Where are you getting this from Sentinel? Generally speaking, just about every North American born & raised player at least through Roys' generation & the ones that followed would much rather win one Stanley Cup let alone 2; never mind the Conn Smythes, Vezinas'. Sure it wouldve been nice, but still. Not on the same level as an 80+ game schedule, playoffs, facing the best night in night out. Theres a reason why they call the Stanley Cup the hardest trophy in sports to win. All due respect to the Olympics', some great hockey played, but a 10 day Tournament Format is a far cry from what it takes to win silverware in the NHL.
