If he wants a Cup, it won't be with the Habs. He'll have to lift his no trade clause to get another shot. Seattle may want their Fleury.

 

He played not bad tonight. But this Carey we got tonight didn't show up in games 1, 2, 3.

It was a 1-0  game... he played " not bad"? 

Oy vey!

He played well tonight. He made a great save, when the Habs were trailing by a goal.

 

In the most important games of his career, he gets destroyed twice in 3 straight losses, before losing the series 4-1. How could it not be disappointing?

 

He wasn't the goalie he was in rounds 1-3. It's true though, that he has a bad inconsistency issue. No lies detected.

Shirtless Kucherov just ranting in the postgame.  Party Kuch is the best.

 

Hopefully we're back to the regular division alignment because that Atlantic division just got more interesting.

Some real salty fans in Montreal & Vegas, but he didn't say anything wrong. Vas was a first-team all star & finished 7th in Hart voting. Fleury didn't get a single Hart vote. The only reason he didn't get the Vezina is because the GMs wanted to give Fleury his lifetime achievement award, and 3 of them left Vas off their ballot all together. I think Hellebucyk deserved it last season though.

 

As for the Montreal fans, I'm glad someone called out how obnoxious they can be. The Atlantic is going to be tough next year, so I'd love to see them fall on their faces & miss the playoffs.

I completely agree with you there.  Helleybuck was worthy but this year was definitely a career achievement award for Fleury.  But whatever, not that big of a deal.  I like Fleury and Vasi likely won't need this Vezina for the HOF.

I don't have a problem with Montreal fans although there were a lot that were delusional and insisted the teams had played evenly through the first three or four games, which was kind of weird.  They seem to have taken the series pretty well, unlike Islanders fans who are still salty their feisty team of goons couldn't clutch and grab and crosscheck their way into the SCF. 

 

Speaking of.  From the cheap shot in Game 6 against NYI, per Joe Smith of The Athletic:

 

Nikita Kucherov led #NHL with 32 playoff points. He also played #SCF with a fractured rib from this cross check against Isles. Had to have multiple injections, including flying back to Tampa between Games 3 + 4. “That’s all heart,” Blake Coleman said
