When your career is said and done, you've made plenty of money, and accomplished the one thing that matters. When you win the hart and no cup, you're the legend who couldn't get it done, and you have that regret for your life. There's a reason there was such a big deal made over Borque winning the cup with the avalanche. Grown men don't cry over winning the hart. It's nice recognition, but it doesn't really matter that much in the end.
Yes there is. It's because "it's a shame" if a player that is considered the best among his peers never caps off a successful career with at least one Cup. Don't be fooled, though. If Bourque never ends up going to the Avalanche, and never gets that Cup, he doesn't look back at that Avalanche roster while standing at the HHoF podium and wish that he was born as Greg DeVries instead. And let's continue to be honest, Greg DeVries doesn't ending up look at his Cup ring and thanking God that he wasn't born as Ray Bourque.
