    I say this with utmost confidence.... No team will ever celebrate winning a Cup like Ovi and the Caps. No one, ever. From the countdown, to the mob on the ice, GB handing Ovi the cup and that gut roar, Ovi and Backie sharing a hoist, the victory lap complete with bewbs flashing, the all nighter in Vegas, the all week in DC, the fountains of Georgetown, Oshie drinking through his shirt, We Are The Champions being sung many places including a Nats game, Ovi reminding the parade goers that "we're not gonna be f***ing suck this year", all the way to the banner raising. Nothing will ever top all that.

    That said, congrats Blues and your fans. Enjoy it. I know we did!

    Oh man, yes! That little girl has a disease so rare, only 15 other people are diagnosed with it. The Blues adopted her, and what a gift they gave her. And she, them.

    No one (ever) will celebrate like the Caps did. But the Blues celebrated it like it was their 3rd cup in a row.

    Agreed... one would think 50 years meant something more, but most of those players are younger.

    Well, I look at it this way:

    Blues fans were at the bottom of the barrel in January so making the playoffs was a win in itself. Low expectations/low pressure to win. I talked to my Blues buddy after they were up 3-0 in the 3rd. 'There's still a chance for us to blow it'. Plus winning in Beantown with not a lot of Blues fans in attendance.

    Caps: Stacked team that kept of choking/under-performing for 10+ years in a row. High expectations/pressure to win. Won in Vegas with a sea of red in attendance.

    Also, those russian & euro ravers really know how to party. haha

    What? No way. Who the heck knows what the two picks end up being, and if O'Reilly ever does anything again in his career. He was pretty bad in these playoffs up until the Final if we are being honest.

    I'd like also say thank you to STL for another reason. They stop Couture at 14 goals in this playoffs.
    The last 3 players to score at least 15 goals in one playoff

    In regards to the Forsberg trade--I don't think we win a Cup without it. It basically caused GMGM to get fired, we hire GMBM, trade for Oshie, sigh Niskanen and Brooks, fire Oates, hire Trotz...

    I don't know if any of that stuff happens if we don't trade Forsberg.

    I think GMGM and Oates get fired when the team misses the playoffs, regardless of what happens with the Forsberg/Erat trade. The big difference would be them likely not trading for Oshie because they have Forsberg in house, and then possibly not signing Justin Williams because they would still have Brouwer. Maybe some alternate events happen instead (ripple effects).

    The real reason they traded Zach Sanford.
