No Cup For Canada

from Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail,
Only 86 seconds into the match, the first roar went up, a goal scored by a tall, blond man from Ontario, helped out by a short dark-haired man from British Columbia. Unfortunately for flag-waving Canadians, Aaron Ward and Mark Recchi were playing for the other side. So, too, was the goalie from Edmonton, 22-year-old Cam Ward, now the toast of Raleigh, N.C., as the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the most valuable player in the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs. “The Conn Smythe is completely irrelevant on this team,” Mr. Ward said. “You could have given it to anyone on this team.” “The real important one is the Stanley Cup.” He said this to the CBC, though there is no need to tell Canadians this.
