By hoisting the Cup over head...the one and only goal of every hockey team in the NHL. You're right it is a team achievement. And without everyone on the team functioning the way they did, there may not have been a Cup. You play to win the championship. If you succeed you are worth every penny. You can also be worth it if you light it up on a bad team. It's clear no one else on here agrees with me so I am just going to keep out of this argument. I said I was going to stay out of in the last thread and I should have stuck to it.
