From Chicago, With Love

I'll start simple.  Congratulations, your team showed their teeth tonight, and played a hell of a game.

 

But more importantly, they closed out what may have been one of the greatest series ever played by two teams in the sport.  When people ask me why I love this game, I will point to this series.   Despite the outcome, these games defined what this sport is.  It's fast,  It's dynamic, it's brutal, and most of all,  unpredictable.  Thank you, because without you, our season would have been an exercise in frustration, punctuated by our inconsistency, and a shortage of optimism.

You brought out the best in us, something that we had waited an entire season to see (btw, thanks for hitting the Norris Switch on Duncs for us, lord knows we have been trying to find that all season as well).

Did you cast out demons tonight?  No.  Did you do something great for the franchise and the sport?   Yes.  Did you cement one of the greatest rivalries in hockey?  ABSOLUTELY.  The talent is there, the skills are abundant, and the confidence in both should have been secured tonight when that puck ended up behind my goaltender.  However, we will be back, singing Chelsea Dagger and finding new and clever ways to make Dave Bolland the most hated man in BC.

My only thought to you as you advance is the same that was offered to us when we were gifted the opportunity to play for a few more weeks by the Wild:  "earn this".

You may have won the President's Trophy, but you still are waiting patiently for a big Silver reward for the 40 years you have had to endure.  Earn it. 

You beat the defending champs

Earn it.

You are the best team in the NHL right now

Enjoy this win, but please,

Earn it, and collect what after this amazing series, should be yours.

Oh, and I still hate Luongo, Burrows, and that douchebag Bieksa like Lindsay Lohan hates rehab...

From Chicago, with (begrudging) love,

BCS
