STANLEY CUP EDITION


In honour of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final, this week’s Be A Player: Rewind features a special Stanley Cup edition.

Take a trip down memory lane with Stanley Cup champion and host, Craig Simpson, circa 2001 as he interviews some of the game’s greatest on hoisting hockey’s most coveted prize.

Hear from the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, and Joe Sakic – just to name a few. Defencemen Brian Leetch, Ray Bourque, and Brian Rafalski also weigh in, as Bourque’s words as a two-time finalist aren’t reflective of the Stanley Cup he would famously go on to win later that season after the episode was filmed.

Then and now

Not much has changed in terms of what it takes to hoist Lord Stanley. The grit, guts, and grind are on full display in an exciting Stanley Cup Final currently being played out by the Washington Capitals in their first appearance since 1998 against the fairy tale Vegas Golden Knights.
