Kaberle Gets His Shot At The Cup

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Tomas Kaberle is in the same exact position as his older brother, Frantisek, was five years ago: playing for the Stanley Cup and thinking this might be his one-and-only chance to win an NHL championship. Frantisek’s Carolina Hurricanes were the favourites and he was one of the defence-by-committee crew that ultimately played seven gruelling cross-continent games against the Edmonton Oilers before winning it all.

“When I saw him come back that summer after winning the Stanley Cup, he looked like a different person,” Kaberle remembered Tuesday. “It was a difficult couple of months for him and they had to work really hard.

“But the first thing he said was, ‘It was worth it.’ I was watching back home on TV. At the end of the day, he said, ‘It was an unbelievable feeling and I’ll probably never be in it again, so I was enjoying it.’”
