Well there were two other differences...one that Giguere won it on the losing team (after a mediocre finals), Toews got it on the winning team. Plus the neverending Disney/ABC/ESPN Giguere hype ticked us off the whole series regardless.

I don't know why people are so interested in sticking up for Philly fans anyway, because they happened to not be sub-human last night? Big deal, they had one of the best runs by a team ever, there was no way even they weren't going to be slightly magnanimous in the end.




JS Giguere was booed loudly at the old Byrne in 2003 during the Conn Symthe presentation. The boos only died down after the crowd began to chant "MARTY'S BETTER!" I remember that game like it was yesterday.

The fans booed because even though Giguere had an amazing run to get to the Finals, Marty had a Finals performance for the ages. 3 shutouts including a Game 7 blanking. There is nothing like a Game 7 and to have Marty shut Anaheim out to win the Dev's third Cup, truly remarkable. Brodeur also suffered as the Conn Symthe votes were split between several Devils including Stevens, Niedermayer, Friesen, etc.

Philly fans are the worst in sports. Always have been, always will be. Hence the term, Philthydelphia.
