40 Games in the regular season or 1 game in the final are the criteria. You can thank the Red Wings for ruining it for the black aces by getting carried away with names that were to go onto the cup. (something about a dog or Mrs Illitch-----anyone remember what it was?)
former Finnish league standout, played very well in the middle of the playoffs and will not get his name on the Cup. Neither will Darren Rumble.
Both will be listed as Stanley Cup Champions and most likely will receive The Stanley Cup ring.
Our tv commentator said something about "a new rule" which allowed Raimo Summanen, current head coach of Team Finland, listed as Stanley Cup champion even though he didn't get his name to the cup when he play with Edmonton Oilers way back.
