Tuesday Linkfest! ‘Canes Take The Cup

Happy Tuesday, all you crazy right wing nutjobs Caniacs! Forget the politics this morning, I wouldn't be a good Carolinian and Raleigh resident without a shoutout for the Stanley Cup Champions, the Carolina Hurricanes! From the Raleigh N&O

RALEIGH – As his teammates danced wildly at the other end of the ice, Rod Brind'Amour skated by himself, head bowed and hands on his knees, overwhelmed with emotion.

After years of struggle for the captain and the Carolina Hurricanes, he was only minutes away from lifting the Stanley Cup above his head.

You could say it took the Hurricanes 10 months and 107 games to win the Stanley Cup, but it really took nine years, countless losses, the trials and tribulations of a slapdash move, two years in Greensboro and a lost season to realize this impossible dream. A franchise once seen as hopeless has now conquered the entire hockey world.

On the brink of tragedy after missing out on two chances to close out the Edmonton Oilers, the Hurricanes claimed ultimate success with a 3-1 win in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals on Monday, securing North Carolina's first major league title and setting off a night of wild celebration across the Triangle, starting with the scene at center ice at the RBC Center where Brind'Amour accepted the Cup from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

Congratulations, Carolina Hurricanes!

    9 years to win the Stanley Cup….thats kind of dick forgetting the 18 years they were in the NHL as the Hartford Whalers (and doesn’t include the years in the WHA as the New England Whalers when they won the AVCO World Trophy)

    True. I kinda try to forget that my Devils actually go back to what, 72/73 as the KC Chiefs, the worst team ever. 🙂
