Now that it's all over but the crying and Stanley Cup posing for random photos, here are the Top 10 Goals of the Year for the 2007-08 season, according to some dumb French-Canadians RDS.

While we here at Open Hockey blog agree with Rick Nash at #1 (as well as the other one he got in the top 4) and #2 by Toews, this list is really screwed up in that they include 2 goals at some positions. For instance, they show Andrei Kostitsyn scoring in two different games at #3, and the Ducks get two at #8, and for nice passing plays, not great goals. So this Top 10 has a total of 12 goals--you get 2 for free! Still, overall it's a good highlight reel. However, I would remove the Ducks' passing clinic and add this one.

Johnny Oduya goes end-to-end (9 Feb 2008 vs. CAR):

And yes, this is going to appear Devilcentric, but how about this knocked outta mid-air Gionta shorty (no pun intended, Bri)?

Brian Gionta (vs. PIT):

Honorable mention:
Zetterberg vs. COL, Game 5 on 1 May 2008
Andrei Kostitsyn vs. PHI, 17 Feb 2008
