Kovalev Celebrates Tverdovsky Cup Victory

Yeah the day is slow, but in this NHL.com story...

http://www.nhl.com/cup/scj06/scj15.html

It says...

"A huge press conference was held at the Gold's Gym where Tverdovsky works out while in Moscow. Alexei Kovalev, a Stanley Cup champion with the New York Rangers in 1994, and Viacheslav Fetisov, a two-time winner (Detroit in 1997 and 1998), arrived to help their comrade celebrate."

I bet ya my house this would have never happened back when rivalries were taken seriously. After all, Tverdovsky is on the team that eliminated last year.

I have always said that rivalries were taken more seriously by the fans then the actual players.

Good to see Kovalev participate,hoppefully he also signed up for the next few weeks!!!!

But just because Tverdovsky is on the team that eliminated Kovalev doesn't mean their previous friendship should be ignored now

Anyway, is the Hurricanes our rivals ? We hate them, but I don't think the players think that they are their rivals. A team have 1, maybe 2, at top 3 rivals, not more ! Otherwise, rivalry whouldn't mean anything anymore !

players tend to play harder against certain teams, because of rivalries. or so says ken dryden in his book.

Rivalries still matter, but so does nationality... see if Mats Sundin will celebrate with Saku when we win the cup. I see no problem with a Russian sharing the cup celebration with another Russian, especially since Kovy has already won it in his career.

Um, Sundin is Swedish and Koivu is Finnish. Why would Sundin be happy for Koivu winning the Cup?

Rivalries might of meant something when most players played for a team for more than 2-3 seasons. Player shuffling makes rivalries all blur.

Kovalev is just taking measures to see if the Cup will fit in the car he'll buy this year.

Dude... that was my point. A Russian would celebrate with another Russian, they share a common bond of nationality. Finns and Swedes have one of the biggest int'l rivalries in the world, they would not celebrate with each other.
