    Hi Everyone. As a US Citizen in Upstate New York, I can only imagine how much of how depressed everyone in Montreal could be today. I feel for you all and other Habs fans throughout the World! Luckily, I do not have to deal with any Boston fans this morning. However, I do keep reading posts from fans who had their team on the plank after game 2 and Julien out of a job. I have bled Bleu Blanc and Rouge since 1974. My heart sank to the floor last night to see the Habs go down to the team I hate most in any sport. I said to my wife afterwards that the Canadiens winning the Stanley Cup is much more important than the Yankees winning the World Series to me. It is something beyond words. I lived and dreamed being Guy Lafleur as a kid, My Grandfather painted the Canadiens Logo up in the Hay Loft of his barn where we played floor hockey in the Summer when it was empty. My dreams only fell short of not having enough money to play organized hockey. I still have optimism that this team can reach the Holy Grail in the coming years with a few changes plus the up and coming stars. Rebuilding at this point would not work and set them back many years. The Habs are closer than most people think. They gave a valiant effort for having a semi depleted defense. 3 Overtime game losses were the only difference from the Habs moving on in this series. Boston fans cannot say their "Goons" outplayed Montreal in most any facet of the series and should be concerned about the next round. The Habs still do live up to the title of the book on my shelf called "Lions in Winter". No opposing fan can say today that they did not play their heart out during this series and gave us Canadiens fans hope for the future. Management please find a way to get rid of the few liabilities and bring in players to address the issues. A good transition defense and some power up front to play the net and boards. Take care everyone and enjoy the summer! Jim from NY
