    Happy for Ovie, Backstrom and Trotz. All super deserving champions and long time great players and coach.

    I remember last season howe much people talked about how the Caps should trade Ovechkin, their greatest player in franchise history and he'd never lead them to the promised land. Something to ponder as a Sens fan.

    I'm really disappointed with the trend of how the Conn Smyth is awarded these days though. The award is really losing its allure. It shouldn't be a lifetime achievement award.

    Congrats to both teams. I’m thankful Pittsburgh didn’t win another this year. Good for Washington for winning their first cup. Good on Vegas for having an incredible first year in the league.

    The Caps are a much better team then the Sens, they have finished top 10 in the league the last 4 seasons. so comparing the Caps to the Sens is like comparing a Ferrari to a Ford Pinto :) Even if we keep Karlsson we are missing to many pieces to really be in the same position as Washington. and we dont have an owner like the Caps who is willing to spend to the cap and bring a cup to Ottawa :(

    You have a point. Its akin to the trade Alfie cry from the early 2000s. If only he had a goalie like Holtby backing him up and a 1-2 punch of Kuznetsov and Backstrom.

    My point was you build around these guys though, not trade them.

    vs.

    “I’m not spending a lifetime of hard work on a hockey team” and “Maybe this team could look good somewhere else”.

    That was an exciting ass game, Caps were the better team and deservedly are the champions. Vegas was completely out of gas and it showed. Great Finals nonetheless.

    Ovechkin handing the Stanley Cup to Backstrom was such a great moment.
