[QUOTE]Thank, felixwas. If you go back and read some of my posts from games 5-6-7, you may recall that I was hoping that fans would follow the example of players, and congratulate the opposing team, regardless of the result, in the handshake lineup following the completion of gm 7. Many fans here have done so, you know who you are, and I appreciate the opportunity to partake in rational conversation about the sport that we all love so much. Other fans have shown significantly less maturity (sadly, they may not know who they are, self-awareness not being a typical trait), and to them, I paraphrase my posting on a different thread: The season is over. Your team won. Let the vitriol go. However, I do realize that this is "your" site for talking about the Bruins. So, if the more rational of you would prefer that I quit posting (I refuse to take advice from ranters), then I will leave; though I must say that I have enjoyed the respectful discussion from knowledgeable fans on this site.

You're more than welcome, just don't think that you're going to change anyone's mind on any player for another team. Argue, debate, and discuss hockey. You're just not going to convince posters here to take the high road and support Luongo, the Sedins, Lapierre, or Burrows. I find it funny how Rafi Torres, who most hate, wasn't even the villian in that series.
But don't just come on to defend Nucks because people don't want to hear it and you're not going to convince people to not trash Luongo and the twins. Come and discuss something other than Nucks trashing posts.
Great series, great run for the Nucks (tough one too). TT, Chara, Krejic, Bergeron and Marchand were just too much for the Nucks to handle.
