This isn't sarcasm. I truly am a Penguins fan congratulating my hated rivals. The Flyers had a good season and they battled hard in the playoffs. They deserved far better than a first round playoff exit.

I hope Martin Biron stays in net next year, and that they can at least keep their blue line intact. Flyer fans may disagree with me, but I think that a little stability in net is going to go a long way to build this team into a cup championship. What does Philadelphia have to lose? It's only been 34 years since they won the cup! And only 12 since they last saw a cup final! Sorry to bring that up guys, but a little consistancy and stability will go a long way in this post-lockout league.
Overall this is one of the better playoff series I have been able to witness. It was intense from the opening faceoff, and it never let up. Both teams stepped up to the challenge, and both teams deserved to advance.
I look forward to next season and meeting the Flyers once again in the playoffs. It is sure to be a battle once again.
