Europeon goalies?

It is kind of cool that a Europeon goalie will win a cup this year. Is Hasek the only Europeon goalie to win a cup? If so, it makes this even cooler.

Yes, in fact before Hasek (1999) and Irbe (2002) went to the finals in , Pelle Lindbergh (1985) and Olaf Kolzig (1998) were the only european goalies to make it to the finals as starters.

Is it not ironic that the only other time a European goalie won the Cup, both the goalies competing in the finals were European also?

Aebischer (2001) and Turek (1999) have won the Cup as back-ups.

Chuck Gardiner was European by birth and he was the last goalie to captain a Stanley Cup winner.

The term, "European," is too generic. No self-respecting Finn would want to be categorized with a Russian.

"European" is better than "not North American" as that's always people mean by it when talking hockey. Most of the time one could be more specific to make his point better and use the nationality, but sometimes it's useful to group people together, especially such a small bunch as European NHL goalies. Still, Kipper's old training methods may resemble, say, Martin Brodeur's more than Khabby's.

The Ural mountains are the cut of IIRC so most Russian hockey players are from Europe I believe.

Well I once remember Gonchar , and Mogilny are Asian . Mogilny said he was the first Asian player to reach 1000 pts , and Gonchar said he is probably the best Asian Defencman
