Finito

There you have it. One last shot of Don Cherry wearing your favorite upholstery/curtain fabric. If she were alive (and also not a fictional character), Scarlett O'Hara would be proud of Mr. Cherry's fabric utilization skills. As far as the Red Wings are concerned, fabric utilization wise, they've sewn up another Cup, #4 in the last 11 years, playing a style so reminiscent, IMHO, of the CCCP teams of the 1970's and early 1980's that I rubbed my eyes to make sure I was looking at Babcock and not Tikhonov behind the bench.
As Whisky Prajer noted, the Red Wings did deserve to win. They were a class above every other team and, on most nights, played that way through the Stanley Cup playoffs and the finals. Somehow it always seemed that, though limited to 6 players on the ice at any given moment, they skated so intelligently and swiftly that I'd swear they had 8-10 men on the ice. The waves of attacks never subsided, wearing down all opponents who skated backwards to their defensive positions, thinking they could stop the onslaught.

I'm getting tired of this guy ragging on the European hockey players... and I'm Canadian (albeit sympathetic to my European heritage...)
 
Another "finito": the CBC announces it's finished with the age-old "Hockey Night In Canada" theme song. Idiots.
