Thanks. This totally sums up my feelings. My friends keep offering me treats to help get me through, but this is even better.

It is a frustrating loss, I can honestly say I am drained emotionally and need a hockey break. I love them, but looking back on the playoffs, I think they had luck on their side a few times and it finally ran out. They need to do some serious work on their special teams, if these had been better, the out come may have been different. Does this involve some special coaches changes ? I don't know, but they aren't the team yet that they can be.
Great Stuff Bartl.
Frustrating for me was Q as Charlie Brown to Verbolzus' Lucy. Q just knew that this time they would not pull the ball off of the tee... if only
Your words are appreciated.
When Q spoke with press he talked about how proud he was of the guys...getting this close to trying for the cup, coming back from a 3-1 lag to a game 7 OT. I want to agree with him but mostly that makes it WORSE for me. At least currently. If we'd have lost game 6 in LA, of course I'd be upset but it wouldn't sting quite as much as a random bounce off Ledpipe in a game 7 OT for hell's sake :(
I just wish the goal could have been more worthy of the series. Even if LA still took it, at least make it on a great play or a crazy break away. Such is hockey though, I'm well aware.
I'm with you...it's going to take a while for the sting of that loss to recede. I'm glad we made it as far as we did but at the same time it makes it that much harder. We were SO close. We are such a powerful OT team.....the "what-if" reel will be playing in my head for quite some time.
@Stef The real galling part about it was that Carter was offside, and that went uncalled. Apparently, his goal was off a high stick, too. Kind of hard to take. But, these guys outlasted the President's trophy winner, as well as the two teams that finished ahead of them. So, they can hold their heads high.
