A Stanley Cup Title 20 years in the making since the last time Stanley visited/eluded DC in 1998, very happy for hockey fans and Caps fans alike as this years Final was different, special, and well worth watching.
Ovechkin, Backstrom, Oshie, and company have earned this Title the hard way ; as well owner Leonsis is a class owner well deserving of it.
Look for a few years of Vegas to be contenders before the true expansion team label actually hits the franchise and the work has to begin . NHL did ok with 'all-star team type draft' for the expansion team , but it will catch up to them.
As good as Marc Andre Fleury was this year with his fountain of youth performance , i do believe the one underlying factor in the Finals was that the Capitals were one of the few teams with intimate experience playing against him in playoff series over the last 10 years. Great season by both teams and fantastic hockey played to finish the season.
