The Stanley Cup, the greatest trophy a hockey player could ever receive and get the honor of carrying it on the ice in front of thousands of fans and to be there in the moment when it happens to your team and you’re in the arena it is such an unforgettable experience. My dad was one of those lucky people who got to experience the Anaheim Ducks win the Stanley Cup 10 years ago. I was not one of the lucky ones who got to experience the Anaheim Ducks win the Stanley Cup at Honda Center but I was there when the Anaheim Ducks celebrated the 10th anniversary of winning the Stanley Cup and that is a memory I will carry with me for the rest of my life. It was only a few hours but in those few hours I was in the same building as were almost all of the great Anaheim Ducks that played on the team when we won the Stanley Cup. Players like: Chris Pronger, Teemu Selane, Francois Beauchimin, George Perros, Niedermayer Brothers, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Richard Jackman, Chris Kunitz, Todd Merchant, Andy McDonald, and head coach Randy Carlyle, just to name a few. As a Ducks fan it was way more than being privileged to be in the same place as these amazing athletes. At that game, which the defeated the Washington Capitals 5-3, I think a little bit of having Stanley Cup Champions in the building had to do with the win but no one really knows. I think that because we defeated a #1 team in their division and in the league while the 2007 Stanley Cup Champions were in the building.
The goal that every NHL hockey team has is to win the Stanley Cup and become this season’s Stanley Cup Champions. The question is which team is going to do whatever it takes to win it and be the next team to have their names on the Stanley Cup. It is my hope that the next team to be put on the Stanley Cup is THE ANAHEIM DUCKS
Stay tuned because more will come about the Stanley Cup and their journey they have in the playoffs this season
LET’S GO DUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
