I estimated 500 fans, in the rain, at about 4:30. The team bus pulled into the gated portion of the lane in between the Rock and Parking Deck, and the players got out. You could see many of them were happy to see us there. They headed straight into the deck for their cars, so the crowd moved to the exit lane for the deck. Players slowly drove through the crowd, some handshakes, some autographs. I tried to be loud, but felt kind of emotional.

Then, when I got back to the car, I decided to call XM's NHL Home Ice show, "The Powerplay," and I shared my experience with Scott Laughlin and Phil Esposito.

So they flew in, took a bus to the arena, saw the fans, and drove away?

Had a blast waiting in the rain with you guys. As the cars pulled out one by one, many of them rolled down their windows and high fived the fans. I was the kid on the other side of the fence in the garage and climbed on the fence to get a good view.

Chants of 'come back zach' as he pulled away. He seemed awestruck and very happy. Marty was the most appreciative, waving towards the fans and thanking us. Deboer looked in awe as well.

Here is a picture I found, forget where to be honest

Pretty much. Some of the players waved to the fans, gave high-fives and signed a few autographs, but that was all. I thought it was a really nice way to close the book on what had been an amazing season.

Pete Deboer stopped and was very cordial as usual, Zach Parise(with Andy Greene as passenger) stopped and signed, Hedberg was great too(he had Josefson and Tedenby in the car with him), Zubrus was high-fiving fans as he went by...as was Eric Boulton. Tallinder waved as he rolled by but didn't put down his window. Not sure about the rest but the only two that I saw roll by without even really acknowledging the fans were Ponikarovsky and Adam Oates. Didn't see Clarkson or Kovalchuk at all...curious if anyone else did

Oates already had his gps set for the addresses of the refs from last night. That was one mad dude.

McMullen82's answer is essentially what mine would have been. Zach was particularly nice, signing a bunch of autographs, and he seemed genuinely happy that everyone was there. Marty seemed really appreciative of everyone; he had a pretty big smile on his face and waved to everybody. The ovation for Bernier when he got off the bus was pretty cool. I thought it showed how close the fans felt to the team, how we were all thankful for what he'd done this season and weren't preoccupied with one questionable penalty. Zubie's car was stopped for a while where I was standing and it looked like he couldn't stop himself from laughing. As someone else asked, I didn't see Kovy nor Clarkson either, despite the posted picture of Kovy getting off the bus. Overall, I thought it was a great way to thank the team for what had been a great season.

Thanks to all that could go for helping welcome this team home & letting Parise know how much he is appreciated by the fans !

More pics would be welcome, regardless of quality !

Bernier deserved the applause, not to be treated like the goat. The ref screwed him and all of us over with that call.

It was certainly a boarding ! The only question is a minor of 2 or 4, or Major...
Personally I think it was more than a 2. But I agree it should not have been a major.
So to me, he double-minor or major didn't make that much of a difference.

Is there such thing as a double minor for injuring a player in boarding. I thought it was either 2 or 5 and misconduct.

Actually it does. They would've scored 2, knocking out both minor penalties. You can score as much as you want on a major.
