The outcome of the cup finials is not a surprise to me since Chicago was the 2nd seeded team in the West while Philly was the 7th seed in the East. Also, on paper Chicago had a lot more talent but you can’t measure heart and that is why they play the games. But what surprises me the most is that just three years ago, the Blackhawks were in last place! So that give me hope that the Thrashers can be playing in the finials in a few years! Speaking of the Thrashers, former Thrasher Marian Hossa played in his third straight Stanley Cup Finials and has lost the previous two. I really wanted him to lose again so he could set a record, but that didn’t work out. Since I am not the type to hold a grudge, I am glad he finally got the hoist the cup. Even though he screwed the Thrashers and their fans, he is a good player and seems like a nice guy. So good for him!
