I can only imagine the clamor if he went 10 games with two assists

Since 1986, two of the wealthiest and most storied franchises have a whopping one Stanley Cup between them. That's 50 years of opportunity for those who are counting. 38 years combined since the last Cup. When players get turned on after an incredibly small sample and under conditions which have changed for them, other players, coaches and managers look at that and shake their heads.

Enjoy your history. That's about all you'll have with the unbelievable childish attitudes that such a significant number of the fans have. The Cup will probably be skated around the ice one of the hockey meccas of Nashville or Columbus before it does again in Toronto or Montreal.
While I agree with your sentiments...Nashville and Columbus winning the cup before Toronto or Montreal is hog wash Wouldn't matter if neither Toronto or the Habs win a cup in another 50 yrs, Nashville nor Columbus won't be in the league long enough to get a cup
