As has been noted by every other hockey blog ever, it’s August and there’s pretty much nothing going on in the NHL. The free agency hoopla is over with and Stevie has for the time being retreated to the Degobah system, so yeah, it’s pretty dull around here.
Never the less, DTV has an obligation to its fans to keep them entertained, so I began to do some research. It turns out that our favorite years’ team had some pretty interesting times during their day with the Cup.
Dave Andreychuk, after painfully waiting 22 years to win the cup had derived a diabolical plan to destroy the Cup so that no other player would have to endure the suffering he went through. But, just like game 7, he got locked out of his own house and the plan fell through.
Coach John Tortorella sat the Cup at the very end of his sofa and spent all day yelling and cussing at it.
Nikolai Khabibulin just hung out all day using the Cup to take shots of Russian Vodka.
No word on what exactly Vinny Lecavalier did with the Cup on his day, but there are a lot of rumors that he let some players from Montreal and Toronto borrow it.
Brad Richards had a bit of bad luck during his time with the Cup, having scratched one side of the Cup’s upper rim. After spending half of the day getting the scratch buffed out, he then dropped it walking out of the repair shop, scratching most of the other side of the repaired rim.
Darryl Sydor sadly didn’t get to enjoy his day with the Cup, having to constantly answer the question “Your middle name is Marion???”
Another bummer, as Dan Boyle had to spend his day with the Cup in a local ER after the Cup slipped off the table it was resting on, hitting him in the head and giving him a concussion while he was tying his shoe.
Perhaps the most joyous day with the Cup was with Marty St. Louis, with Marty having used the Cup as a booster seat so that he finally didn’t have to sit at the children’s table at the annual family picnic.
