Can someone PLEASE..PLEASE... tell me why when there are 28 players from CANADA and countless coaches and staff for both teams from CANADA that at the start of each and every game of this Stanley Cup Final 2010 not once was OH CANADA played in either arena...

I do HOPE that changes. DISGUSTING.

Signed,
DISGUSTED & FED UP in Oakville

Congrat's to the 'Hawks on their first cup in 49 years. Now that the Leafs have the longest streak without the cup in the NHL, all that's left for the double blue is to set a new all time record for not winning it all. (That's still 10 years away, but I'm confident that Toronto can do it, or rather not do it. {;-))

Terrific shots...(i'm envious--what cameras are these guys using?)..but the photographers captured plenty of drama...clear evidence of what a close game it was and the series, ultimately....aside from the 7-4 game, which wasn't the blow-out the score would suggest, every game was tough right to the end...credit to both teams....

The Philadelphia Flyers are true warriors!

Congratulations to the Hawks! Well done! ( I love looking at the background pictures of the winning goals and celebrations, the audience looks so sad and disapointed! You can see the occosianal person celebrating!)

Hey disgusted and fed up in Oakville,

If it was the other way around in a Canadian league do you think we would here the American National anthem? Just because the staff are from Canada doesn't require they play the Canadian National anthem. First of all they are employed by the American NHL and the games are being played in America. I'm not seeing the reason for your disgust. Don't get your panties all bunched up. It's not that big of a deal.

Enjoy the hair while you got it Kane - it doesn't look like its gonna last.

Way to go Blackhawks! It's been a long time coming. Great to see an Original Six win it. Chicago is a classy town. Now Torono's turn! Go Leafs.
