Canucks backup goaltender Dany Sabourin replaced Roberto Luongo with with 10:55 remaining, has he gotten his name on the Stanley Cup (if the Canucks win)?
I haven't been able to locate the official excerpt explaining what a goaltender must do in order to get his name on the Stanley Cup, but my understanding is you have to start at least one game in the playoffs.
Corey Schwab, Martin Brodeur's backup in 2003, the year the Devils won the Stanley Cup, he was never credited with winning the Stanley Cup, but he did appear in 2 games.
This means Sabourin will have to start one game in order to get his name on to the Cup.
It would be great if somebody could find the actual excerpt instead of me speculating and guessing.
I had heard once that the player must appear in the playoffs, or play a certain number of games during the regular season to get his name on the hardware. If what you say is truly the case, Schwab got hosed. But don't worry, Sabourin won't get his name on the Cup this year. Anaheim, despite my wishes to the contrary, should dispense with the Canucks rather easily.
I wouldn' even worry about this right now...Canucks are not gonna get out of this round and they are not gonna win the cup...you people in Vancuver are so in love with Loungo, and you really don't care about the other players in your roster...From you blog, it just seems like that that you don't want Dany to even start in net...Anyways, just 3 more games for canucks and they are done.
Geez, people. Chill out. He was commenting on/asking what a goaltender needs to do to be included on the cup, not saying the Canucks would win it! Replace Canucks with Sabres and Sabourin with Conklin if you want. It doesn't change the premise of the blog but I suspect it would change your responses...
^ Thank you.
