The NHL’s Stanley Cup final will not feature any hockey players or teams this year.
The event will not be played in London or Paris this time.
That leaves us with a new question: What will the players, coaches and fans sing about during the festivities?
Here are a few suggestions:”I got a great night at the Stanley, I got a team to beat!”
– Boston Bruins captain Zdeno CharaAfter winning the Stanley last season, Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeny Chara said he was “blown away” by the event.
The Bruins defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-2 to clinch the second-straight Cup.
“I’m not gonna lie,” Chara told reporters after the game.
“I’m pretty excited for it, but you never know, maybe there’ll be something.
I don’t know.
Maybe the Cup itself.
Maybe I’ll go up there and play a song or two.”
While Chara’s words may be true, the NHL does not have the power to decide whether to feature hockey players at this year’s event.
As of now, the tournament will take place in Montreal and Vancouver, with the final in Toronto.
“We’re looking at the best and brightest, and we want to do what’s best for the sport,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters.
“We’re not going to decide if they’re playing or not.
But we want them to have a great experience.”
Here are some suggestions from the hockey community:The New York Rangers have not confirmed any plans to participate in this year ‘Cup’ as it stands, but head coach Alain Vigneault has said he would love to see them participate.
“To be part of the Stanley is a great honor, especially because it’s a hockey event,” Vigneaud said.
“There’s a lot of great players and great teams in this league, so I’m sure I would be proud to be part.
I’ve been to this tournament and I’ve seen the players.
I’m not going out there to make myself available to the public or make myself an icon.
I love this competition.
I want to see the best players on the ice, so that’s what I’m going to do.
I’ll tell you one thing: We’re going to put the best athletes in there.
And that’s just what we do.”
