Glad to see Ovechkin finally get a cup and enjoyed seeing him celebrate. That was about the only thing that interested me about this series.

Really?   Cuz I donít think the NHL could have written a better story...    1st year franchise in Vegas gets to Cup...   Ovi finally has a chance to annihalate the ghost of not winning a Cup....   Washington makes it to final for 1st time.   

Lots of great narratives.   

What would appeal to you as a hockey fan?

A Canadian team in the final, and winning.

I'd like to see that too.  Barring that, though, I think Ovechkin and the Capitals facing the upstart franchise was probably one of the more interesting things that might have happened.   If the Capitals hadn't been in the final, I might not have watched as much of it as I did.

It just struck me that:

MLG has rebooted interest in BOTH their clubs with big signings/trades in the offseason.

...aaaaand....

The Leafs used to do this, and I thought they had eschewed this approach for the 'full rebuild' approach.  Dunno.

Adding Tavares to what they already have should make the Leafs a top tier team, I would think. It's hard to predict exactly how things will turn out, but on paper it sure looks good.

is Ron Hainsey still their best defenseman? That might be a problem.

Who are you to doubt Ron Hainsey?

That's hyperbole, obviously. But the critique of the Leafs for so long was that they didn't have any top-line centres. . . now they have two. And a great goalie to boot. You add Tavarez to a team that got 105 points last year, that only means they're better.

Perhaps a trade for a Defenceman is still in the works.

Oilers fire Chiarelli as GM.

The problem with the Oilers is that they have 2 failures in Lowe and MacTavish still running things behind the scenes.   What a dreadful organization.
