DoH!  I hadn't even thought of that until you brought it up.  :D  In that case, go IRISH!!!

Hockey is too ingrained in me to not think of IT first. I've been a Harry Potter fan since the first book, but I've been a hockey fan since before the Stars moved to town. I used to go see the Freeze in Reunion long, long ago.

Psyche ... I didn't even look at the thread until after you posted... and that was also my first thought...

Oh...the Stanley cup... I was wondering why you were asking about the Cup since it isn't happening again until 2010.  World Cup Soccer!!!   8)

Not much Ice here in Florida...and they disbanded the Orlando Solar Bears...the bastards.   Tampa Bay Lightning hasn't won the Stanley Cup since 2004 so who cares ? :sleepy:

Wings in 4 5 6.

Then, Detroit in 7, I suspect. Hockey Jesus may be good, but he's never had to face Lidstrom and Rafalski for an extended series.

Good luck on your jersey!

Related to this whole discussion is the fact that Sidney Crosby makes me feel like I've wasted my life. He's one year younger than me and is making millions of dollars doing what he loves to do.

At least I have options after I suffer crippling leg injuries, though.

Oh, and I had a childhood.

Kinda related....sorta....ok it's a stretch.

When I lived in AZ I worked for a customs broker.  One of my clients was....Claude Lemieux.  REALLY!  But that's not the story, that is a whole other story in itself.  Rabid Red Wing fan gets call from Claude...the most hated player in Detroit.  Anyway, he was importing teak furniture and he brings me in the paperwork from overseas and it's addressed...to....MARIO LEMIEUX.  No kidding.  By the time I got done laughing, which he thought was hilarious that I got the irony, we actually became friends. 

Mario usta play for the Penquins.  Kinda related.

Uhm, Sweetie... surely you're joking?

The Wings have been Cup Champions many, many times over!  I don't think there's a USA Franchise that can touch the record of the Wings.

Um no she's not kidding.  Actually the Wings aren't that high up there in the cup count.  The most cup parties goes to Montreal.  Damn Habs.  The most USA franchise cup parties goes to the Islanders. However, playoff count, hell yes...I think this is the 16 or 17th straight season for the playoffs.  And if they do manage to win, it will only be the fourth time in all those playoffs!  That's why we are so anxious to get it to Detroit.

I stand corrected...the Wings do have the most cup victories.  But the Habs still hold the record.  And the Canadien teams get to play so gotta count their records too. 

It's been too long and it's time to bring it back to Detroit anyway!

The Wings have that habit of making it to the finals but not quite going all the way....I think it's something like 22 or 23 three times in the last 25 years that they made it to the playoffs but they walked away with 3 Lord Stanley's. Every year we hope....keeping the fingers crossed though for this year!

oh, Apropos is correct, they have gone 17 times to the playoffs, the most anyone has gone! It's a record in fact!

Pthbt!  See?!  I know what I'm talking about sometimes.   :D

Besides, I said USA franchise - Montreal doesn't count.

Unfortunately, Lord Stanley says they do count.   I wish they did have records for each country, but alas, Wing fans have to settle for second best....for now!
