... would Jochen Hecht be the first German to get his name on the cup?
Uwe Krupp won it in 1996. Im not sure if anybody before him won it.
Good call on Uwe. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Vanek would be the first Austrian to have his name on it, however. Drury was probably the first MVP of the Little League World Series to win it back when he was with the 'Lanche.
Funny quote by then Avalanche coahc Marc Crawford back in 1996. After Krupp scored the OT Cup winner (first in 16 years believe it or not) he said: "He's the first German to score the Cup winner I'll bet."
Cool, thanks guys
In answer to your thread title..."no"
LOL I got that
While Uwe Krupp WON the Cup, Hect will be the first to DESERVE the Cup if he wins it
Krupp played a couple games for the Red Wings in the 2002 playoffs. Did he get his name on there a second time?
I don`t think so
Marco Sturm will in '08 !
if someone trades him at the deadline
Anyone that scores a cup clinching goal in OT deserves it in my opinion.
That goes double when the fans are carpeting the ice with plastic toys.
OH, be still my beating heart !
You are probably the only person who thinks that the disgrace that Uwe Krupp is actually deserves a Cup.
You missed the plastic toys post, that makes 2
Did he run over your dog or something?
The guy had 16 points in the playoffs that year, putting him at 7th place on his team for that run. I remember watching alot of their run that year, including them beating my Blackhawks (only team I like more is the Flyers). The guy wasn't the greatest player ever, but there are players who contributed less durring that run and still got their names on the Cup.
There is nothing more to add.
What? He was a legitimate 2nd pairing d-man back then.
