BTW, anybody have a police report?
Funny hearing people say that. Look at all those scrub players now. The ones still playing have either won a cup somewhere else, or are leading the teams they are on like Ladd.

I reread the game 7 against Boston from 2009. Pretty good, not on the New Jersey level tho. I did like that after Walker won it, someone said:

Ladd did both- he won with Chicago. Williams, Adams, Recchi also have won since- am I missing anyone?

Some fans of sports teams, especially who post anonymously on the Internet are *******s. Also, the sky is blue.

Hmm, may need to break out the DVD and rewatch game 7. I think I have it around here somewhere...
This.

I had moved to Raleigh in 2001 and got on the '02 Cup train. That Game 7 tho...my wife would tell you that I could hardly watch the game. Kept leaving the room and finally turned on the radio to hear Chuck since I just couldn't watch. Went back in just before Williams scored so got to see him score and hear Chuck's call. Amazing.

Two months later we moved to Maine. Which really meant that when a friend with connections to the team invited me to a private party with the Cup not long after, I was too poor from moving to fly back down to go. Saddest. Day. Ever.

Sarcasm. Even if he did get suspended, it only would've been one game.
