It must be the hotel I stayed during the 1991 Canada Cup. Team Sweden and Team Finland were there too, so it was cool to see the players hanging around. I remember being in the same elevator with young Teemu Selänne, just the two of us
It was handy the hotel was so near the Maple Leaf Gardens, because when we went to see the semifinal Canada-Sweden, I accidently took a wrong ticket with me, but had still time to go back to the hotel and get right ticket.
