Ducks Win - Let the Off Season Begin

First off, let me say my congratulations to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks and their fans. They had an amazing season and definitely deserved to win it all.

Some thoughts I had while the Ducks were lifting the Cup:

-"Man, this should be the Avs."

-It's amazing how the Ducks were mocked and critisized for their new jerseys in the beginning of the year, but not one word has been mentioned since. Interesting...

And in other news, the Sabres, the other team to make a drastic change, got pretty far as well.

-Why would Scott Niedemayer not shave his beard? I understand the good luck/bad luck and the tradition of the playoff beard, but come on, you're the captain. He now has to live with that awful looking beard in every picture of him hoisting the Cup as a Duck.

-Teemu Selanne lifting it was my favorite by far. Jumping up on his skates as he FINALLY gets to drink from the best mug in the history of the world. A very touching moment with his wife, and if this is his last game in the NHL, it's been a great career and the Hall of Fame is his next stop.

-The call at the end was terrible. A monotone "and the Ducks win the Stanley Cup." Lacked the excitement. Maybe he had too much time to think about it.

-Conn Smythe should have gone to JS Gigure. Stole games for the Ducks all the way through and outdueled Hasek.

-NBC didn't cut the Cup off for a horse racing update or the local news! Woo Hoo!

-Gary Bettman is so full of crap. That smug little smile. ....

-"Man, this should have been the Avs."

It's been a great season, and I'll be back in a few days with some Avalanche free agent rumors and some draft info.
