Bizarre, both teams had extreme hot streaks, over 100 pt seasons & both fell short of the Conference final w/ an OT loss. The Moose went up 2-0 and held that lead going into the 3rd but just couldn't put the game away (sound familiar?). It will be nice to have Schnieder between the pipes for a couple of years....sounds like Price was just too much for Manitoba's offence and won the series.
Here's a shot of Reid beating Price w/ a PP slapper from the point....
...could it be his last goal for the organization?
With young guns like Bourdon, Raymond & Grabner coming up next year there will be some decisions to be made as the Moose had alot of veteren experience this year w/ the likes of Goren, Flaherty, Moran, Tremblay & Keane on the team. Will Jaffray get that contract after all?
All in all it was a good season.....in fact it was a *great* season considering all the talk that Nonis' cupboard was bare. I think the team showed they have much more to offer than what was expected....but then again, so too did the parent club.
