I certainly can't say that I am rooting for the rangers in this one for obvious reasons
but i do have a question about the Victoria Cup.
If you guys win, do you bring the cup home with you and wait for another team to beat you to become "Victoria Cup Chanpions" or whatever the name would be? or is it more like Lord Stanley where teams just compete for it every year?
anyways, should be an interesting game
I don't think there's an actual, physical cup that will be awarded.
The IIHF commissioned a new trophy designed by GDE Bertoni which designed the FIFA World Cup trophy. The Victoria Cup is a gold cup with twelve Perspex – a thermoplastic material – light blue hockey sticks, six on each side, sitting on a marble case and forming a “V” coming up and out of the Cup. The names of the winning clubs will be engraved on the back of the sticks.
BB saying that 5 players on the ice after practice were Potter, Fahey, Voros, Orr and Wiikman. So these will most likely be 5 of the 6 scratches for today's game. The 6th will most likely be Rissmiller.
