Meech on Cup
The club successfully petitioned the NHL to have Meech's name engraved on the Stanley Cup. He didn't meet the requirement of 40 regular season games or one game in the finals (he appeared in 32 regular season games and didn't dress in the playoffs), but the league recognized he was with the team the whole season. The Cup will be engraved later this month.

how's that crow tastin' ...

My wife and I are going to be going to the Michigan/Wisconsin game in late September, and I was hoping someone would be able to give me some suggestions for what would be the cheapest/easiest way to stay while we're in town.

I'll be driving in from Wisconsin and I've heard that driving is not going to happen on Saturday, and hotel prices are through the roof anywhere near the Big House. Anyone have any insight on what might be a good way to get close and not pay through the roof? I was thinking of possibly taking a shuttle to the game, but I don't want to be stuck in traffic for 3 hours either.

Please help me out if you can.

uff da ... i'm staying at the holiday inn over by briarwood ... i'd offer to let you crash, but you are probably wearing red ...

go blue ...

No, 41 is correct because that is half the regular season.

As I originally posted, its 41...which is half the regular season.


no ...

40 ...


from the wings 2002 championship ...

"Manny Legace's name was misspelled MANNY LEGECE with an "E" instead of an "A". An "A" was stamped over the second "E" twice to correct this mistake.
Detroit wanted to include 30 Non Players on the cup including the 7 Ilitch children, 7 scouts, and office staff (Paul MacDonald and Nancy Beard). Maxium Kuznetsov who played 39 games (1 short of required 40 games played to guarantee his name on the Stanley Cup), Sean Avery played 36 games for Detroit (36 in the minors). Both players did not play in the playoffs. Uwe Krupp also played 8 regular season games and 2 playoff games, after missing over 60 games due to a back injury. These 3 players, along with 2 trainers, were left off the cup. It is tradition that Ass't Equipment Manager Tim Abbott(on cup in 1997, 1998), and Masseur Sergei Tchekmarevare are included on the Stanley Cup. Since only a maximum 52 names can be engraved the cup each year, Detroit chose these 5 members to be left off. Each team is required to dress 20 out of a 23 players roster each game. However, Detroit only engraved 22 players on the Stanley Cup in 2003."

from nhl.com

"To earn the status of getting your name engraved on the Stanley Cup, players must play at least 40 games through the regular season or one in the Cup final."
