That closes the book on hockey for a couple weeks…


The Marian Hossa curse is over!

If it’s true that nice guys finish last, then it’s only fitting that Patrick Kane is a Stanley Cup champion. The pride of Buffalo scored the overtime winner tonight, handing Chicago a 4-3 win in Game 6 and its first Cup since 1961. Personally, I was busy getting caught up on Season 7 of Curb Your Enthusiasm and missed all the hoopla. Larry David trumps all sports in my book, especially this one.

Canadian Olympic gold medalist Jonathan Toews picked up the Conn Smythe for the Blackhawks, finishing with 29 points in 22 playoff games. Defensemen Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook join Toews as double champions in 2010, having also been members of the Canadian team that beat Kane and the States in the Olympic final.

Now, the long-awaited NHL off-season, which lasts about a week before training camp gets underway for next season, or so it seems that way…

    I found your entry interesting do I’ve added a Trackback to it on my weblog :)…

  3. It was such a weird goal to win it. But, at least they didn’t just go right into the ceremony and not bother to look at the replay like in Buffalo. They had the cup out, and were wanting to leave within seconds. THAT WAS A CRIME!!!!!!!
    Yup yup… the taxi mugger scored the game winning goal. I wonder who got the puck??? Did Pronger?? In game 5 in Chicago, watch the final seconds and see half the Hawks on the ice surround it, as if they were protecting it with their lives!!!
    Now, its the awards gala in Vegas!! The same place they hold the PORN awards. I hope they take down the decorations, and SANITIZE THE SEATS!!!!! I’m not anti-porn, I’m anti sleazing up of a (one time) reputable sport!!
    Does that make the importance, or relevance of the trophies diminish because they have it in Sin City?? The awards mean something, but to white-trash glamorize it this way is sad. Return it to some dignified place, and it doesn’t matter what side of the border.
    Then a hockey summit of ignorance, then the Leafs will be back to first place again….until the season begins. Then its “wait til next year”…in November!!!!!
