on any other teams jersey. Scream like morons during the Anthem and yell shoot, shoot, shoot, every time a hawk touches the puck.
    I know...I live there. Anyway, always love to see the Flyers lose!!!

    You stole my thunder! 

    That is deff a concern. As Bob Mckenzie said early this year, the Black Hawks may be looking at a bridge year next season. Obviously, you have Toews, Kane and Hossa but questions at all other positions. Maybe they should hand Sharp over to the Bruins, for free?

    It was good to see the Blackhawks finally win the Cup again.  It was even better to see the Flyers lose it.  Can you imagine Flyers fans if they won the Cup?  Insufferable.

    Let's see; old scrooge team owner dies, and his team goes on to win the Stanley Cup less than two years later.  Hmmm...

    That was really something.  Kudos to Millbury for dropping the Mr. Machismo act and behaving like a human being for a few minutes.  It just goes to show how deeply winning or losing the cup impacts the players.  18 years after the fact, Roenick is still moved to tears when he thinks about losing the Cup in Chicago.  You could see how much he regretted not winning a Cup earlier in the broadcast, but seeing him break down like that really showed that it is something that never leaves a player.

    In Response to Re: Congrats Chicago : Torontos closer, The Hawks became a cup team after and only after  the departure of one of the worst owners in the NHL  DOLLAR BILL WIRTZ!  when Dollar Bill checked out that left J.J. has the undisputed king of Bad owners!  Toronto does not have  J.J. to help them lose, the Bruins still do and looks like they'll have him for the long haul!

    Toronto is not closer.. Chicago got there because they drafed smartly.. they had back to back 1/2 picks..Kane and Toews, nothing to do with ownership there, you hit a point where you have to rebuild and they did... thats what got them there, thats what got pit there as well, and thats always been detriors strength.. Toronto doesnt even have a pick in the first round in either of the next 2 seasons..

    My God.  Not even close.

    Burke is probably 1 year into a 3-4 year plan to fix a train wreck of a team.
    Leafs won't even make the playoffs next year. 

    Bruins way closer to a cup at this point.

    Yes, congrats to the Blackhawks for getting rid of 49 years of futility.  Glad to see Stan Bowman (Hawks GM) and his dad, Scotty, get one together.  Chicago was my preseason pick to win it all--the first one I've gotten right since the 2002 Red Wings.

    LRH - I'm with you.  Although he's steering the Leafs in the right direction, it will take a while for him to undo the mess he's inherited from the JFJ years.  Burke's certainly changed the "look" of the team in short order, trading the likes of Blake, Stajan, Toskala, Kubina,and one of my favorites, the feisty but smallish Ian White, just to name a few. 

    You must remember his words from earlier this season regarding his aim of trying to eliminate what he saw was a "state of entitlement" within the team. 

    There were frequent times this year, many of us felt that same malaise was on the Bruins, perhaps as a carry-over from last year's regular season gains.  A fat lot of good it did against Carolina.  Sure, injuries were a factor in the inconsistent play but some nights, the Bruins were just flat-out outworked by the opposition.
