Lord Stanley's Cup


"I have for some time been thinking that it would be a good thing if there were a challenge cup which should be held from year to year by the champion hockey team in the Dominion (of Canada).

"There does not appear to be any such outward sign of a championship at present, and considering the general interest which matches now elicit, and the importance of having the game played fairly and under rules generally recognized, I am willing to give a cup which shall be held from year to year by the winning team."

Another great line by Orbs:

Q: What do you remember of those first two years with the Whalers?

A. The biggest thing I remember is Brass Bonanza. I can't get it out of my head.
