Was at the Imagine Dragons concert at Budweiser Stage and caught the tail end of the celebration.  Couldn't keep my eyes off the score.

Whatever it takes!

Can't wait to see his Stanley Cup celebration. Of course it'll be on video since I'll be a blubbering crying mess when it happens in real time.

Pretty amazing season and how can you not love the emotion from Dubas raising that cup ? How thrilling would it be to see him raising the Stanley Cup ???!!!!!

I think any questions of whether or not he’s capable of putting together a championship winning team have been erased. There’s really only one question that remains. Can he do it with the big club  and bring home Lord Stanley?

Would have really stung if the team couldn't finish off this incredible season with a championship. Sure sounds like it was a pretty dominant game 7 effort.

We hear a lot about how tough hockey players are for playing through injuries, but honestly making this call to not play through an injury at this point in time because you know it's the best thing for the team says a lot about Dermott.

Marlies were fairly dominant for long stretches but they also had some serious puck luck in the 2nd period.  Texas had a bunch of chances when it was 2-0 that could have easily changed the game.  One guy missed an entire open net, another puck just trickled to the post and almost went in.  If Texas scored in the 2nd to make it 2-1 it could have been an entirely different outcome.

I'm very pleased he put the team ahead of his pride. It was a shoulder injury that affected his strength and therefore capability. The Marlies played for everyone in the room and in the stands and everyone who came close before but couldn't take it across the line.

From Wheeler's profile on Sparks, it's pretty clear what a great environment Dubas, Keefe, and the Marlies built. Everyone should have a friend like Calvin Pickard and be a friend like Calvin Pickard.

One thing that sorta stood out to be in what I watched and what I read is that while Liljegren had a good playoffs, he wasn't really leaned on at all. That's somewhat because of the two righties ahead of him (Holl and LoVerde), but I'd like to see him try and take the next step and become a go-to guy with the Marlies before graduating on to the Leafs. There's no need to rush him next season.

I guess Shanahan and Babcock were there, but they stayed in the background to let the team celebrate.

Love it, hard not to feel a few "warm and fuzzies" about this organization going forward.
