Re Gorges and Gionta: Here, here and well said HabBurl. I am amazed to have got this far down in the posts and not seen anyone else (so far, still going down the posts!) echo your feelings. They were great and truly appreciated Habs.

Two sports bug-bears this summer: 1) The thoroughly unsportsman-like ethos of FIFA players - high time these guys are fined or penalised in some way, even if it is after the match following video review, for their diving/faking etc. Talking of faking... 2) Is Scherbak 6' or 6'2"? Is Parenteau 5'11" or 6'? The list can go on and on... It seems we the fans and the NHL itself has adopted a phobia of anyone 5' something and if someone is 6', they must be jacked up as far away from any possible belief that they might actually be - uh-oh - 5'11" or a mere 6'. How many physical examinations do these guys have a year; and no-one really knows their true height? I imagine we are now fully immersed in this trend, but I for one find it tediously school-boy. Otherwise, having a great summer and wishing the same to all of you!

Like Scherbak, the right choice at that moment and feel he'll work out for us. However, fearless prediction, we would have like Brendan Lemieux on our team... Time will tell!

Call me old fashioned, but Don Cherry: "Manners are for Sissies".... Yeah, nice comment to the kids from the public face of Canada's national sport. On a positive note, that to me makes last night even more sweet - if that is at all possible!!!

Every year I believe, but I am so delighted to have overcome this year's Bruins. The way I see it, anything from here is a bonus, I'm still in 'one-game-at-a-time' mode, but couldn't be happier for the team right now. Re MT: I am impartial to all criticism, the result on the ice is what counts - 'nough said. I was impressed with every member of the team. Carey Price... Chapeau.
