After watching Ottawa's run to the Stanley Cup final do you think the Eastern Conference Champs need to make major changes?
What caused the Sens collapse in the Cup final? Was it coaching, goaltending, defence, or just bad luck?
Have your say in our forum.
Another idiotic comment is the CHOKE label. They got to the finals and were admittedly beaten by a better team. That isn't choking. As for that equally-asinine assertion that IF, somehow, they had met the Leafs in the playoffs they would have lost - well, IF your uncle had different equipment he'd be your flipping aunt.

I cant believe that John Ferguson gave Sundin a 2 year contract at $ 5.5 million a year. Is Fergie losing his mind ? Last summer he overpaid for Kubina with a $ 20 million 4 year deal. Leafs should have used the money they gave Sundin on some younger players with speed and talent and start rebuilding now not 2 or 3 years from now when Sundin finally retires. Now what has Fergie have left to sign any free agents a few million ? Its gonna be another long season in Toronto with no playoffs again next year!! Fergie give your head a shake, Sundin isnt a $ 5.5 million a year player nor was he ever. I guess we will see more Marlies playing at the ACC next year because the Leafs dont have the money to sign free agents.
Watching the Raptors may be a good substitute for the Leafs next year, at least they are exciting to watch and will be in the playoffs again!!!

All in all a great season with lots of promise for a return to the finals next year, thank got the owner is commited to winning and not just the bottom line.
It's great to know that we don't just dream about making it to the playoffs some day or back to the Cup finals some century, otherwise our fans would turn into childish lttle morons with nothing better to do than critisize the real NHL teams in our league.

Do the Sens need to make major changes, the answer is no. A couple/few changes i.e. Symth, Roberts would make great additions. Comrie, Corvo, Meszaros weren't too impressive.
While Alfresdsson did produce throughout the playoffs the 2 unsung players on the Sens throughout the playoffs were Fisher and Volchenkov with and honourable mention to the 4th line.
