Worthy Cup Recipients

The Cup’s going to be raised by a few heroes a heckuva lot sooner than expected.  From a league press release,

NEW YORK (January 19, 2007) - NHL All-Star starting goaltender Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres is one of several players expected to join dozens of volunteers and loved ones in welcoming U.S. soldiers returning from a tour of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The Stanley Cup and six NHL mascots will accompany him during the visit.

During the visit, Miller will unveil two custom-designed goalie masks honoring U.S. and Canadian troops. The masks, designed by renowned sports artist David Arrigo, will be displayed in the terminal during the visit.

Outstanding move.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
