20th Stanley Cup Anniversary Season Plans (1992-93 to 2012-13)
 
This season will mark the 20th anniversary of our last Stanley Cup.('92-93 to '12-13)


What do you think or what do you expect the organization should do to commemorate? (vote)

Should they do:
  • Nothing. Focus on this season and keep the expectation levels high and ignore this anniversary and regard it as a failure since this team never has been 20 years without a championship.
  • Organize a spring parade down st.catherines street next spring with all the 1993 staff and players?
  • Pre game ceremonies and special games with video montages and give away memorabilia to the 1st X amount of fans?
  • Save face and try to do anything it takes to win the mother ****ing Stanley Cup this year?
  • Trade Markov and put DD on wing?


My own opinion, clearly the best way to celebrate our past is to win the stanley cup... ..:biglaugh: ... but jokes aside, I would like a parade down st.catherines this spring with the old 1993 team.

They should not commemorate it.

Commemorating a 20 year old Stanley Cup screams conformity and mediocrity.

BLONG7 07-08-2012 11:10 AM

20 yrs, wow...when I was in Jr-Sr high school, we won 6 cups in 8 years...

No celebration needed, another Stanley Cup would be the only way to make this better...

Ambrose 07-08-2012 11:10 AM

Celebrate it by winning our 25th cup next Spring.

Patrice Brisebois 07-08-2012 11:40 AM

Sounds like the kind of thing the Ducks or the Lightning would do

ClasslessGuy 07-08-2012 11:46 AM

Lets get a banner for it

In 2024 (lightning) and 2027 (ducks).

I'm thinking instead of making fun of the teams that actually have won in the past 20 years we should try to use them as positive examples

Wrong, we celebrated having the opportunity of drafting a future high end quality player. Not having a ****** season.

but by having a crappy season, we can actually get a high end top 5 quality player.

so essentially, we're celebrating crappy seasons

clownquestionbro* 07-08-2012 12:03 PM

the crappy season was a blessing in disguise. High end player, all the useless scum in the management are gone, new vision. Gauthier debauchery actually did the habs a lot of good. Hell yah we should have celebrated.

That's flawed logic. The draft party was about fans celebrating the day organization drafted a great prospect who has potential of becoming an amazing player for us.

You have two ways of looking at Galchenyuk: He's the reminder of an awful season or the beginning of our way out of the basement.

While commemorating a 20 year old Stanley cup is essentially commemorating the fact that we won, 20 years ago.

Lol, no disrespect to those teams, I just meant that the smaller markets tend to have pretty cheesy marketing ideas to keep the attention of the fanbase. A montage on the jumbotron would be enough to commemorate it, a parade would be a bit much.

GordonGraham 07-08-2012 02:39 PM

Enough living in the past im so sick and tired of hearing about the glorious past

We celebrated the end of a crappy season.

Hopefully a mess like this doesn't happen again for decades..

The Russian General 07-08-2012 03:41 PM

Release DVD with all the 93 Playoff games.

Yes.

We'd be celebrating the last time we won a championship which was 2 decades ago, even if were still in the same league and are trying to win another one since then.

It's not like we were the first and last team to ever win a Stanley Cup.

My point is, celebrating something you won such a longtime ago when you're actually trying to repeat the glory is kinda pathetic, in my honest opinion.

coolasprICE 07-09-2012 08:45 AM

lol... seriously guys, only 1 vote for a parade?

I'm sure this entire board would be on st.catherines on the day of the parade. The idea is genius and it has so much potential.

It doesn't have to be a full parade. Something from Atwater to Peel, and at the end of it... autograph session, ball hockey tourney on the street, and maybe some propsects and a few current players will be present as well.

The past should be respected, and used for motivation...relax man...

optimus2861 07-09-2012 12:28 PM

Seriously?

This organization is supposed to celebrate championships, not wallow in past glory. Leave that to the Leafs.

Let's call it a protest instead of a parade. A protest against 20 years of managerial incompetence and organizational inertia. :dunno:

Lafleurs Guy 07-09-2012 12:37 PM

I think we should hire Andy Frost and do some kind of ceremony before every home game to commemorate all the players and coaches on that team. Then, we can have a big parade to let everyone know that we used to know what winning was about...

If the Leafs can do it, so can we. Here's to past glories and the celebration of our 20 years of medicority.

Yeah, I don't really understand the idea of celebrating NOT winning a championship in X amount of years. It's not a great accomplishment. Actually quite sad that one of the most storied franchises in any sport has not held the most valuable trophy of their league in two decades.

SerialSeb 07-09-2012 05:55 PM

You don't celebrate losing for 20 years!
We're not the Maple Leafs!
