A Tribute to the Legends

After hearing nothing but negative stories about the NHL all season it is a nice change to finally hear something positive. In recent years it has become a tradition for each member of the winning team to get the Stanley Cup for a day during the summer. Since there will not be a winning team this season, the NHL has decided to allow the oldest living past Stanley Cup winners to spend a day with the trophy.

The first to get it will be 91 year old Ray Getliffe (won it with '39 Bruins & '44 Canadiens), followed by another 91 year old Clint Smith ('40 Rangers). So while millionaire players and owners fight over league finances, it will be the legends that made squat and truly played for the love of the game spending time with the cup. I couldn't think of anything more deserving and appropriate.
