So, for the first time ever the two teams that met in the SC finals failed to make the playoffs the following year.
Quite the downer for both teams.
I'm very proud of my Florida boys.
They lost Bertuzzi after seven games, Niewy retired after 15 and had their usual horrendous November, but they were still in the hunt with an outside chance right up until last week.
Hopefully they can scoop up a decent goalie in the off season.
I've heard of a few players that have been selected for the Canadian squad for the World Championships.
Off the top of my head I know Doan, Cammaleiri (sp) and Nash (who I doubt will go because he never seems to) have been selected so far.
I'll try to find a link because I know a few have been selected for the US squad too.
ETA Roloson, Jackman and Murphy (who is 29 and has played in Eurpoe for his whole career but has just been signed to a two year deal by Florida Panthers) have also been selected for Canada.
