Stanley Cup Hangover

From Rocky Bonanno at NHL.com

In a summer filled sure to be filled with partying and back-slapping, members of the Detroit Red Wings must be careful not to come down with a mythical illness known around hockey circles as “Stanley Cup Hangover.”

I’ve subscribed to this theory for quite some time, and keep it in mind whenever preparing for another fantasy draft. Quite simply, it is the belief that teams that advance to the Cup Final, whether win or lose, are more susceptible to disappointing performances the following season, and especially vulnerable are veterans on the wrong side of 30.

continued… as he puts his theory to the test looking at past finalists
